Southwest Salsa Recipe with Hunts Diced Tomatoes #HuntsFreshTwists #Ad

A favorite summer recipe of mine is southwest salsa. It’s great with chips, soft tortillas, eggs, chicken – the list goes on. Its a blend of beans, corn & tomatoes that conjure up one of the healthiest tasty treats I know. I love it because all you need is a few ingredients and you can put together a fresh-mex snack in  no time flat.

Every couple of grocery trips, I like to stock up on canned tomatoes because I use them in so many of my recipes. I noticed that Hunts Diced Tomatoes came in so many new flavor varieties that I had to give it a try. Here’s a walmart coupon for you to use – Buy 3 Hunts Diced Tomatoes and get one free.

I thought that the fire roasted diced tomatoes would have made the best fit for my southwest salsa recipe. I picked up 2 cans, along with 1 can of black beans and 1 can of corn nibblets.

Here’s the full list of all the ingredients:

  • 2 cans of hunts diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted)
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of corn nibblets
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper
  • 1 sweet orange pepper
  • 1 small onion, diced
  •  1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt

I started by chopping all my veggies and setting them aside in a large bowl. Then with a colander I drained and rinsed both the can of corn and black beans and combined it with the chopped veggies. Then finally, I opened both cans of Hunts Diced Tomatoes and added them to the mix without draining them. Season and add the cilantro and a couple of tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice and its ready to eat!

On its own, this is perfect to serve with some tortilla chips, but you can also take it a step further and dress up your food with it! I served my potato and egg fritata topped with this southwest salsa and it was amazing!

Sending birthday wishes for less with Hallmark Value Cards from Walmart

Sending birthday wishes for less with Hallmark Value Cards from Walmart #SendSmiles #AD

I’ll make a small confession.. One of the things I have a great deal of difficulty with is shopping for greeting cards. Whether it’s a birthday or something else, I agonize over the card’s written content. For me, it’s all about finding the card that says all the right things that I would like to express to my recipient.

Cards can be expensive too – Don’t get me wrong, I love the big splashy, glittery cards that sing to you  but I’d rather spend that extra money I’m putting out for a better gift or some fun whimsical wrapping paper & ribbons. This is why the first place I look for greeting cards is the Hallmark Value Cards section at Walmart.

Hallmark Value Cards have something for everyone – mom, dad, sister, brother and even kids birthdays! With the amount of kid’s birthdays we get invited to within the school year, it makes it affordable to purchase a nice gift plus a thoughtful card. This works out perfectly simce the month of May is filled with birthdays in our family, starting with both my father and father-in-law.

I decided to load up on a stash of cards so I don’t forget to buy one when a birthday comes around. With a price of 49 cents or 79 cents anyone can afford it!

I got 2 kid’s birthday ones – boy and girl, 2 birthday wishes that can be given to anyone

Rock your BBQ party with southern style baked beans and Petit Jean Meats Bacon

A big thank you to Petit Jean Meats for providing the ingredients to make this fine dish!

Southern Style Baked Beans

Summer grilling season has to be about my favorite time of year because in our house, the kitchen moves outside for a few months. After being inside all winter, its refreshing to be outside working the grill while I watch JP play on his swing set! Our summer dinners are filled with grilled meats, veggies and mouthwatering sides that can be prepared for indoor cooking. Whenever we have company and grill out, I love to make my southern style baked beans to accompany our main course because its full of flavor and insanely easy to make.

I received a big goody box filled wit bacon & sausages courtesy of one of my favorite meat manufacturers – Petit Jean Meats. Known for a quality that’s a cut above the rest makes it one of my favorite meats to use in my recipes. Southern Style Baked Beans just seemed perfect to use my PJM bacon with! They generously sent me 3 packages – 2 classic thick cut slabs and one Dallas cowboy brand.

Southern Style Baked Beans

Here’s what you’ll need:

Prep time: 20 min Cook time: 1h 30min Yield: 6-8 servings

  • 2 cans of pork n beans
  • 5 or 6 strips of uncooked bacon
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup molasses

Star by cutting up the pepper and the onions and set them aside. Cut the bacon strips into small bite-size pieces and throw them in a hot skillet to cook. Cook them until they have some color and are rubbery in texture.

I couldn’t resist cooking up some full bacon strips too because they go great beef sliders!

Once you are done cooking the bacon, don’t drain that fat just yet!! This is where I add my diced onions, bell peppers and garlic to the hot fat and cook them up (about 2 min) before I simmer them with the beans. When they are done, scoop them out and drain them.

In a bowl, combine the 2 cans of pork and beans, the sauteed veggies, brown sugar, molasses, ketchup, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Once it is well mixed up together, I smoothed it out into a baking dish and topped it off with my bits of bacon.

Southern Style Baked Beans

Bake for about 1 hour at 325F. You will not be sorry!
