I love Green Mountain Gringo medium salsa, it’s my favorite if I have to buy jarred salsa, but it is up to five dollars, I got sick of paying a five-spot, so I went home and whipped some up. So from now on, I just make some salsa or pico de gallo. Super easy.
Canned tomatoes, drained – if you are using real tomatoes, do not drain, scrape all the moisture off the cutting board. Add anything or everything you have in the fridge. Corn, black beans, or any beans for that matter. Onion, jalapeno, lime, cilantro, salt & pepper. One tip is use the food processor and process everything separately, quickly, one, two, chop chop on the tomatoes, then process onion, jalapeno and cilantro or hand chop.
Another handy tip they have frozen ice cubes of herbs in the freezer section, the brand is Dorot. http://mydorot.com/. I love keeping garlic, cilantro, parsley in my freezer, so easy to pop in when you don’t have fresh herbs. Wholly guacamole is another great item to have in the fridge, they have single 100 calorie packets, usually in the produce section. They last way past the expiration date. I also add a little squirt of lime & salt, sometimes, I add onion and tomatoes.
Perfect for a snowy day, quick lunch, nachos with some quick salsa.
