Spicy Black Bean and Corn Relish
One of the great things about a good relish is that it can be used to top anything and everything. Anywhere from hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches and even meat fresh off the grill. The combination of black beans, corn, peppers, and onions make this a delicious and hearty relish that you can even have as a side on its own if you feel like it. Casa M Spice Co® Uncontrolled Cattle Drive® seasoning brings a bold kick to this recipe, if you like things extra spicy, feel free to add as much as you like. There are certainly no rules here! Vinegar is a natural preservative, because of that, this relish can be stored for up to 3 weeks in your refrigerator. So make a ton! You’re going to be putting it on everything!
