Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts: Salsa

Sunday, May 22, 2011


My husband and I LOVE Salsa!  For years we have grown tomatoes and peppers, so we could make fresh from the garden salsa.  It has kind of become our "thing" when we go to group get togethers.  We always bring the salsa.  We have quite a few different ones me like, and I am sure they will make an appearance on here as the summer moves on.  But in Iowa tomatoes are not fresh yet.  So what are you do to when you want fresh salsa, but have no fresh tomatoes.  Use canned!

This salsa comes together super fast, and tastes wonderful.  Even though you are using canned tomatoes you do not get that "jar" flavor.  I use jarred salsa for things when cooking, but to just eat - I can't do it.  I used to, but then about 12 years ago my husband introduced me to the world of fresh salsa, and I haven't turned back since. 

Printable Recipe

1 large can whole tomatoes
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 - 2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 jalapeno, minced

Put everything into the food processor.  I like the mince the jalapeno ahead of time.  Just helps to make sure you don't have big chunks.  Process until smooth.  Done!  I told you it was super easy! 

Make sure you taste for seasoning.  If you like it hot, add more jalapeno.  These amounts are estimates, because we usually just dump - so adjust to your liking.  Store in an air tight container in the fridge, lasts for 1-2 weeks.
