A few Tex-Mex inspired recipes to put you in the mood for Cinco de Mayo. . .
Southwestern Layered Salad Recipe adapted from Southern Living~
A Quick and Easy Salsa. . .
Almost homemade :-)
Start with your favorite jar of salsa, we like a store brand that has black beans and corn in it. To it add:
1 can of black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 can of diced tomatoes, not drained, since our salsa is thick (I used one with diced green chilis)
1 cup of frozen corn, thawed~ Trader Joe’s has a Fire-Roasted Corn that’s great!
juice of 1 Lime
Cilantro to taste
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
And of course, a Muy Bueno Pomegranate Margarita :-) to wash it down, recipe found here.
