    "It" dip

    Here's one dip that everybody should try just once. Many folks I know would swear that it wouldn't be the last time you tried it! It's a healthy dip that tastes so good, you will swear that it's very, very unhealthy for you. Basically, this recipe defies all logic that healthy food can't taste good to those who may be used to not eating healthy. I will say this.... at a recent GTG, there were about 6 or 7 dips on one table for chips. The first one to disappear was this dip and nobody was thinking that it was "healthy". They scarfed it down just because of the taste. I do not know where we stumbled upon this recipe so unfortunately I do not know the official name. I do recall one person at the GTG saying that this dip was "it", though. Hence the name.

    15.5 ounce can of black beans
    9 ounces of canned or frozen corn
    1 large tomato, chopped
    2 ripe avocados [med to large]
    1 lime [juices only]
    3 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp cilantro
    salt and ground pepper

    Combine everything into one bowl, stir until everything is well mixed and refrigerate for 1/2 an hour or more. Don't worry if there are avocado chunks still in the mix, this doesn't need to become like a soup. Sometimes, I'll mix up a little bit after crushing only part of the avocados just so that there are chunks leftover in the mix. Serve with chips and enjoy. The texture and flavors are simply superb.

    Question... for the "It" dip. Are the beans drained or do you use the liquid in the can too?

    Hello, Carol. We have always drained the beans for that recipe. The only liquids you want introduced are from the tomato, lime and olive oil. Enjoy!

    Tom's Sesame Seed Chicken Wings

    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/3 cup water
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons sesame, olive or peanut oil (I prefer peanut oil)
    4 green onions with tops, finely sliced
    1/2 medium onion, finely sliced
    4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
    2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    Dash of pepper
    2 1/2 lbs. chicken wings

    1 - Take a med. to lg. mixing bowl and combine all of the ingredients except for the wings, mix well.

    2 - Add washed and dry patted wings, mixing well

    3 - pour everything into a gallon ziplock bag and marinade in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours (or overnight), turning occasionally. Allow chicken to get to room temperature (20-30 min.)

    Or you can use the preferred method for step #3....

    3 preferred - If you have a food Vac/sealer, pour everything into a bag big enough, vacuum and seal. It'll be ready in 30-40 minutes. Do not refrigerate with this method!

    4 - Preheat oven at least 30 min. before placing wings in the oven @ 380 degrees

    5 - Discard marinade and place wings on a large cookie sheet or baking pan covered with parchment paper, skin side up.

    6 - Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 380 degrees. Turn, bake at 395 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn, bake for 6 to 7 minutes at 425 degrees and enjoy the hell out of 'em!

    If done right, the chicken will literally fall off the bone and your taste buds will explode.

    Please note that the cooking times are for MY stove. As you know, all stoves vary so play with it and adjust accordingly. The end result should be to die for.

    Tom's Kickin' Cornbread recipe

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees

    Put 1/2 cup oil into a cast iron skillet (8 or 10" skillet will do). Preheat on top of stove med-low or until it starts lightly smoking

    Mix 1 1/2 cup Buttermilk cornmeal mix with 2 eggs as best you can in large metal or oven safe bowl

    Add approx 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup buttermilk until the mixture is still somewhat thick and gooey

    Add extremely HOT water until the texture resembles that of pancake batter (little bit at a time - up to 3/4 cup)

    Add the hot, preheated oil from the skillet and stir it in well. It will sizzle

    Sprinkle a little bit of cornmeal mix on the bottom of the skillet and pour in mixture...it should sizzle when it hits the pan

    Bake until brown and crispy on the edges

    NOTE: Feel free to add a touch of honey and jalapeno or whatever else you normally add to your cornbread....just don't let that additions overtake the immense corn flavor of the recipe. Enjoy.
