Quick Salsa – great for parties

After Owen’s birth I seemed to develop a slight addiction to Salsa. It was something I never really liked prior to the age of 25 :) – ask my mom ;-) – and so to become such a fan is just funny. Weird how our taste buds change.

I came across a quick and easy restaurant style salsa the other day on pinterest… and had to try it.

Here’s what you need:

1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1- 10 oz can orginal Rotel
1/2 small onion, chopped (small)
1 clove garlic, crushed, or cut fine.
1/2-1 jalapeno, leave seeds in if you like it super spicey
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon raw salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 – 1 teaspoon (or more – to taste) cilantro leaves
1 lime, squeezeeee ;-) aka the juice.

(fresh cilantro btw would be best, but I sadly did not have fresh, so my recipe isnt nearly as celantro-ish as the original – but it still taste amazing! Just isnt as pretty.)

Directions:

Throw everything together into a blender, pulse it for about 10-15 seconds until well blended… and serve with some great tortilla chips. Thats it! Its super easy and taste great! Makes a good amount too, so if you have a party this sunday for Super Bowl Sunday :) – this would be a great item to serve.

Enjoy! :)
