Fresh Healthy Bean Salsa

This is a great Salsa Recipe,  I think this recipe came from my Aunt Rosemary, but my mom has been making it for years, and not sure where my Aunt got it from, but its a great recipe and should be shared!

Nothing about this recipe is technical, because nothing in life should be. I have no exact measurements, and this whole recipe can be altered on what you like and what you don’t like, so let me know they way you make it, or like it!

Fresh Salsa:

Heres what I used on my latest batch, and it was a HUGE one. If you only cooking for a family, make half of this, but if your taking it to a party use these measurements.

  • 2 Cans of Black Beans ( you could use white or red as well)
  • 1 Can of Whole Sweet Corn
  • Half of Green Pepper
  • Half of Red Pepper
  • 1/4 of a Sweet Onion
  • One Bunch of Fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • Juice of One Lime
  • Salt
  • Pepper

First Rinse Beans and Corns and place in your bowl. Chop the Peppers, Onions, and Tomatoes into small cubes and mix in with beans and corn. Chop Cilantro add. Juice Lime pour in, may use more or less according to taste, and add salt and pepper to taste.

I like my salsa refrigerated before I eat it! Enjoy!

Oops I did it again-Lemon Lime Truffles

Played with your heart, got lost in the game OH BABY BABBYY. haha oopsies, 90’s kick, but really

ITS LEMON WEEK. I promise this is the last one. But to my defense, Lime is also in this dessert, and Lemon is the perfect taste of summer.

So how could you resist the urge to make these?!

Lemon Lime Cookie Truffles

Here is out they are supposed to look when finished:

Yeah right, if you read this blog before, you know this is not how my things turn out, and things ARE NOT pretty.

Anywho,

So I made the cookie according to the directions, but used a 8×8 pan. Didnt have a 9×9.

I also didn’t wait for the cookie to cool, I dont have that kind of time, I crumbled it right out of the oven.

Here is the BIG change, I used cream cheese frosting instead of regular cream cheese. I made the balls slightly bigger than you see in the picture

So I threw them in the freezer for a few minutes, then melted white chocolate chips and a little bit of oil, like I always use when I am melting chocolate.

I started dipping and almost ran out of chocolate, I go heavy on the chocolate, and it never comes out smooth, I gotta start buying candy chocolate. Who can actually make them like the picture above?

 

I froze them as the Tuesday Night Dinner Crew went out to our Dinner. Last dinner, so we decided none of us would make anything. I like them frozen, but I also want to thaw some and eat them fresh at room temp. The Lemon Lime flavor in them is so great! I could of eaten just the cookie! I also dont like the large size I made, I wish iI made them smaller more manageable to bite.

Overall

Success!
