As our thoughts turn to Fall, we've got to come to terms with the fact that we're giving up on fresh garden tomatoes until next Summer rolls around.
I know. What the heck kind of way is that to start a post, woman?!? ;-) We've got to make room for pumpkin-y and apple-y goodness somehow, people!
BUT! If you're not quite ready to give up on homemade salsa, you can use this recipe throughout Fall and Winter to get you over the hump until the fresh tomatoes are back. It's quick and simple, and you can add as much heat as you'd like. Give it a try!
Super Simple Salsa
14 oz. can diced tomatoes
10 oz. can original Rotel
1/2 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalepeno, seeded and minced
1 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. dried cilantro
1 Tbsp. lime juice
- Add all ingredients into a food processor and process until desired consistency.
- Serve with tortilla chips.
- Store leftover salsa in refrigerator for up to one week.
Note: if you like super spicy salsa, remember to leave the seeds in your jalapeno before processing.
