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 you....it 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!
