Taco Salad

This is the perfect salad for using up leftovers!  And it’s easily adjusted to your tastes.  If you like your salad meatier, by all means, add more hamburger meat.  If you like more cheese or dressing or any of the other ingredients, then add them!!

Taco Salad

  • 1 bag of mixed salad greens
  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 c cooked taco seasoned hamburger meat
  • 2/3 c shredded colby cheese
  • 2/3 c Cowboy Caviar (I didn’t get enough of this stuff when I made it a couple of weeks ago, so I made it up again today)
  • 1/3 c Catalina salad dressing
  • coarsely broken up tortilla chips or corn chips

Dump all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well, making sure the dressing covers all the salad.  Top with crushed chips.

My sister, Katrina, is due this Saturday with her 3rd baby girl :0)  Her first baby girl’s birthday is Friday…soooo, we all celebrated last weekend.  She’s gonna be the big 4!!  I brought the sides for the rain-soaked barbeque we had to go along with the Curious George birthday party.  This is one of the awesomely yummy things I made.  I LOVE making easy stuff that tastes so stinkin’ extravagant!  Serve it with some tortilla chips and you’re set to go!!

Cowpa’s Caviar

  • 1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15oz can corn, drained
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 c chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp Zesty Italian dressing
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • small handful cilantro, chopped
  • dash or two of hot sauce

Dump all of the ingredients into a medium bowl and stir well. Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours before serving (if you can wait that long!!)  The longer it sets the better it gets.

(just as a disclaimer….this is not my picture.  I found it on Google.  We ate what I made before I could get a snapshot of it!)

Corn on the Cob

Do you have corn in your garden this year?  I don’t…remember this?  However, Mike picked some up at Smith’s Market downtown, and we had some for dinner….and boy was it yummy!

Corn on the Cob

  • ears of corn, shucked & cleaned
  • water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • butter, to taste
  • House Seasoning, to taste

In a large pot,  add  the sugar to water and bring to a boil.  Drop in ears of corn and cook for about 3-5 minutes.  Put butter in a flat baking dish.  Remove corn from water and place on top of butter.  Roll each ear in the butter and then season with House Seasoning.
