It is mid August and guess what we spent a 90 degree day doing?
The day was exhausting and felt like it would never end. However, I can’t wait to enjoy my first winter squash of the season. There really is nothing like it.
For now we will stick with light summer meals.
2 ears of corn, kernels removed
1 small red onion, diced
1 poblano pepper, seeded and diced
large handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
about 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
3/4 cup of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 head of bib lettuce, rinsed
2 tsp of chili powder
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Juice of half a lime
1 tbs olive oil
In a large skillet heat the olive oil. Combine all the ingredients except the lettuce. Stir. Heat through. Drain in a fine mesh strainer after about 7 minutes. Return to pan. Scoop a couple of tablespoons of the mixture into a lettuce leaf. Fold over and enjoy!
These puppies can be messy so be prepared with lots of napkins. It’s totally worth it though. Taylor and I both ate about 5 wraps each! Also, a tequila cocktail made by your husband is an added bonus to the meal.
