because i do but sometimes i don't.
well. i found this recipe where it is a major do!! so yummy. and healthy too.
it's from the super scrumptious nate berkus and his show, by maria menounos.
introducing her black bean and mango salsa:
1 ripe mango, diced
1/2 cup italian dressing
2 cans of black beans (rinsed)
1/2 cup diced red onions
1 green pepper and 1 red pepper, diced (i subbed 1 orange for the green cause i like em better)
salt and pepper to taste
-in food processor (i used the magic bullet) blend the dressing and 1/4 cup of the mangos until smooth
-combine everything with the mango puree
-season with salt and pepper, chill and serve.
i eat it by the spoonful, quite literally, and with tortilla chips. yum.
do you also like chocolate? me too.
here's a recipe i just found that i can't wait to try this holiday weekend...
2 tbsp. cornstarch
2.5 tsp. cinnamon
1.5 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups skim milk
4 oz. milk chocolate
3 oz. dark chocolate
2 tsp. vanilla
-mix cornstarch, cinnamon, chili powder and salt in a sauce pan. over medium heat whisk in milk (breaking up clumps).
-cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens, approx. 12 minutes
-lower heat and stir in chocolate until melted
-remove from heat and add vanilla
-let cool 5 minutes
-whisk again, then pour into popsicle molds
-freeze for 6 hours and devour (i'm sure i will)
i bet you could use regular jello chocolate pudding. who knows, i might try it the scratch way first, then get lazy and use the kind from a box there on after :)
