I am always leery to post recipes that I didn’t come up with myself. Because let’s be honest, you could Google just about anything, but I can’t keep this one in. I am a self proclaimed salsa snob/addict. Chips and salsa are my desert food. If I were stuck on a desert for the rest of my life with just one food, it would be chips and salsa. But again, I am so picky about salsa it’s ridiculous.
I have been on the search for the best salsa recipe and am know for sure I’ve found it.
What does this have to do with being Thrifty you may ask. Well first of all, anything you can make from scratch and not outright buy or go to the store almost always saves you money. Second, I am known for sending my husband regularly to the mexican restaurant for chips and salsa togo. That bill is always just over $6. With this recipe which is BETTER than most every salsa I’ve ever had, I can make 10 times as much for half the cost.
Are you sold on this salsa yet? If you are looking for the best salsa ever, look no further. The Pioneer Woman has done it! Please make this and tell me how it changes your salsa world! I’ve copied the recipe below to make it easier for you to make 🙂
Oh and the best way to eat this is definitely baking chips for about 7 minutes in the oven at 350 until they get nice and crispy. You’ll think you were eating out.
What You Need
1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
1/4 cup Chopped Onion
1 clove Garlic, Minced
1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/2 cup Cilantro (more To Taste!)
1/2 whole Lime Juice
What To Do
1. Throw the onion, jalapeño and cilantro in a food processor and chop it all up.
2. Throw everything else in.
3. Pulse to desired consistency. I like my pretty runny.
4. Test it and adjust seasonings.
5. Refrigerate for at least an hour. The longer it sits the better!
Thank you Pioneer Woman.
And your welcome to anyone that starts making this.
