as i have mentioned before, i am trying to use up the items i have lying around. tonight, i opened a jar of salsa. i really liked target's black bean and corn salsa but they discontinued it. this still has corn and black beans in it so i take what i can get. as i was cutting up the carrots for the rice, i dipped one in salsa. how come i have never tried the combo before?? i realize it's nothing quite new or original, but what i didn't realize was how delightfully simple yet scrumptious it is! YES, WIN FOR MEEEEE.i made a serving of instant white rice because i am trying to use that up as well. i microwaved it [soooo lazyy] with cajun seasoning and a few dabs of hickory liquid smoke. i didn't cook the carrots because i hate cooked carrots--just threw them in after.
this is the result: a slightly smokey, spicy, tomato-y, sweet [carrot] goodness. i will definitely use this little concoction to finish off the rest of those items.
