Cornbread Salad

Mmmm....this is the dish I make for pretty much every pot luck I go to. The recipe is super easy and the results are perfect.

1 ea. large Red, Orange, Yellow bell peppers
5 stalks of green onions
2 boxes Jiffy Cornbread mix
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 can black beans (rinsed, strained & towel pat dried)
2 large tomatoes
Shredded cheese (your choice) but I like cheddar or pepper jack
2 large tub of sour cream
1 bottle of ranch salad dressing

Now, cook cornbread as per directions then cool.
Combine ranch dressing & sour cream set aside.
Dice all of your veggies.
When the corn bread is cool, layer first about 1/3 of the cornbread you prepared then spread a thin layer of the ranch/sour cream mix in a clear glass bowl (for presentation). Be careful not to clump it with the cornbread. Then layer each of the remaining ingredients as you can see below. Layer everything twice. Then top with a little more cornbread, & cheese any any remaining ingredients.

Gorgeous colors, right?
This is part of my healthy eating inspiration. :)

Inspired By Fajitas

I couldn't resist the cravings for fajitas - so I made chicken fajitas this weekend. Aren't those veggies just beautiful!?
I used one each, onion, yellow, green & red bell peppers. Sauteed them in butter. In another pan I pan fried about 1.5lbs of cubed chicken breast. I didnt have fajita mix so I used taco mix! Still yummy. When both pans of food are cooked (veggies until soft & chicken until done through) combine them into one dish and serve on corn or flour tortillas. Of course, you can add the the goodies like sour cream guacamole, salsa, cheese or whatever you like!
Try it. It's yummy!
The beautiful colors of the peppers inspired me to be happy! :) I'll take that!
