How to make Three Bean Salsa

Simply combine all of the ingredients. Then, let marinate in the refrigerator for a couple hours up to overnight before serving. This Three Bean Salsa also gets better as it sits. This is great because this big batch can last a few days!

Chickpeas, black beans and pinto beans are used for this recipe. Any of the beans could be swapped for another kind if desired.

Serve it with your favorite chips or on anything you put salsa on and enjoy!
