Shoepeg Salsa

by Melanie on August 11, 2008

I made 8 batches of this salsa for a dear friend’s daughters wedding reception. It was really easy to make and very tasty so I thought I would share the recipe here. It is especially great served with fritos scoops! I made this again on sunday for an after church lunch for my family. Yummy!

Any chance this was for Lindsey Pfleuger’s reception? She married my brother Kaleb and I enjoyed this salsa at a reception last week. How funny to be blog surfing and find a picture of this salsa that I loved. Thanks for sharing

YOu are absolutely right–this was for Lindsey and Kaleb’s reception!! How funny–what a small world! Wasn’t the wedding beautiful–especially the bride and groom?! And all the food was just great!

Mel- I have a very similiar recipe that uses fresh avacado and black beans instead of the fresh pepper. It is one of our favorites.

Now that I have tried this, I can say with certainty that it IS very yummy. :)

Hi Melanie,

What is shoepeg corn ?


13 Melanie Anne September 6, 2008 at 5:05 pm

Hi Bonnie,
Shoepeg corn is just a tiny corn. It comes in a can on the isle with all the other canned corn and vegtables. I think the brand i bought last time was green giant. Good luck! Another great recipe using is on theis site is Black and White bean dip. IT is a hot dip–0and seriously GREAT!!

My mom made your recipe over the holidays and it was a huge hit. It’s a great alternative to regular salsa. Love it!

I have made this multiple times and it is always a hit. It makes enough to take to a party and keep a little at home for the family :-) Love your blog. Keep up the great work!
