I have to admit, up until now I had NEVER, ever made my own salsa. I've always settled for the kind you buy at the store, although I have yet to come across any certain brand that I just love. they're all so-so.
of course, it's always a treat to enjoy someone else's homemade salsa. but I figured it was too much chopping, dicing and slicing for my taste. blah. I like fast and easy.
that WAS until I discovered this recipe by The Pioneer Woman. (this lady is just plain amazing, anyway.) and the clincher was when she said she made it in 2 minutes and 36 seconds flat. oh yeah.
here is the line-up:
I know, it calls for tomatoes in a can. but I don't garden or want to spend the afternoon peeling fresh tomatoes. so, throw all these in a food processor or blender:
lastly, serve it up and ENJOY! your guests will be oohing and ahhing! (and no one will need to know that you did it in under 5 minutes.)
p.s. I also tried P.W.'s white chicken enchiladas (to go along with the chips and salsa) and they were super tasty!
here's the salsa recipe:
- 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
- 2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
- ¼ cups Chopped Onion
- 1 clove Garlic, Minced
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
- ¼ teaspoons Sugar
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- ¼ teaspoons Ground Cumin
- ½ cups Cilantro (more To Taste!)
- ½ whole Lime Juice
Preparation Instructionscombine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor. pulse until you get to the salsa consistency you'd like. test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
refrigerate salsa for at least an hour. serve with tortilla chips or cheese nachos.
-have a nice thursday!
