Recipes Chef Michael Goleniak has extended his culinary reach by offering an all new My Personal Chef Black Bean and Corn Salsa. The following recipes are just a few ideas of how you can take your MPC brand salsa to the next level!

Vegetarian Burritos

  • 1 container of MPC brand black bean and corn salsa
  • 1 package of tex mex rice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 package of cheese (monterey jack, cheddar, pepper jack etc.)
  • 1- 8ct package of burrito wraps
Prepare the rice according to the box directions. When done, mix with the MPC brand black bean and corn salsa. Scoop a small amount onto burrito wrap and top with two slices of avocado and some shredded cheese. Roll to enclose the filling and place all eight into a baking dish.
Top with remaining cheese and bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes.

Blackened Tuna Over Black Bean and Corn Salsa

  • 2-4 Tuna steaks
  • Favorite blackening spice
  • 1 container of MPC brand black bean and corn salsa
Coat the fish with the blackening spice and grill or pan sear. Scoop the MPC brand black bean and corn salsa on center of a platter. Arrange the fish around it and serve.

South West Black Bean, Corn and Spicy Sausage Soup

  • 2- 15 oz. cans of black beans
  • 1- 15 oz. container of diced tomatoes
  • 1 container of MPC brand black bean and corn salsa
  • 1 lb. spicy Chicken or Pork sausage
  • 2 T. ground Cumin
  • Water
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Sour Cream
  • Tortilla chips
Remove the sausage from the casing and sauté until done. Drain the grease and add the sausage, black beans, MPC brand black bean and corn salsa, tomatoes and cumin to a soup pot. Add enough water to just reach the top and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Blend together with a stick blender or a regular blender until thick, but still chunky.

Pour into soup bowls and add a dollop of sour cream in middle and tortilla chips around edge of the soup. Serve cold to cure hot summer days, or hot to warm you up in the winter.
