We love taco night here at Casa Bollow.

When we have taco night, we try to use new recipes, flavor combinations and ingredients to mix things up a bit.

This recipe came from a recent taco night where I made Carnitas Tacos.

I didn’t take a ton of prep photos.

I know, all of the food blogger peeps do, but seriously — do you really need to see the black beans in a can or the chopped up pineapple, jalapenos, red bell pepper and cliantro?

I didn’t think so.

What I love about this black bean salsa with pineapple and jalapeno is that it has such a great fresh flavor and it’s easy.  I mean EASY!

It was so good, I had a little bowl as a snack sans tacos!

You’ll notice that I don’t have onion in my salsa. Definitely add a little red onion if you like it.

My hubs doesn’t care for raw onions so I leave it out of most recipes.
