SouthWestern Salsa

I saw this recipe on the Crisco Canola Oil bottle and thought it looked delicious and easy to make.
You could serve it with corn chips as an appetizer  

I have another recipe on this blog that is very similar called Aztec Salad that you can find here.   I prefer the dressing found on the Aztec Salad recicpe over the one that is shown above.  You can be the judge.

Homemade Carmel Corn

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup white  Karo syrup

Boil and cook until soft ball stage.  (Drop a little of the mixture into a cup of cold water and when it is a soft ball, it is done).

1 cube butter - let melt in hot mixture
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed milk (can use another brand)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Stir and then pour over  large bowl of popcorn.

While we were visiting Janelle and David in Idaho, David made up this Anderson family recipe for us.  Scott and Sam loved it, so I got the recipe to post.  You can be sure this will be a Magnusson family favorite.  Thanks Andersons! (If you have never experienced boiling something to the softball stage, I would reccoment getting a candy thermometer to help you figure out the right temperature for the soft ball stage.)
