The last time I made this Maddie wouldn't touch it but everyone else ate it. See the SHOCKING RESULTS at the end!
I made it according to the recipe this time, I usually skip the green pepper and the green onion because Logan is a baby. It wasn't really 'better' with those additions so I'll leave them out in the future.
Here are the ingredients (plus chili powder I forgot to show):
Cut up the potatoes into 1 inch cubes, chop the green pepper and mix in a bowl together with 1/2 tsp (I use more) chili powder.
I didn't really get step by step pictures. Oops. Thaw the corn, drain the beans (I thaw the corn under the water I'm rinsing the beans in by putting them all in the same colander. I am so smart!) and chop the onion. Mix them all together.
Put the black beans and corn in the center and then arrange the potatoes and peppers around the edges.
I forgot to show you adding the salsa, just spoon it on top. I also didn't show you it in the microwave for 15-20 minutes. Mine cooked faster than even 15 minutes. Take it out put cheese on it and let it sit for a minute or 10 until your husband gets home.
THE SHOCKING RESULTS!
Logan: "You used the good salsa. Wait are these green onions? peppers? Why do you have to ruin everything." He ate it anyway and had three helpings so I guess it was fine.
Madison: "Just so you know, I don't like this. If I have one bite I get to have dessert right? I'm only trying one bite of the potatoes because I hate this. I know I do." (She then gagged as Logan put it on her plate. I LOVE THAT.) She ATE IT! She skipped the cheese and green peppers but at all the potatoes and black beans. WOOOO!
Max: "I am following Madison's lead! I don't like this either! Even though I ate it last time with enthusiasm!" He ends up eating 2 helpings with lots of spicy taco sauce on top.
Me: I like this dish. I like other things more but it's quick easy and pretty healthy if you don't eat all the cheese.
*Maddie's been eating many more things we put in front of her. I wonder if my experiment is actually working. I will keep you posted.
