Mad Cowboy Salsa

(Created especially for Howard Lyman on the occasion of his coming to the Hudson Valley to support Catskill Animal Sanctuary and the Mid-Hudson Vegetarian Society with a talk after the showing of Peaceable Kingdom on June 19. 2004 at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck, NY.)

This salsa was served at the reception following the event. Here is the recipe - yes you can try this at home. It is very vegan and tasty too.

1/2 medium red onion, chopped fine

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup red pepper, chopped fine

1 cup diced tomatoes (fresh in season or canned when good ripe tomatoes are not available)

1 cup black beans, if using canned, drain partially (save liquid for a soup or sauce)

1/2 cup corn kernels, fresh, frozen or canned

I Tablespoon chipolte peppers in adobo sauce - www.chiletoday.com (available at Rhinebeck Health Foods)

2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon each, sea salt, chili powder, Frontier Mexican seasoning (an organic seasoning available at health food stores and Stop and Shop)

2 Tablespoons finely sliced green onion tops

Place chopped onion, garlic and red pepper in bowl - add tomatoes, beans and corn, Mix with fork. If it seems too "soupy" pour off some of the liquid, save for another use. Add chipolte pepper (remove the seeds for a milder taste) and vinegar. Mix again. Add the seasonings and stir in well, You may wish to add more chilies or other seasonings.

Serve with corn chips. Organic blue corn chips are a nice contrast, or try blue, red and the traditional yellow for a festive look. I recommend using organic ingredients.
