A Day Late and a Dollar Short...

Since today is Eat Until You Can't Even Waddle Day aka Super Bowl  and as chips and dips are main pieces of ammo in this war, with no further ado --

BLUEBERRY SALSA - This one's for you, Red...
2 cups fresh blueberries, cleaned
1/2 medium red onion, diced
2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 T chopped cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice

Coarsely chop the blueberries, add to the mix and serve.

1 16 oz. can cranberry sauce with berries
3 T honey or to taste
4 fresh jalapenos, seeded, de-ribbed and minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 T tequila - do NOT use if kids or AA persons are guests.
Mix and serve

Drain an 11 oz. can of corn and put it in a bowl
Add:  3/4 cup chopped sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced tomato
1 T chopped green onions
1 T chopped pickled jalapeno peppers
Mix and serve

3 1/2 cups drained diced pineapple
1/4 bunch cilantro leaves
1 small red onion, diced
3 jalapenos, diced
Juice of three limes
2 teas. crushed red pepper
1/2 teas. ground cumin
Mix and serve -- with cooked shrimp!

If you are a rabid supporter of either team, I hope your side wins.  For the rest of us, let's hope for an exciting game (but I've got a $50 that says it won't be.)
