buzzy is here so we can get some work done…but i’m forcing her to eat my leftovers from last night, blogging the recipes THEN i will work on the antiques project.
one has to have priorities.
first of all, i’m so glad that some of you wanted my recipes! thanks a bunch. so here goes, from the kitchen of goodbear:
goodbear’s not-bad-for-a-gringa salsa:
1 fresh jalapeno pepper – chopped
1 fresh anaheim chili pepper – diced
3 medium fresh tomatoes – diced (i like mine chunky)
3 cloves fresh garlic(i sometimes use more!)
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 cup fresh chopped green onion – green and white parts
1 can stewed tomatoes – dice the chunks
2 tbsp. diced green chilis
salt & pepper to taste
i like my salsa hot and chunky! the night before serving, chop, slice and dice the peppers, garlic, onion and tomatoes. mix em up. take your stewed tomatoes, but before adding them to the mix, slice the tomato to your preferred chunkiness. add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT the cilantro.
over night the flavors will blend and the salsa becomes a little hotter. right before serving add the fresh chopped cilantro. you can add it the night before, too, but since we have so many cilantro lovers here at cody bear’s friends….it stands out more if you add it right before serving.
serves 2 – 15 people, depending on how hungry they are and how tasty the other dishes are!
goodbear’s damn-i-need-a-side-dish easy corn salad:
2 cans whole kernel corn – rinsed well & drained
1 can black beans – rinsed well & drained
1 medium red onion – chopped
1/2 red wine vinagrette dressing
1-2 tsp ground cumin
1/2-3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
salt & pepper to taste
prepare the night before serving. in medium mixing bowl mix red wine vinagrette dressing and cumin. next add chopped onion, corn and beans. stir ingredients. and just a little salt & pepper. again, i like adding the cilantro the next day. also, depending on what brand of dressing you use, you may want to add a couple extra tbsp.s of olive oil.
this dish takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare. i have no idea how many folks it serves.
here is buzzy, enjoying her leftovers and working diligently on her defense:
thanks for stopping by!
