Mexican Street Corn Salsa

11 Comments

This Salsa is using Corn on the Cob, in our stores we have some really sweet corn, and its hard to sample out an ear of corn LOL!! 😛

I was also told that Mexican Street Corn was trending 🙂

So I made it into a salsa with some other bits added, I also used a local company here in town that sells Gourmet Herbs and Spices.

We have partnered with them and we now have a great selection of some of their Herbs and Spices.

Colonel De Gourmet Herbs & Spices is the company please check them out online.

Summer is great for corn, so next time you pick some up, pick up some extra and try my recipe!!

This would be a great straight up Corn Salsa, just do not add the Sour Cream, Mayo or cheese, or heck add the cheese…LOL

Here are a few pictures and enjoy the recipe!!

This is the base mixture, corn, tomatoes, onion, cilantro & lime juice

I added the sour cream, mayo and seasonings and let set over night.

Right before serving I added the Cheese (I used Feta since our stores do not carry Cotija Cheese either works)

Now just serve with Chips!!

You either like beets or you don’t there is no in between!! 🙂

I don’t like beets…well okay maybe if they are “Amish Wedding” Pickled Baby Beets…then yes I like those 😛

But that’s it on the “Red” ones…I do on the other hand like the “Golden” beets 🙂

Golden beets are a little less sweet, more mellow and less earthy.

These chips were so easy to make and Delicious but you must keep an eye on them as they will burn very quickly!!
But I like those little burnt edges 🙂

Golden Beet Chips

Golden Beets
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Paprika

Peel and slice your beets, use a mandolin if you have one.
Place in a medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Toss to coat all the beet slices.

Arrange on a baking sheet in single layer, bake at 375 degrees, after 15 minutes you need to flip them, check that small rounds are not burning.  Continue to bake until they are crispy, about 15 minutes more.

When I first made them I baked them at 400, I would go to 375 or even 350, flipping them at 15 minutes and continue to bake until crispy.

Let them cool and Enjoy.

Enjoy!! Them 🙂

IMG_20130719_130214

What’s inside – Wow I like what I’m seeing

IMG_20130719_130506

a drink and snacks

IMG_20130719_130737

Okay so I am really liking whats in the box, I have seen some of these items around
but sometimes you don’t really want to buy somethings just in case they turn out
not so good 🙂

Okay so lets start
 
1.  Crunchmaster – http://www.crunchmaster.com/home.aspx

IMG_20130724_132848

These crackers were very very good, extremely crunchy, I thought they had a good flavor, along with everything you see on the package they are also Sugar Free, Vegan/Dairy Free, low saturated fat and Og Trans fat.

IMG_20130724_132957

These crackers are a great snack, I would totally buy them and if anyone has to eat Gluten Free I so recommend these crackers.   Check out their website (above) for other products they sell.

2.  Cosmos Creations – http://www.cosmoscreations.com/

So the front of the bag says “Heavenly Morsels of Baked Corn with all Natural Ingredients you can Pronounce”  I like this 🙂

IMG_20130724_133514

As you can see from the picture again Gluten Free, among other things, I did like these little cinnamon crunchy little puffs of goodness 🙂  I liked that the fact that I really did feel like I was eating popcorn without the Hulls or Kernels…YAY!!!

IMG_20130724_133541

These Crunchy good snacks come in 4 flavors – Cinnamon Crunch, Caramel, Sea Salt & Butter and Salted Caramel,  I’m wondering if the Sea Salt and Butter will taste like Buttered Popcorn 🙂
I hope these some in a snack pack size, because eating the whole bag could happen if you did not portion it out…so if you buy the big bag….which I do recommend this product 🙂  Scoop some out into a bowl first 😛

3.  Glaceau Fruitwater – http://www.fruitwater.com/

Okay so now I bet your thirsty by now, well I really did like this Fruitwater 😛

IMG_20130724_135859

This water was refreshing, bubbly and the flavor was not over powering, so many flavored waters the flavor is so strong and they are so sweet at least to me.  I like sparkling flavored water, but sometimes it hard to find, that’s why I really do like this one, they also have 5 flavors, Black Raspberry, Lemon-Lime, Watermelon Punch, Strawberry Kiwi and the one I had Orange Mango.  Also Zero Calories, 20% of the recommended daily value of vitamins b5 and b6, magnesium and zinc, and 50 milligrams of green tea extract.

This one is a buy for me can’t wait to pick up a few 🙂

4.  The Better Chip – Jalapeno with Sea Salt – http://www.thebetterchip.com/

IMG_20130724_133222

 

I absolutely LOVED these chips, they were very crisp and firm like, they would hold up to a thick guacamole or a cream cheese dip with out breaking.  The flavor was fantastic, spicy with just the right amount of sea salt, what I also liked about these chips was the fact you could see pieces of jalapeno.

IMG_20130724_133250

 

They come in other flavors too, Fresh Corn with Sea Salt, Spinach & Kale with Sea Salt, Sweet Onion with White Cheddar and Red Pepper with Salsa Fresca.

I totally would buy these, I think they are great just on there own or with salsa or any other dip they would be just fantastic!!!

5.  Gimbal’s – Cherry Lovers – http://www.gimbalscandy.com/

I must say when I first saw the package I was so excited because I really love Cherry flavor in anything chewy 🙂

IMG_20130724_133909

 

I opened up that package and quickly sorted them out into flavors, there are 9 flavors in this package, once sorting them all, I was not pleased….flavors and how many – Chocolate Cherry – 1, Kiwi Cherry – 2, Cherry Cheesecake – 2 or 3, Cherry Vanilla 0 or 1 (it was was to tell with color but when I tasted it, I still was not sure if it was Vanilla or Cheesecake), Cherry Daiquiri – 2, Cherry Cola – 2, Bing Cherry – 2 I think, Wild Cherry -2 I think, Black Cherry – 9.

Let me say some of these were hard to tell which was which

IMG_20130724_134435

 

All and all I thought I did get one of each flavor, but after tasting each color, I am really not sure, Bing Cherry and Wild Cherry looked very much like the same 😦

I’ll say this Gimbal’s has other candy to choose from 🙂

I just don’t think I would choose the Cherry Lovers, matter of fact I brought the rest of them with me to the office and they are still in a baggie in my desk drawer 😛  Cherry was the flavor, I just was not impressed 😦

So this months Goodie Box was 4 to 1, I think that is pretty good 🙂
Can’t wait to get August’s box!!
