Today I’m ganna share my staple each week. Weird to think it’s salsa, huh? But seriously this stuff is so delicious whether you want to throw it on some eggs, top a quesadilla, or eat it with some tortilla chips! It’s super easy to make and a great alternative to store bought salsa. I’ve been on a semi health kick lately so I feel it’s important to try to eat the freshest ingredients. I also so say semi health kick because let’s face it, occasionally I’ll pig out on whatever the heck I’m craving (usually a creamy pasta or a margarita the size of my head). Moving on… Here is what you’ll need:
- 2 Cans Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
- 1 Medium White Onion
- Green Onions (I used all of them pictured)
- 2-3 Cloves of Garlic
- 1 Jalapeño or hotter pepper if you like more a kick
- Bunch of Cilantro
- Salt and Pepper
The execution is super easy too. I blend the two cans of tomato with the jalapeño, 1/2 white onion, garlic, and cilantro. Only do a few pulses otherwise it gets too bubbly. I like a little chunk to my salsa so I’ll cut the green onion and the remainder of the white onion and mix it in with the blended portion. Add salt and pepper to taste and you are DUNZO! I also like to let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours to let it cool and kind of marinate with the flavor. Mmm Mmm Good.
On a different note our bathroom is chugging along! Here is a picture of me and my lil man helping Travy with plumbing and electrical. And by helping I mean sitting on our butts browsing Pinterest. 😉
Stay tuned for our dining room reveal. It’s coming soon!
