Stuffed Artichoke Bottoms with Black Bean Salsa

Making a double batch of this lively black bean salsa to enjoy this week on eggs for brunch, as a snack after gardening with my favorite corn chips.  Do you have a favorite way to serve up black bean salsa?  Here is a creative and beautiful way to serve up  this favorite fiber filled salsa mostly because I have growing artichoke on my to-do list someday soon in the geodesic bio dome!   I hope you will enjoy this recipe as you celebrate Cinco De Mayo.
