Summer break is right around the corner, in our house that means it’s time to load up on lots to eat because the kids seem to be hungry every hour of every summer day – They run around, then they eat and the whole summer seems to follow that pattern.
Thank goodness we are working with Birds Eye to promote their Steamfresh Flavor Full veggies which will give you plenty of quick and good options for sides, additions or even a quick snack all by themselves.
There are 8 new flavors of Birds Eye Steamfresh Flavor Full veggies, but the one that I was most intrigued by was the Barbecue Sweet Corn. We first tried it as a side and I loved the taste of combining the sweet corn with barbecue sauce – as it steams in the microwave – the smell is just incredible, and the taste is pure summer. This would be a perfect side to any meal whether it be lunch or dinner.
However, we wanted to try a little different spin with a summertime favorite of ours. Adding the Barbecue Sweet Corn to our Black Bean & Corn Salad was an incredible choice.
This recipe is a great summer snack or it can even serve as a main course, to give ours a bit more flavor, we even added some avocado for an extra little flavor boost!
So our spin on this summer classic is pretty simple, start with a run to Meijer to pick up your Birds Eye Steamfresh Flavor Full Barbecue Sweet Corn, along with black beans, diced tomatoes and an avocado.
Let me know your thoughts about the recipe and how you will use the super cool Steamfresh Flavor Full Barbecue Sweet Corn! I am pretty certain you will enjoy it, also there are some other great Steamfresh options by Birds Eye, so next time you are at the store check them out and add them to your summer recipe list.
