I love trying recipes that allow you to use my frozen farmers market supplies from this summer. I usually will buy a ton of sweet corn to cook and freeze to have on hand during the winter. I also was able to use a jar of Sam’s Salsa for this recipe. With so many flavors its hard to believe that this dinner is not only healthy but completely clean as well. I reserved about two cups of the salsa mixture and set it aside to cook on the stovetop for a vegetarian version for my sister. This recipe was so easy, I had a ton of leftovers which I divided and froze for quick dinners in the future.
