Get In The Drecipe!

Anybody remember Susan Powter of "Stop the Insanity" infomercial fame?

Her Black Bean Salad is one of my favorites, quick, easy, no culinary skills required dishes.

I dub this a "Get in the Drecipe"
Get it?...Dress-i-pee

Susan Powter's Black Bean Salad
1 16oz can black beans (or dried beans cooked and seasoned) *I rinse my canned beans
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped red onion (I leave out the onion)
1/4 cup picante sauce (I sub Newman's Own Garden Salsa which is one of the lowest sodium prepared salsas I can find on my supermarket shelf)
2 tablespoons no-oil Italian dressing (I use Non Fat Italian)

In it's original state:
Serves 4

Mix it all up in a container and store it in the fridge. That's it!

I've topped garden salads with it. I've used it cold inside a whole wheat tortilla with shredded lettuce and diced tomato to make a lunch time wrapper. I've heated it up and added a smidge of mexican cheese and set it up in flour tortillas for a hot dinner. I've even used up a couple left over chicken strips by chopping them up and adding it. Susan says you can even heat the original recipe and eat it like a chunky soup.

Tonight, I'm actually having black beans with chick peas and corn in a recipe my Mom nabbed from a TV show. It is soooo delish! I'll have her write it down and share it with you sometime.

If you have a fav Get In The Drecipe, please share!
