What a beautiful Saturday! Sunny and 60 in February! You won’t hear any complaints from this girl! But you might tomorrow when its supposed to be a high of 39 and they’re calling for around 3 inches of snow. Can’t it just be Spring already?
Anyhoo, while I was watching the 6 hour long (at least it felt like 6 hours) Whitney Houston funeral, I whipped up some fresh salsa.
Chips and salsa is easily one of my favorite foods. Every day when I came home from school, chips and salsa was my after-school snack of choice. Add in a little cheese and sour cream and microwave it for about a minute and you’re really in business.
But restaurant style salsa? Its always waaay better than the stuff you buy in the store. I do like a chunkier salsa but for whatever reason, it doesn’t bother me that restaurant style is a little soupier if you will.
Despite how much I’ve loved it, I’ve never actually made salsa. Surprising, right? I had previously seen the Pioneer Woman post for restaurant style salsa and when I saw this the other day I knew it was about time I got around to making some salsa!
And its Pioneer Woman so you can’t really go wrong, right?
Restaurant Style Salsa
Recipe by Pioneer Woman
- 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
- 2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel
- 1/4 cup Onion, Chopped
- 1 clove Garlic, Pressed
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
- 1/2 cup Cilantro
- 1 Lime, Juiced
Add all ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse to combine.
**Note: This recipe makes a lot of salsa. If you have a smaller food processor you may need to break it into batches. Mine is a 12 cup and fit everything perfectly. Also, if you don’t like a lot of heat, remove the seeds and ribs from your jalapeno. I threw all of the seeds and ribs in with mine and it turned out great.
This is literally the easiest thing I’ve ever made. The most difficult part is probably trying not to cry while chopping the onion. Well, that and clean up. I made a wee bit of a mess and my shirt is now redecorated with a few tomato splatters. What else is new.
Now time to relax a bit on this beautiful Spring-esque day! Happy Saturday y’all!
