Corn & Bean Salsa (Top 8 & Gluten Free)

I LOVE Mexican food, salsas, and tortilla chips.  If I have a choice between Panera & Chipotle, I always choose Chipotle!  I’m always excited to find new salsa recipes, and when my friend made this recently for a party, I was hooked!  She sent me the original recipe (found HERE), but she simplified it a bit and took out the added sugar.  I’ve made it three times now, and I thought this was the perfect recipe to share now that Spring and cookouts are underway.
