So confession, at my house we probably go through a bag of chips and bottle of salsa a week… (Sad but true)
Now I’m not a huge “omg whats in my food” person, but I did get to thinking about all the “extras” that are in the salsa that we get.
I found a recipe that looked easy enough and thought, “What the heck, I’ll give it a try!” I’m so glad I did! This recipe is so fresh, healthy, refreshing, natural and yummy!
RESTAURANT STYLE SALSA
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes (I use organic ones)
1 (14.5 ounce) can Rotelle tomatoes (If you like it hotter, use a can of hot rotelle)
½ onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
½ lime, juiced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 green onions, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped, with most of the seeds removed (optional) (I add 2 jalapeno, Josh likes a kick to it)
1 Habanero, chopped and seeds removes (optional) (don’t touch these, I put a bag around my hand when I cut these little monsters)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend to desired consistency. Serve with tortilla chips.

Josh will honestly go to the store just to get these ingredients because he loves this so much! This does make a lot (for the average salsa eater),and should be good for a while in your refrigerator if you store it properly. We store it in a glass container that we got from sprouts and it seems to do the trick 🙂
So if you are a salsa junky like us, give this a try! Let me know how you like it!
