Grilled Corn Salsa

A great recipe to use fresh veggies from your garden!

5 ears of corn on the cob
1 bell pepper, any color
1 jalapeno
1-2 poblano peppers or another similar pepper.
1 red onion
1 lime
Olive Oil
1/2 bunch of Cilantro
Salt, to taste

Lightly oil corn and place all veggies on the grill. Turn veggies often and cook on medium high for approximately 15 min until charred. Place peppers in a brown paper sack or closed container and let steam for 15 minutes to help remove outer skin.  (Make sure you also remove the seeds) Cut corn off cobs and put in a bowl with chopped peppers, onion and cilantro. Season with squeezed lime and salt. 

Can be eaten with chips as a salsa or serve over tacos.

Garden Scrambled Omelette

One of my favorite things about gardening is finding ways to use the fresh vegetables in our cooking. Omelettes are so versatile because you can add whatever ingredients you like and the options are endless. It's also healthy and filling! 

3 eggs
2 T. milk
Shredded Cheese
Cherry Tomatoes
Bell Pepper
Jalapeno Pepper
Red Onion
Butter to sauté vegetables
Bacon, cooked and crumbled 
Salt & Pepper

Crack eggs into a bowl, add milk and whisk until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside. 
Chop all vegetables to equal approximately 1/3 cup. In a fry pan on medium heat add a little butter and sauté veggies for 1-2 minutes. Pour eggs over veggies and sprinkle with bacon and cheese. Slowly stir until eggs are cooked to desired consistency. Plate and enjoy.
