Carolina Salsa

This is my go to app for any gathering where I need to take something, not to fancy just great tasting!  We (my friends) call it Carolina Salsa and I have been making it for so many years I can’t even remember where it originally came from. My sister especially loves it because it is tomato free. You guys know I am in love with tomatoes but this is a great fresh app and IT IS EASY ON THE WAISTLINE!! It makes a ton and everywhere I have taken it everyone loves it! I hope YOU do too!!
2 cans black beans, drained & rinsed
2 cans mexicorn, drained & rinsed
1 large cucumber, seeded and chopped fine
1/2 red onion, chopped fine
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
Just mix everything together and as always I must say, it is BEST if you make it the night before or the morning of serving it. It just gets better as all the flavors meld.
Serve with tortilla chips.

Taco Bake

I am really trying to save money at the grocery and everywhere in my life. I made the FIESTA CHILI last night and thought it would be great to re-purpose the chili for a TACO NIGHT!I mean heck it already has taco seasoning, green chilies, corn and beans. All I do for the taco bake is I take flour tortillas, leftover chili, shredded cheese and start layering.

4 flour tortilla (in cold section at grocery)
3 cups leftover Fiesta Chili (or whatever meat/bean/corn combo)
1 sm bag shredded mexi cheese
lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream (for serving with)

Then toss in oven at 400 for 20mins. ENJOY!!
