Last Monday, I spent the day in the hospital awaiting the arrival of the Little Peanut. She is my newest pride and joy and I can’t believe she is a week old. I stayed at their house for a few days, and did some cooking but didn’t take many photos of the food. Wonder why?
I did make a batch of my daughter’s fabulous salsa and thought I would share her easy recipe. I eat it on everything….like a good little Texan.
- 6 slices of jalapenos, pickled from a jar (or more, if you like it hotter)
- A splash of the jalapeno juice (just a little pour….probably a couple of tbsp.)
- 1/4 chopped onion
- 1/3 bunch of cilantro
- Juice of a lime (which I didn’t have so….I used the equivalent from a bottle)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 can of Rotel tomatoes
- Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper to taste
In a blender, put the onions, jalapenos, jalapeno juice, cilantro, lime juice and part of the diced tomatoes (for a little liquid) and give it a few pulses to blend….,keeping it a little chunky.
Add the rest of the tomatoes and Rotel and finish blending….again….keeping it a little chunky. Pour into a quart jar and eat it on everything!
Easy! If you want this to have a chipotle flavor, add a pepper out of a can of chipotle peppers. If you want to make a peach salsa, just chop up a peach and blend it into the beginning of the process.
Hi, my name is Susan and I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love. I am quite skilled at shopping 🙂 and finding a bargain just makes my day.
