It's a fiesta!

First off, if you haven't already go sign up for the jam exchange!!! Ok now onto other chow news...

Fiesta Dip is the best thing ever, no really it is. I love the stuff and find myself making it for John and I even when there is no party in site! It's so simple, chop up some things mix it up and let it marinate over night. You can drain it and serve it as a dip, or you can leave it in its sauces and use it like a very chunky salad dressing :) That's what I've got for you today.

Fiesta Dip over baby spinach leaves. Perfect! Actually if you ask John he'll say "umm where's the protein??" so in his case this is more of a side to a turkey burger or something. I say the beans are protein... but he doesn't' agree they are ENOUGH protein. silly man.

Fiesta Dip
1 can black eyed peas
1 can shoe peg corn
1 red pepper diced
1 green pepper diced (John doesn't like green so I use orange...)
1 red onion diced

Rinse and drain beans and corn

Add: 2 tbs Tiger Sauce (secret ingredient) a MUST (it's near the ketchup in Wegmans... if you have Wegmans near you)
3/4 cup white sugar (I use 1/2 cup splenda)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 veg oil (I used about 3 Tbs instead)

Mix and let stand overnight.

Drain liquid before serving with tostito scoops or other veggies or cucumber slices for dipping. Or don't drain it and serve over spinach leaves like I did above!

I love this stuff and I don't know why I never make it. Thanks for the reminder, Steph. You're right its yummy and versatile!

What is this Tiger Sauce of which you speak? That sounds quite intriguing.

Diva tell me about it, it's addicting!

Duo Dishes, it's an asian kinda spicy condiment. You can find it near the ketchup in our food store here. It has a big tiger on the bottle (hard to miss LOL)

This looks so yummy, I make something similar and it eat "straight up", no lettuce. And this looks like a lot of protein to me!

Delicious! I'm intrigued by the Tiger Sauce!

Hmm... This Tiger Sauce is making me curious. We don't have Wegmans here. I wonder if this can be found in any other asian store...
