Black Bean Salsa Dogs

Goes down nicely with a nice Chilean shiraz.

Alex: A disgusting treat particularly enjoyed by lovable computer programmers. Me: What is a black bean salsa dog, Alex?!

Matt has very fine taste. So exquisite ,so high brow, in fact, that he is the sole aficionado of....drum roll please.....BLACK BEAN SALSA DOGS. Matthew makes a hot dog, and instead of topping it with, say, something the hoi polloi would (you know, like mustard) he tops them with beans. He swears this is absolutely delicious and nutritious (they are turkey dogs and low cal buns). You may think this is something he concocted out of sheer desperation - like we were out of all pantry staples except for beans and hot dogs - but no, he loves them. The following is a typical instant message conversation at work (this can be any given day):

Me: What do you want for dinner?
Matt: black bean salsa dogs!!!

Me: No, really...what do you want?

Matt: black bean salsa dogs!!
Me: I'M SERIOUS. What do you want, for real?!
Matt: I told you! BLACK BEAN SALSA DOGS!!!!!!!

Please enjoy these photos of Matt eating a bean dog IN THE ACT! This is a particularly sorry sight, as he was out of 1) black beans, and 2) salsa. Sigh.


  1. Looks like a convention of blood-engorged dog ticks. Yum! Mom

  2. Now that I look at does. Ew.

  3. I have to agree with you Kathryn it's the pictures, it's not selling me. This might have to be the first "Gutsy Girl recipe" I pass up! Sorry Matt...Kate

  4. My Crohn's just cried at the mere thought of 'black bean salsa' anything. lol

  5. Yeah, it is sort of a Crohn's nightmare...from the high-fiber beans to the acidic salsa...YUM. (Full admission: I love salsa, but only eat it in very small quantities.)
