We absolutely LOVE salsa in this house but I hate how much buying good salsa costs! I came up with this recipe a few years ago out of laziness and being cheap. It took a few tries but people beg for it. At one point there was a rumor going around amongst the moms at my church that I wouldn't share it and that you had to come to my house to get it. I guess I need to work on how sarcastic I can be.
I didn't expect anyone to BELIEVE me when I said that if I told them I'd have to kill them.... So here's my cheap easy salsa...

So this is really, really hard. You may want to give up now....
I won't blame you if you give up now and just come to my house for it, really...
Drum roll please......
1/2 a small onion (or 1/4thof a large)
2 cloves fresh garlic (or the equivalent of jar garlic)
1 handful of fresh cilantro
1 can of Rotel Tomatoes with Chillis
2 or 3 T. Lime Juice (depending on how you like it)
1/2 t. chili powder 3/4 t. cumin
dash of salt a few pinches of flour, any variety
1 T. water
Throw the onion, garlic and cilantro in your food processor or blender and pulse a few times until chopped.
Open and add the Rotel, lime juice, chili powder, cumin and salt. pulse a few more times until blended.
Pour in bowl. Now here's the hard part. Take the last 2 ingredients. Now sprinkle the flour on your shirt
and wet your face with the water to look like sweat. Now serve your salsa with chips, and don't forget to let
everyone know how you slaved over their homemade salsa!!!! That's what I do, apparently 🙂
Pico De Gallo
Add chopped onions, green peppers, a can of corn and a can of black beans for some killer
compliments on your culinary skills.
Sometimes I can’t get Rotel on sale so I will use a can of stewed tomatoes and some fresh
jalepeno or whatever hot pepper is cheap 🙂Advertisements
