Calico Corn Salsa

This is my new favorite app book... well until I find another one I like!  I kinda have a pretty big collection (which I will share with you some day :-)

I first saw it at a Home Depot checkout and talked myself out of purchasing and didn't give it another thought. Then a couple days later I went to my friend's house for coffee and she had it sitting out, had made a couple things from it AND ironically she said she bought it at Home Depot (it's not just a man mall store!) so after flipping through, I knew I had to add it to my collection.  I'm glad I did - lots of good things to try.  My first is here - called Calico Corn Salsa

The ingredients

Limes - the main liquid ingredient

Spices are cooked in oil to infuse the flavors and then added along with some other ingredients

Combing and mixing the ingredients...this should make some Packer fans happy!

Mix and serve with tortillas chips - this was a huge hit and between 5 of us, most of it was gone before we ate dinner!!  So I'll say it was a 4+ app

Oh and this is my first official app post!
