time on your hands is rare when you have a full house. 2gether we eat is about
bringing your tribe together to enjoy a meal, even if it means preparing that
meal with one free hand and someone pulling at your leg. Not only do I hope to offer delicious, easy
to prepare recipes, but I’ll also show you how getting your kids involved in
the process can make the meal that much more rewarding for you and those eating
I was tired of making the same old tacos every week, so I
created this black bean corn salsa to jazz things up. It can be served as a side dish, enjoyed with tortilla chips
or it can replace the refried beans in your tacos and burritos.
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 ear of corn, husked and kernels cut off
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ onion, chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin powder
½ cup cilantro, chopped
2 small or 1 large tomato, chopped
Juice of ½ lime
Zest of ½ lime (optional)
1 jalapeño, chopped and seeded (optional)
Salt to taste
2 tsp Olive oil
Add olive oil to a saucepan and put on medium to high
heat. Add onion and sauté
for 3-4 minutes. In this
recipe I like to salt as I go.
Salt onions then add fresh corn, jalapeño and stir. Add beans, lime zest and season with
cumin and chili powder. Sauté for
5 minutes. Then add lime juice,
cilantro and tomato and stir.
This is very quick and easy to prepare and cook. The boys love to help husk the corn,
peal the onion, put the garlic in the press and rinse the beans. They also help add things to the pan as
well. This dish is too much for
Nolan’s pallet but Jackson loves it so much he usually asks for seconds.
