Salsa Is Too Sweet

I bought some black bean and white corn salsa. The salsa is a little too sweet for my taste. What can I add or do to it to make it not so sweet?

If you like heat, get a few jalapenos, roast them lightly, chop up and add... yummy!

I read that cider vinegar will work in things too sweet, I think I had that same salsa and I threw it out. I wish I had known putting the cider vinegar in :-)

Tomatoes will cut the sweetness, as well as enhance the flavor of the beans and corn.

Let us know what you added, it may well be a new recipe we would all like to try.

When in doubt, slow cook chicken and add it together. I flavors of the chicken will soften the sweetness. Or cook some rice and add salt. It might cut the sweetness to.

I would add some lime juice to it. Don't forget to zap your fresh lime for 10 seconds in the microwave, then roll on the counter while pressing down to get the most juice out of it. Add juice a tablespoon at a time stirring well and then tasting to get it right for your taste buds!

You could put some in the strainer and rinse it.

Add it to a salad

or

add some red or white wine vinegar

Just add lime or lemon juice a little at a time until it's to your taste.
