Give us our food for today. Matthew 6:11
Almost a year ago I had the best salsa I’ve ever had in my life. It was from a restaurant called Mojitos, and let me tell you, it was awesome. After having said salsa I got into a bad little habit of running in to Mojitos just to buy it. I was doing this more often than I care to admit, and then one day it just hit me that I needed to make my own-and so I did. It turns out that making salsa is ridiculously easy.
Here’s what you need:
Cilantro, large can of tomatoes, one lime, cayenne seasoning(optional), white onion, 1-2 heads of garlic, and salt to taste.
Step One: Add all ingredients to blender or food processor. The amount you use of each ingredient really just depends on your taste preferences. Start with this:
1 Jar of tomatoes(juice included)
One onion peeled and chopped
1-2 heads of garlic (I use my garlic press.)
Juice from 1/2 a lime
A small bunch of cilantro
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
Step Two: Taste! (This is where you decide if you need to add more of anything.)
During our first tasting we discovered that I may like lime and cilantro more than the other members of my family. 🙂 My husband prefers a very hot salsa. After a few batches I have concluded that Derek and I just need to have separate salsas;).
I like my recipes super quick, easy and tasty. This salsa met all my requirements! Hope you enjoy it!
