For those of you who regularly read this blog and see all of the fabulous recipes that Ashleigh posts, you're gonna want to sit down....
I'm posting a recipe!!!!!
You will never see a squash soup recipe I made up or homemade ravioli from this girl, but this salsa is quick and easy and my "Go to" recipe whenever I need to bring a snack somewhere. I keep most all of the ingredients on hand and it takes all of 5 minutes to make. I have to give a shout out to my brother -in-law, Curtis, who got this recipe when he was living in Arizona and I have changed just a few things over the years.
These are the ingredients....
2 Cans Stewed Tomatoes (Mexican or Italian style, either works)
1 Small Can El Pato brand Mexican tomato sauce (in the ethnic food section of my grocery)
1/2 small jar of Herdez brand salsa (also in the ethnic food section)
3-4 green onions chopped coarsely
1/3 bunch of fresh cilantro chopped coarsely
2-4 cloves garlic (depending on size of clove and preference)
Literally open cans, coarsely chop and throw it all in the blender.
I blend it pretty well, this is more of a liquidy salsa, rather than chunky.
I pour it into mason jars and pop into the fridge. It seems to keep well for up to a week but usually doesn't last that long around here. I even gave these out (with chips) as Christmas gifts one year to my neigbors and kids' teachers. I said something about spicing up the holidays on a tag.
So, I hope this spices up your next tortilla chip, or taco, or burrito!
And don't hold your breath for any more of my recipes.
Unless you want the phone number for Little Ceasars, it's on speed dial from my cell.
