Favorite Food Friday:Famous Salsa


Once upon a time, a long time ago, Jason's friend Brett got into a dirt bike accident and broke himself. So, while he was recovering we would go to his mom's house every Sunday and watch football with him. Brett's mom, Pat, always put out a yummy spread, but I totally fell in love with her salsa. I would crave it during the week and couldn't wait until Sunday to scarf it down. On Sunday, I asked her for her recipe. I was sure it would be super hard to make and contain a trillion ingredients because it is to. die. for. But, it's not. It only has five ingredients. Yes, five. Easy Peasy. And did I mention that two of them come in a can? This salsa is so delish no one every guesses that it's not a hundred percent fresh ingredients. Out of all the things I make this salsa gets more requests than everything else. And not only does it taste great with tortilla chips, it makes an awesome dressing for a taco salad!

what you put in it:

1 - 14 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 can Rotel Mexican fiesta tomatoes, drained
1 bunch green onions (cut into fourths)
1 bunch cilantro (minus the stems)
garlic salt to taste



how you make it:

Put both cans of tomatoes, green onions and cilantro into a food processor. Pulse until everything is chopped small and mixed together. Add desired amount of garlic salt and pulse a few more times to mix it in. Enjoy!
