Salsa

I put salsa on EVERYTHING- chicken, eggs, salad...so why not learn how to make my own:) 

Ingredients

  • 2 large cans of diced tomatoes, drained or 4 cups of diced fresh tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped to preference
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped to preference
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • juice from either on1 lemon or 2 limes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1-3 jalepeno peppers (to taste)

Instructions

1.) Drain tomatoes in a colander in the sink while preparing the other items for the salsa. I reserve the tomato juice that drains off for soup stock or cooking rice

2.) In a food processor, place peeled garlic cloves, cilantro, jalepenos (leave in seeds for spicier salsa), and lemon or lime juice. Process until slightly chunky paste forms.

3.) In a large, non-metallic bowl, mix all ingredients well. Keep refrigerated.
