Black Bean Salsa

Contributor: Mark Schlereth.

If you’re like me and watch ESPN regularly, then you know Mark Schlereth. In fact, that’s where I met Mark—when I was up at the campus visiting. Mark’s both a talented radio and TV sportscaster. And certainly it goes without saying, with an NFL career like his, he was a pretty good football player, too. During his 12 years in the NFL, he played in two Pro Bowls and won three Super Bowls—one with the Washington Redskins and two with the Denver Broncos.

This is Mark’s black bean salsa recipe, which he recommends you serve with his Green Chile Eggs Benedict.
