Black Bean and Corn Salad – colorful and delicious salad that’s perfect for summer gatherings! Always a party hit!
As promised, here is the recipe for the Black Bean and Corn salad that I have been using as a topping on our Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos. It’s absolutely phenomenal and really easy to throw together!
We live in Kansas and if we could, we would eat corn everyday. My kiddos are always happy to see it on the dinner table. I knew they will love this salad! It’s just another way for us to enjoy it. For me the red onion and lime juice make a fantastic flavor combo. Fresh with a zing! Love it!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos – only 5 minutes of prep is required for this easy Mexican dish! This slow cooker chicken is perfect for tacos but also burritos, taquitos and enchiladas!
Seems like these days, Mexican food is rulling my Pinterest feed. It’s tacos, enchiladas and salsas everywhere. And it makes me hungry every single time. It’s because Mexican food is our favorite, right next to barbecue.
All of this and the fact that Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and I find myself cooking Mexican food almost every other night. These chicken tacos has been on our weekly menu for the past few weeks and I’ve used the slow cooker taco meat in enchiladas, burritos and taco casseroles. It’s so easy, because all of the prep consists of throwing everything into a slow cooker and let it cook away for few hours. It’s ready by dinner time and all it needs is toppings.
Lemon Cornbread Loaf – soft and fluffy cornbread packed with lemon and baked in a loaf pan. Paired with your favorite fruit preserves it makes for a simple yet delicious treat!
I don’t think I will ever get tired of lemon desserts, breads, muffins or scones. I adore them! The recent lack of sunshine makes me striving for sunny colors and lemon seems to fill the gap. Hence the cornbread loaf.
It sort of just happened one day. I usually bake my cornbread in a skillet or in a muffin pan but that day I reached for the loaf pan and there was no turning back. It doesn’t hurt that I also have a couple of jars of my favorite preserves from this project. I am looking for more ways to enjoy it and this cornbread loaf happened to be perfect for it!
