Bean Salsa

Yesterday was my nephew's baptism. A wonderful family event, followed by a BBQ at my BIL's house.
I brought fresh Bean Salsa.

1 (15 oz.) can black beans
1 (15 oz.) can black eyed peas *I used red beans
1 (11 oz.) can white corn *I used frozen white corn
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/4 medium red onion
1/2 C. bottled Italian dressing
Thoroughly drain beans and corn. In a large bowl combine all ingredients.
Serve with tortilla chips.

I marinated the salsa overnight, and took directly from the refrigerator and placed in my Cooler/ Cooker bag.

I placed the lid on top and put the bag in the back seat of our car.
It sat for over 2 hours before I brought the salsa out for the luncheon.
The dish was still as cold as when I placed it in the bag.
I love these bags! Just perfect for when you want to take food to a gathering.
*For more information on the Cooler/ Cooker bags see post 7/16/2010

This is my cute nephew Jacob who was just baptised.
We are proud of you Jacob!

Mmmm... love bean salsa! But one question... where are the jalapenos? Love them for a little spice. What a cute boy! Congratulations, Jacobs!

I love bean salsa. Love it. Do you ever put cilantro in it? Must try your recipe as I have found from previous posts and things I have made from them that you have the most delicious recipes!

I have been following your blog for months. It has been so fun to see you there. I read your words and can hear your voice! I would love the actual pattern for the cooler bags. Where can I get it? from a voice in your past....Juli Stubbs
