I need summer in my life! Seriously. I need warm temperatures, sand between my toes and the smell of sunblock clouding my judgement as I sip on fruity or not so fruity libations. (They can be lite libations, don’t judge!)
Anyways, with all that being said, I made salsa today. I needed something that reminded of the fresh veggies soon to be in my house. I thought I would share this super easy salsa recipe.
2 (14.5 oz) cans of diced fire roasted tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
2 (4 oz.) cans of diced green chiles
1 small lime
Fresh cilantro (the more the better for me)
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
Chop up the cloves of garlic, not too much, let the blender do most of the work. Just a couple of chops to make smaller pieces. In the blender pour one can of the diced fire roasted tomatoes and drop in the chopped garlic cloves. Blend for a few second. Garlic should be blended in with the tomatoes.
Take your lime and cut away the rime. Slice lime in fourths and throw the lime into the blender. Also throw in the your cilantro. Cut up your jalapeno and throw in as well. Don’t worry, the blender will take care of all the chopping. In a bowl combine second can of tomatoes, the 2 cans of chiles, and the rest of the ingredients. Stir to mix in the dry ingredients. Pour on into the blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend till cilantro and lime are pureed.
Pair with veggies or chips for a delicious snack!
