Corn and Bean Salsa...and check out a giveaway!

Are you looking for something different to serve your guests? This is a super easy and good salsa. My friend brought this to a party last Sunday and we were chowing down on it like it was our job! I got to thinking what else I could do with this and I came up with making it into a veggie burrito or loading a baked potato and fat free sour cream for a healthy meatless meal. However you choose, this is inexpensive and delicious. It is packed with fiber and good for you nutrients like potassium. Before adding your canned items, make sure you rinse them under cold water to get rid of some of the additional salt that is used in the canning process.

Corn and Bean Salsa
1 can shoepeg corn, rinsed
1 can black eyed peas, rinsed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can Old El Paso chopped green chiles
1 stalk celery, diced
1small jar chopped pimentos
1 red onion, diced

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 cup cider vinegar

Mix the first set of ingredients together in a non-reactive bowl. Heat the sugar, oil and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved. Pour over the bean mixture. Put covered in refrigerator overnight to marinate. The next day, drain the salsa and put into a bowl for serving. Frito-Lay Scoops are great for this as they help pick up all the great goodness! Ole'!!
