Fiesta Me Salsa

Tonight we are traveling to Mexico (me-he-co). Did you know “salsa” was the Spanish term for “sauce”? Better yet did you know that there are over 12 different types of salsas?

Welp now you know and in case you don’t eat a lot of salsa here is one to add to your recipe. We’re going to call this one “Fiesta Me Salsa”.

Ingredients:
1 can of drained black beans (organic has less liquid)
1 can of drained sweet yellow corn (extra crispy maintains the consistency of the mixture)
1 tbsp of freshly chopped cilantro
3 slices of green peppers
3 slices of red peppers
1 slice of sweet onion (cut as a circular slice)
Salt and pepper to season

Chop the cilantro, then mix the cilantro, onions and peppers into the corn and bean mixture.

Season with salt and pepper, add a little garlic powder to tie in all the flavors. Serve.

I decided to provide LaurenAsh with a nice little platter, so I accompanied the corn and bean salsa with organic blue corn chips and original salsa (only had 1/2 a cup left so I figured it was time to finish off).

One thought on “Fiesta Me Salsa

  1. The key is reduce, reuse, rccleye.Reduce your purchases (of stuff and of energy). We have been encouraged to be super consumers in recent years but much of what we buy is unnecessary stuff which quickly ends up in landfill. Our parents were perfectly happy with far less stuff and keeping up with the neighbours is the cause of a great deal of stress. It also requires us to work more hours to earn the money to buy the stuff, whereas greater happiness could be achieved by spending the time with family and friends.Reuse stuff that still has life in it rather than replace it because it is a little shabby or out of date. Learn to repair. Again keeping up with the neighbours is stressful whereas there is great satisfaction in repairing.Recycle stuff that can no longer be reused.Living in an apartment you will not have a lot of spare space so I recommend you Google freecycle and your town (for example freecycle toronto). It will probably lead you to a community of people that advertise spare stuff for collection by members of the community that can make use of it. It is a great way of reducing what goes to landfill.Finally I recommend fresh organic food cooked at home.I am glad you are looking for ways to be more green. Best wishes.
