Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen is cooking up something fresh and healthy in the kitchen this week!
I have made a lot of homemade salsa in my lifetime – but this recipe is VERY different from mine – check out the Italian dressing and chili powder – 2 unexpected ingredients! She writes:
I make this often for family, friends, and guests…It is delicious not only with chips but also on salads, tacos, and wraps! Mmmmm!!!
Cilantro, shoepeg corn, black beans, Italian dressing, garlic, Tobasco, chili powder, red pepper, green pepper, onion, cubanelle pepper, tomato
Rinse and drain black beans
Place beans and corn in large bowl
Dice red and green peppers
Dice onions and garlic…add everything to bowl
Pour Italian dressing over top
Add Chili powder
Toss well and let sit in refrigerator covered until ready to serve.
Serve with chips, on top of a salad, in a wrap, or on a taco!
Beware…it does NOT last long!
3 Tbsp chopped Cilantro
1 can (11oz) Shoepeg corn
1/2 onion diced
1 red pepper diced
1 green pepper diced
1 Cubanelle pepper diced
1 medium tomato diced
1 can (16 oz) black beans
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1 Tbsp fresh garlic
(you may substitute 1 tsp garlic powder)
1 Tbsp Tobasco
1 tsp chili powder
Drain and rinse black beans in a colander. Mix well with all other ingredients.
Q. What is Cilantro?
A. It is a delicious herb used in many Spanish, Indian, and Middle Eastern dishes. I recommend purchasing it fresh by the parsley at your grocery store (not in the package). Read the rubber band that is wrapped around it to make sure you are getting Cilantro.
Q. What is a Cubanelle pepper?
A. A banana pepper. It’s sweet and is found next to the red and green peppers at the grocery store
Q. What is Shoepeg Corn?
A. It’s a small, white and very sweet corn.
Love to you, Janelle
Thank you Janelle for another GREAT recipe!!!
