We are suckers for salsa around here. One of our favorite place to go is Los Hermanos. They have the BEST chicken taquitos (or flautas – whatever you want to call them!) and their salsa is DIVINE. The perfect consistency with just the right amount of spice. The problem? I couldn’t find a salsa recipe to even come close to this amount of yumminess.
I had been scouring for the perfect salsa recipe and found it in my own backyard. Ok ok, not really in my backyard guys…someone I knew had it and it is a fam favorite. Similar to Los Hermanos in consistency and delicious in my mouth. Plus, it’s T approved. You betcha – our girl loves hummus and salsa. Gotta get our veggies in somehow!
This is the perfect pair with any mexican dish and it’s such a delicious (and guilt free) late night snack. Trust me, I know my stuff in this area. This salsa recipe is fabulous.
- 3 cans (28 oz) diced tomatoes
- 1 jalapeno
- ⅓ bunch of cilantro
- 1 large anaheim chili
- 1 TB vinegar
- ½ bunch (3 or 4) green onions
- 1 TB salt
- 2 cloves garlic.
- Drain tomatoes.
- Cut the load in half and do two separate "loads" in the blender.
- Chill or enjoy immediately!
Sad story? Our blender broke! That means no smoothies, no Watermelon Granita, and NO SALSA! Handsome keeps saying we should get a “good” blender (aka, Vitamix, Blendtec, etc), but we’re hesitant. Can we drop that kind of cash on a blender? Hmmm… let’s see… should we buy a blender or put money into T’s college fund? Tough call…
