Black Bean Super Bowl Salsa with Tortilla Crisps

1 Comment 01 January 2011

Salsa means “sauce” in Spanish and it is usually a condiment made from tomatoes, onion,garlic, cilantro, salt and hot peppers, with a touch of vinegar or lemon juice for acidity. The mixture is usually chopped and served fresh with tortilla chips.

Salsa has tons of vitamin C, plus, it is low in carbohydrates, fat and cholesterol. On average, a serving of salsa has about 15 calories — certainly better than your average mayonaisse based dip.

This recipe has been renamed by family members as SUPER BOWL SALSA-!

Add it to your menu for next Sunday February 6, 2011 for all the football fans that will gather by

the screen!!!

Serve with chicken or fish any night of the week,or as a healthy  snack if your kids and their friends come over to hang out.

Check out the video above from EHOW.com. The tomatoes are cooked, and corn and cumin are added. Obviously, salsa has a lot of variations so you can go with the flow, experiment, and let us know which version your family like best!

Easy Hot Chocolate From Scratch. Four Recipes. You Choose!

1 Comment 28 December 2010

Thank you Shirley C. Mamiye, Esther Serouya, Esther Mosseri. and Jacqueline Kapetas for sharing your heartwarming hot cocoa recipes on this bone chilling day. Marlene M.

Hot Cocoa Recipe #1:

Delightful Hot Chocolate:

Hi, it’s Shirley from Homebaked with a recipe for all those in need of a heartwarming, satisfying treat. Here’s an easy recipe for rich, creamy homemade hot chocolate. You can use any kind of chocolate you desire – bittersweet, semisweet, milk, white… or try mixing a few! Add peppermint extract into white chocolate cocoa for warm, wintery flavors, swirl in a few flakes of sea salt and homemade caramel into milk chocolate for a toffee spin, or a cinnamon stick and some vanilla for a delicious spiced hot cocoa. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little kick. Top your creation with freshly whipped cream, toasted marshmallows, candy cane, or some more shaved chocolate.

makes one large or two small portions:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk (any fat content you like)
  • 6 heaping tablespoons chocolate chips

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, gently heat milk over low heat.  Whisk often so the milk doesn’t burn.
  2. While the milk is heating, bring a medium saucepan with two inches of water to a boil. Place a heat-proof bowl with chocolate pieces over the simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the simmering water. You’re creating a double boiler. Stir the chocolate pieces until melted.
  3. Add the melted chocolate to the hot milk. Whisk together until completely blended and add your favorite mix-ins. Pour into mugs and top with whatever you fancy.

Hot Cocoa Recipe #3:

by Jacqueline Kapetas

Hi Marlene, I saw your Facebook status asking us for a hot cocoa recipe from scratch. My friend Sophia Cohen found this on allrecipes.com. I’ve also made it parve with rice dream or soy milk.

Ingredients  •  1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder •  3/4 cup white sugar •  1 pinch salt •  1/3 cup boiling water •  3 1/2 cups milk •  3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract •  1/2 cup half-and-half cream

Its yum!

Directions  1.  Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.
