This is one time when it is ok to let the beans split when they are cooked. It makes for a softer salsa and can be used as a condiment for soft tacos, fajitas, in a salad or just scooped up with great tortilla chips.

1 Large Tomato Seeded and Chopped
2 Cups Roasted Corn (About 3 Ears)
1 Medium Red Pepper, Finely Diced (3/4 Cup)
