5 cups of water
1 can black beans
1 cup frozen grilled corn from Trader Joe's
2 chicken bouillions cubes

1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 cup cheddar cheese (in the soup)
1/2 red bell pepper

Salt to taste, remember the tortilla chip are salty.

Nestle Toll House Cookies

 My favorite cookie is and will always be Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie. Today I had to get my cookie fix and needed to double the recipe. Well, if I was going to share with family and friends one batch wouldn't be enough. So, I was making sure I had all the ingredients when I realized I was short 1 cup of butter, no problem I have made other cookies with shortening why not give it a try. What is the worse thing that could happen? Well, I love them! I will put this modified or should I called it Rhondified recipe in the Keeper's Pile. [slideshow]
