Best Salsa EVAH

I have had a 20 year obsession with salsa.  I love it, which is kind of weird because I hate tomatoes unless they're cooked.  Anyway, I remember when my sister was having her first boy/girl party - I am pretty sure it was her 12th or 13th birthday.  I insisted that I could make salsa for the party.  My mom bought a bunch of tomatoes and onions, etc. and I mixed and tested and mixed and tested, etc.  Of course, this was before the internet so I was just winging it.  Let me tell was awful!  She never let me try to make it again, which was probably a good thing. 

Anyway, back to salsa.  So, just because I have adopted a new healthy lifestyle does NOT mean that I don't occasionally splurge on the good stuff.  Salsa is all veggies, right?  It's made of the good stuff.  It's the stuff you eat it WITH that isn't always so healthy.  BUT, I love it on Chicken Fajitas so that's the way I eat it most of the time.  YUM! 

We have several teachers at work with great salsa recipes, but this one is THE BEST I have ever eaten.  My friend Brenda at work gave me the recipe and now I'm sharing it with you.  I LOVE it!

Best Salsa EVAH!

28 oz. diced tomato
15 oz. diced tomato w/ sweet onion (Locally, I get it at Harp's)
1 can Mexican Rotel (w/lime and cilantro)
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 fresh jalepeno
about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
salt and lime juice to taste

Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend.  It is better if you blend and then refrigerate for at least an hour.  So good!  It will keep about a week in the fridge, or so I've heard.  Mine never lasts that long. 

That was so easy, right?  Hope y'all love it as much as I do!



  1. It sounds good, and it's great to see a post from you! How is the healthy adventure going? I'll bet you look maaaaavelous!

  2. Girl...that sounds so yummy! I just might have to fix up a big bowl of it to watch the Razorbacks play this weekend! WPS!!!
