I really miss chips and salsa. I typically don’t allow myself near the chips… but I do eat salsa.
After seeing this recipe “pinned” on Pinterest a million times, I decided to try what all the pinners have deemed to be an easy recipe that’s just like restaurant salsa. Well, they were right… it’s so good! And, EASY.
When you’re making salsa, it’s not like you REALLY want to chop up a million vegetables. No one does. This one requires some rough chops, but that’s it. You can do this.
From Mountain Mama Cooks
1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1- 10 oz can orginal Rotel
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends on how spicy you like it)
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro, washed
juice of 1 lime
1. Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender.
2. Pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency.
3. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste.
I’ve made a few recipes this week that I’ll share with you guys next week that this salsa was perfect with. How about Weight Watchers Beer Braised Pulled Pork Tacos and Spinach-Avocado Quesadillas? Both were delish with this salsa on the side. I may have also eaten a small bowl of it with a spoon. YUM!
If you’re eating jarred salsa…. you HAVE to try this. You’ll be blown away. Thanks again, Pinterest.
