What’s for Dinner? Black Bean and Corn Mexican salad & Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Meatless Monday – Mexican Salad with Black Beans and Corn née Grilled Mexican Steak Salad.

cook this mexican saladThis recipe is originally written to include grilled steak, which would be great, however we are trying to be diligent with our Meatless Monday quest and omitted the meat and added grilled corn.  The result was great and we would do this salad again!

Time: 20 minutes

Ease: Simple

Review:  The recipe is a nice one with great flavor and I feel it works well with or without the meat.  Follow the directions for this recipe omitting the directions for the meat.   Instead of steak try grilling corn or pan roasting the corn until it brown slightly and the cool. The dressing is wonderful and I can think of a lot of uses for it outside of this salad. Over all, this is a nice salad and a great new dressing recipe that I think you will enjoy.

Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Wait, wait  read on!!!  It isn’t what you think, they are just made in muffin tins!  Shew, you thought you’d have buttercream with hot wing sauce didn’t you.  Well, you could try it, but this isn’t it. buffalo chicken cupcakes Time: 40 Minutes

Ease: Average

Review:  Win!  This would be great football game food!  It was a great meal and could be served with celery and carrots or macaroni and cheese.  The way it is prepared tones down the heat for those afraid of wing sauce, in case you were worried and we really loved this. It was good cold the next day.  I know, I know but really any chicken is good cold for breakfast, that is if you don’t have cold pizza.  OK.  so much for healthy.  We did eat well the rest of the week.  It was our indulgence.
