Sweet, crunchy, creamy, and spicy, this colorful salsa is practically an appetizer on its own.
Southwestern Sides & Salads
Corn pudding is an old-fashioned side dish that can replace rice or potatoes in a summer meal.
Sweet romaine, grape tomatoes,and corn, plus tender pinto beans and crunchy corn chips make a truly satisfying salad.
This salad is hearty enough for a meal on its own, but you could also fill it out with fresh corn kernels, chopped avocado, and roasted pumpkin seeds, or wrap it in a tortilla with other fillings for a burrito. For the quantity of chopped cilantro called for here, don’t bother separating the sprigs. Just hold the bunch by the stems and chop the leafy part.
Baked beans were meant to be doctored up to suit a cook’s taste, so feel free to make these with more or less sugar, a spicier salsa or mustard, and add-ins such as soy sausage or soy hot dogs.
