Just in case you look at these pictures and think I’m nuts, these green beans, sautéed till slightly blistered, then tossed with soy, honey and garlic stole the show the other night at dinner.
Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.
I love mixing up fresh salsas and sides, especially now that the warm weather is here! This Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa is perfect for a side with Mexican, Southwestern or Barbecued food, or just for dipping when the mood hits.
I don’t know about you, but I love, love, love me some Chicken Tortilla Soup. Or some Turkey Tortilla Soup. Or probably ANY Tortilla Soup. Just put it in front of me and I’ll eat it – no questions asked.
Creamy, dreamy with a hint of heat and a touch of smokiness, this White Chicken Chili is great family fare and perfect for a gathering, too.
Refried beans are so often misunderstood – unless you’ve had great ones! That’s another post, requiring planning and foresight to soak and cook the lovely pintos, but in the meantime, don’t be afraid to pick up can. Yep, a can. I said it, me, who hardly endorses any premade products. Get the right brand and use this top-secret method to doctor them up into creamy goodness.
