Recipe for the Holiday Weekend!

The folks at Allens (frozen & canned veges) are sending me some free vegetables to try. I hear they have these new "steamer" items and I'm pretty psyched about trying them! They're going to be available at Kroger - so keep your eyes open for them.

Along with the free goods - they also sent me a recipe to try for the holiday weekend. It sounds really good and simple - thank God! That's the only cooking I know how to do! Where do you find chipotle pepper in adobe sauce - anybody know?

Give it a try over the weekend and let me know what you think!

Cincinnati Caviar

1 bag (12 oz.) Allens Frozen Super Sweet Kernel Corn, cooked according to package directions and chilled
⅓ cup finely diced green peppers
⅓ cup finely diced red peppers
⅓ cup finely diced red onions
1 can (15.5 oz.) Allens black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp. minced garlic
1½ cups diced tomatoes
¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 chipotle pepper in adobe sauce, finely diced

In large mixing bowl, combine corn, green peppers, red peppers, red onion, black beans, garlic, and tomatoes. In small mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over vegetables and toss to combine. Chill 1 to 2 hours before serving so flavors can combine. Serve with pita or tortilla chips.

Serves: 16


  1. Whole foods had chipotle pepper in adobo sauce last time I looked. Krogers has it too. It would be by the salsa and pickled jalapenos. It comes in a small can. What you want to do is freeze the leftovers in a little baggie. Then next time you need it you can cut off a chunk.

  2. I was gonna say at HP Kroger you would probably find it in the Mexican Aisle in a jar. mmm sounds good!
