1 14 oz can black beans, drained ( rinse if desired)
1 roma or medium tomato, diced
1/2 cup diced red onion

Jalapeno Cheddar Beer Bread

 

 

 

 

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X5-inch loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cayenne pepper.
Add 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese and beer and stir just until incorporated.
Pour half the melted butter into the prepared pan. Add batter. Pour remaining butter on top of batter.
Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and scatter jalapeno slices on top of the cheese.
Bake 50 to 60 minutes, until golden brown on top.
Serve warm.

 

Caipirinha

 

 

 

 

This is a popular drink in Brazil. Absolutely delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day. Some may relate it to a mojito but the absence of mint and the presence of cachaca makes it different.

1 oz cachaca ( or any dark rum)
1 lime, cut into wedges
2 heaping tsp sugar
Ice

In an old fashioned whiskey glass, muddle limes wedges and sugar together till it’s juicy. Add lime and pour cachaca over it for a great cocktail. If you are unable to find cachaca, you may use a dark rum or Capt Morgan.
