No More Store Bought Salsa

Posted on Updated on

Not that you can’t find a good one in a store, but nothing can beat a great homemade salsa!

I haven’t made this in while but it is always a crowd pleaser especially in the hot summer months. 

I believe my husband at one point hid the bowl of salsa in the kitchen in an attempt to save some while periodically paying it a visit with a handful of sweet potato chips. I don’t blame him, in fact I gave him props for a valiant effort. The bowl was soon uncovered by one of our friends and the salsa was gone soon after that.

Ingredients:

All the below are diced finely (or place into a food processor)

  • 5 Ripe Vine Tomatoes
  • 1 Medium Red Pepper
  • 1 Ripe Avocado *optional (make sure it isn’t too ripe so it isn’t mushy, hand dice)
  • 1 Jalapeno (seeds removed if you do not want it too spicy)
  • 1/2 Medium White Onion
  • Generous handful of Fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • Juice from 1 Lime
  • Seasoning salt and pepper to taste. 
  1. Dice tomatoes or place into food processor and chop finely. 
  2. Remove and strain tomatoes so your salsa isn’t too watery. 
  3. Place the rest of your ingredients except salt, pepper and avocado into food processor and chop finely.
  4. Combine everything into large bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  5. If adding avocado, dice finely and add as well. 

Enjoy ☺

    Sounds yummy… Why not give everything a couple pulses in a food processor?!? Would make it lots easier and quicker!
