I can not believe it is November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. After putting up and cleaning up the Halloween decorations I thought, why do we spend so much time decorating our homes, only to take it all down in what feels like days later? So, I am going to start decorating for Christmas now (sorry Thanksgiving!) and enjoy those decorations for a whole month!
We are having Nate’s best friend and his new girlfriend over to the house for dinner tonight. Over the past couple months the boys have been hunting and have come back with ducks and geese. So guess what is on the menu tonight?
I am all for trying new meats and food in general, but I still like to have something “normal” to eat on the side…on the off-chance that someone dislikes the adventurous dish, there is something to fill up on. I haven’t met anyone who did not like this salsa! It is fruity, sweet, spicy, and healthy all in one bowl. You can eat it with tortilla chips, in tacos, or even on a salad. And if you are having people over for dinner and need a quick appetizer to throw together, this is it!
1 16oz jar of peach salsa
1 16oz bag or box of frozen corn (plain corn, not the bags of corn with cream sauce)
1 15.25oz of black beans, drained and rinsed
20oz can of crushed pinapple, drained (leave a small amount of juice in the can for flavor, you just don’t want the salsa to be soupy)
1 bell pepper, diced (any color, I usually choose orange)
1 jalapeno, finely chopped (optional, this is only for those of you who like it spicy)
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper
1 bag tortilla chips
Ok are you ready for this? This may be the hardest dish to prepare on my blog…
In a large food storage container, add and stir together all of the ingredients above.
Grab some chips, and enjoy 🙂
-Add a small red onion, finely diced
-Add some cilantro for a fresh herb flavor
-Use a different jarred salsa for your “base”
-Instead of crushed pineapple try mango, peaches, papaya
