Three of the last months WERE spent with me avoiding my kitchen and refrigerator as much as humanly possible because it was making me sick but that's all behind me now and I'm pregnant and HUNGRY.
I love salsa..like L.O.V.E. it. and I'm snobby about it. I know exactly what I want it to taste like and get very dissapointed when it doesn't. I hate jarred and I've given jarred an honest try and it just doesn't have that homemade taste that I crave when I want salsa. I have been searching and messing with salsa recipes and just haven't found one I like until today when I got home from work and wanted salsa STAT! I just kinda threw this together and was amazed at how much I loved it! Maybe it's hormones but me and the Italian LOVED this! We had this with some simple baked tortilla chips since I had left over Corn tortillas!
Doesn't it feel good when you finally find exactly what you're looking for!
PS, anyone who photographs their food..doesn't summer lighting make it about a 1000 times easier!
Makes 2 cups
1/2 cup cilantro(I could have used more of this but the Italian said that would have ruined it..you decide)
1/4 sweet onion, rough chopped
1 can diced tomatoes(this would probably be AMAZING with fresh tomatoes but our garden's a bit behind this year like everyone elses!)
1 can diced green chiles
1 pinch or two of cumin
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt(I used kosher)
1 pinch fresh ground pepper
2 tsp lime juice
1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients except lime juice and pulse until desired smoothness, I like mine pretty smooth!
2. Add lime juice. Let sit in the fridge for at least a 1/2 hour so flavors combine and then grab some chips and margaritas(or lime soda if you're in my predicament ;-) ) and enjoy your salsa!! Sombrero optional.
