Okay so I am trying to think of new ways to get my face out there in the world…yikes 😉

So I started to make videos, some will be product tests and some will be recipes.

This is just in the beginning stages, I only have a iPhone and my computer, but I am trying to make them better and better, sometimes I just laugh at myself when I watch them back :p LOL

But you have to start somewhere right, I will get better and its okay if you laugh I will not mind 😛

So here is the first one I did so check out I hope you enjoy it!!

FYI – I have already changed few things from this first video like I said it is a work in progress 🙂

1/4- 1/2 tsp. hot paprika

In a food processor add garlic and pulse a few times, then add beans and seasonings, pulse again and add oil and pulse until mixture is smooth.

Then serve with chips or veggies, you can also add spread on tortilla for a wrap.

Red Pepper and Corn Saute`

Leave a comment

2 tbsp. butter
4 ears of fresh corn, kernels shaved from the cob (about 3 cups, or frozen)
2 large shallots, diced or 1 small sweet onion
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 tsp. sugar
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add shallots, cook for 2 minutes, then add corn, red pepper, sugar, salt and pepper.  Cook stirring occasionally to prevent burning, until the corn is slightly caramelized, about 6-7 minutes, then add cliantro.

This can be served as a side dish, served over slice flank steak (recipe for steak will becoming along with cilantro lime cream sauce, the saute with the steak and cream sauce on top is delicious).  You can also serve this in tacos or wraps as well with fresh grilled chicken.  Place sliced chicken in a nice piece of boston or butter lettuce top with the saute and some fresh avocado, makes a great light summer dish.  This is also great served cold over a nice summer salad…Enjoy!!
