Santa Fe Salsa

Sunday, January 31, 2010
I love this idea. I will definitely be coming here for ideas when I am looking for something tasty and new to eat.

I'll contribute one of my very favorite salsa recipes. It comes from one of my very favorite Aunts :) This is so simple to make, and it is quite healthy (we have some in our fridge right now). But, it makes a LOT! It's really the perfect salsa for a party, but you will need a big bowl for it - I'm talking really big.

Susan's Salsa

2 bunches green onions, sliced
(Optional) 2 small avocados sliced into thin pieces (I usually cut it while it is in the skin, and I cut in horizontally and then vertically with small cuts - with the vinegar and juice in this recipe, the avocados stay green for a very long time.)
1/2 red pepper
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed well
1 can black-eye peas, drained (I also usually rinse these)
1 can corn
2 cans Ro-Tel (chopped tomatoes & chilies - I use one original and one hot, but do whatever mix you'd like)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/8 cup vinegar
chopped cilantro (a handful)
juice of one lime

Mix well and refrigerate. YUM!

So, I hope you enjoy it. There isn't any salt in it, but I've found that the salt from whatever chips you serve it with is enough.

We are doing well here in Virginia. This winter has been great! We've gotten 26 inches of snow so far (20 of that was in one day...) We're also expecting our first baby in September. We're super excited. Seriously loving this idea! I'm so excited to be a part of this!

Amelia just wanted to say that there are two great days in September....September 11 (my birthday) and September 25 (Brenden's birthday). Baby Poll can be born on either two of those days. We'd be happy to share them :).
