March Madness is here! It is one of my favorite times of the year! Kroger recently sent me a fun box of their favorite goodies with some essentials for game day to get ready for March Madness! I unboxed it on Facebook in case you didn’t get a chance to see it. They included a variety of Private Selection, Kroger Brand and Simple Truth products. With products like black beans, salsa, blue corn tortilla chips, diced tomatoes with green chiles, diced jalapenos and more!
You may not be familiar with the Kroger family of brands. We use them often and wanted to share with you that Kroger has hundreds of different products, of which you might not be aware. Check out this simple appetizer recipe for Bean Salsa or as some people call it, Cowboy Caviar that I made using some of the products they included.
This is probably my favorite appetizer for game day. I love how simple it is to make however most people can’t tell that it is made with canned ingredients. I think the fresh cilantro really gives it a great flavor too! I like to serve it with Kroger Brand Blue Corn Tortilla Chips. I am planning to enjoy this while I watch Kentucky play! Go Big Blue!
I also like to take this recipe to a cookout or picnic, there is no worry for refrigeration like other salads made with mayonnaise so it is great alternative to take when you go to a potluck. I hope you enjoy this Bean Salsa…aka Cowboy Caviar as much as I do.
