Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa

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.

Irish Pub Nachos

Ok, so they’re not Irish and they’re not really Nachos. But what they are is ooey, gooey, cheesy potato deliciousness with the spiciness of nachos. And there’s bacon (or corned beef, if you have some) sprinkled throughout. You might call this an appetizer, but for us it was a fun meal.

Slow Cooker Mexican Style Honey Lime Chicken

I always say I don’t use my crock pot enough, so if you’re like me, here’s a recipe that will put that slow cooker into regular rotation. Honey Lime Chicken. If there’s ever a better taste combo than slightly spicy, slightly sweet, tangy Honey Lime Chicken I don’t know what it is…

Pineapple Mango Salsa

This is a lovely little fresh salsa for a dip or a side, mild if you’d like or fiery if you wish. The fruity pineapple & mango are set off beautifully by the lime/vinegar combo and the result is a bright, sweet/tart flavor explosion.

Home-made Tortilla Chips

Warm, crispy, crunchy, salty, fragrant – there’s nothing like a home-made tortilla chip. Pair them with a great Salsa and the result is heavenly! You can buy chips but there is no way you’re going to get anywhere near the taste you’ll get if you just brave the mess and fry up a few of your own.

Sweet Pineapple, Mango, Habanero Sauce

We just can’t seem to get spring, here, in Minnesota. March started with below zero temperatures, warmed up to the 70’s for a day or two then dropped back down to a dismal, depressing, cold grey. Now it’s snowing. If I could only go to the Islands! Out of the question, but maybe a few Island flavors will brighten up my day, and yours. This is a Sweet Habanero Sauce. As it settles on your tongue, you’ll think “hmm, what’s all this about?” It’s pleasant and beautifully flavored and…sweet. But wait for it!

Better than Chipotle’s Fire-Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Better than Chipotle’s? Oh, yeah! But if you love Mexican food like our family does, you know that’s not much of a claim. 🙂 Yep, I said it out loud. Here’s a fantastic salsa, a blend of bright, tart tomatillos, jalapeno for a bit of bite & onion for depth, plus my Salsa secrets!
