This recipe is from my SALSAVINO cookbook
(pg 36)

This salsa recipe was created to pair with a
1998 Livermore Valley Cellars Alicante Bouchet.
"Biff", the winemaker created 2 styles of this
varietal, a Yin and a Yang. This was the Yang
version and was a bold red wine and would pair
well with this salsa.

(quoted from the book) Spending time in both
Costa Rica, with their prevalence of black
beans, and Mexico with their roasted elotes
(street vendor grilled corn on the cob) was my
inspiration for this creation. The chewiness and
toasty flavor of the wine matched the corn and
bean flavor and texture.
