Sorry this is a few days late, but I did part of that on purpose. Friday was food day at work for our July Birthday. So I wanted to share with you everything I made. I made three things Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Edamame Hummus, and a Weight Watchers approved cake.
First Black Bean and Corn Salsa. This is one of my favorite things! I found this recipe a few years ago when I did a Google search for black bean salsa, I don’t really remember what website I found it from and I have made is so much I can remember the recipe by heart.
1 Can Rotel Tomatoes drained’
1 Can Corn (I think summer crisp corn works the best) drained
1 Can Black Beans rinsed and drained
1/2 to 1 red onion (depending on the size of the onion)
Juice of 1 lime
A little cilantro for taste
Mix everything together and let sit at least over night.
Second Edamame Hummus. I found this recipe in an e-book I purchased not too long ago titled “50 Delicious Snacks That Won’t Wreck Your Diet”. I’m not a big fan of hummus so this was a nice alternative to original hummus.
2 cups Edamame Boiled for at lest three minutes
About 6 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2-3 Cloves Crushed Garlic
A Dash of Salt
A little Paprika for taste
A little Cayenne Pepper for taste
Put everything in a food processor and combine until smoothly blended and has the hummus texture.
Third Weight Watchers Approved Cake. I found this recipe by doing a Google search and there were many different websites with the same recipe so I’m not real sure which one I got it off of.
1 Cake Mix Any Flavor (I used Devil’s Food)
12 oz. Diet Soda Any Flavor (I used Diet Cherry)
Mix cake mix and soda together and bake like directions say. I put cool whip out with my cake but it was just as good with nothing at all.
