I am really excited for this weeks recipes I'll be posting! I have a lot of tasty stuff in store for you all! : ) To start things off, I wanted to share with you this fantastic recipe for salsa. This deliciousness comes from the great Ree Drummond. This was my first try at homemade salsa. It was too simple, and sooo good!
I will never go back to buying salsa in a bottle from the store. Okay, maybe I will every now and then, but I will definitley try to make it this way first. From start to finish, it only took 15 minutes tops, and that's because I'm slow at chopping veggies...
Recipe adapted from: Pioneer Woman
- 1 can (28 oz) Diced Tomatoes, drained
- 2 cans (10 oz) Rotel (diced tomatoes w green chilies), drained
- 1/2 cup Onion, chopped
- 1 clove Garlic, minced
- 1 whole Jalapeno (remove seeds), chopped
- 1/2 tsp Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
- 1/2 cup Cilantro
- juice from 1/2 a Lime
Directions: Chop the garlic, onion and jalapeno. Pour the canned tomatoes, rotel, onion, garlic, jalapeno, sugar, salt, cumin, cilantro and lime juice in a blender OR a food processor. Pulse about 9-11 times, depending on how chunky you like your salsa. Pour into a bowl. Let sit in the refrigerator for atleast an hour ( the longer it sits the better) to chill and let all the flavors blend together. Serve with tortilla chips. This salsa will stay good covered in a refrigerator for 3-4 days.
*NOTE: This is a large batch. Depending on the size of your blender or food processor, you may have to do this in two batches.
