For Christmas Eve with the in-laws, I was asked to make salsa. I’m apparently getting quite the reputation, because my husband’s aunt told my mother-in-law that she was really excited for what I was going to whip up.
I was originally going to try to do some fancy mango or peach salsa, but then I decided to just make a classic homemade salsa. I also brought over a roasted red pepper white bean dip. Both were very well received and there was basically none left by the end of the night!
I also got to play with my parents adorable kitten, Cody.
How freakin’ adorable is he?!? He is such a friendly kitty and loves to play, just like kittens do. He’s also a brat. He likes to eat a lot.
I didn’t manage to grab a picture, but he sleeps on his back. Fully splayed out. Legs wide open, front paws over his head. It’s pretty much the cutest and funniest thing ever.
Anyway, back to salsa.
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1 large can of peeled, canned, whole tomatoes
- 1 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 cup cilantro
- juice of 1 lime
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to your desired chunkiness. If you prefer, chop up some fresh tomatoes and add them to the salsa. Also feel free to add hot sauce and/or don’t seed the jalapenos if you want your salsa to have more of a kick!
