 *** Tay’s Chipotle Cranberried Bean Salsa:
1 can Pinto Beans, drained
1T canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, minced
3T Dried Semi Sweetened Cranberries (Or fresh)

1 Celery, minced small

Toss all, allow to sit some. Longer, better. Eat with Quesadillas, Tacos, on Bruschetta, as Dip, etc..

* Notes: I used Turkey and Chorizo. To cut Calories. You can use Beef with Chorizo or just Chorizo. Ours was GREAT, so leaving as is, healthier, too! Optional to add Taco Seasoning or Garlic Powder to Meat Mix. I skipped, was amazing! Or season how you wish your Taco meat to be.
