Burger Bites

I’m a week behind. Last week’s theme for Whip It Up was Appetizer’s. I just didn’t get my act together coming off of vacation, but I made Burger Bites for lunch today.  I didn’t change the recipe much. The only difference was that I used store-brand breadsticks instead of Pillsbury, so the breadsticks were portioned out a little different. So I only made 32 “buns”.

Spicy Bean Salsa

This was delicious! The original recipe is here, my modifications were made based on reviews and Chad’s request for more heat! This was the first time I bought black eyed peas!  Very yummy with baked tostito scoops!

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
