Stephanie cooks: Salsa!

Thursday, February 11, 2010

I had a few people ask about my "best-in-the-world" salsa, so I thought I would post the recipe for you!

First, though, for anyone who's wondering, "hell day" was postponed to next Tuesday due to weather.  Most of the torture activities are outside, so since it's 38 degrees and raining, they decided to postpone.  Joey was really disappointed since he's anxious to get it over with.

Anyway, back to the salsa!  Here you go...

Steph's Salsa

What you need:
  • 1 box/bag of cherry (or grape) tomatoes
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 3 jalapenos (with seeds for more spice, without seeds for a milder flavor)
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 2 cans Rotel, juice drained (1 hot, 1 Mexican)
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 spoon minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste (I don't use pepper since Joey HATES it)
  • 1 spoonful of sugar

How you make it:
  1. Chop individual ingredients with food processor - more time for thinner salsa, less time for thicker, chunkier salsa.
  2. Mix together.
  3. Consume with tons of chips.

I know, I know.  I hate to give you such difficult directions, but it is what it is.

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
