Today is TACO DAY. Well, for me, every day is taco day. Heck, I even had tacos at my wedding. But I have nothing against people who just want to get the word out there. I think I’m going to write a book called “The Taco Diet: How I stayed the Same Weight. ”
But you can’t have tacos without salsa, can you? No, you cannot. And please, please, STOP BUYING STORE-BOUGHT SALSA. It’s either no good, or ridiculously expensive. If you make this salsa you will never go back, I promise. And the best part is you can have all these ingredients (perhaps minus the cilantro) in your house at ALL TIMES. I know I do. You never know when you’re going to HAVE to eat tacos. right now.
Here’s what you need:
1 can petite diced tomatoes (juice and all!)
1 can rotel (or generic, tomatoes with green chilies)
1 garlic clove, pressed or chopped
a small spoon or squirt of honey
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 large red onion, or a whole small one roughly chopped
the juice of 1/2 – 1 lime, depending on the size/juiciness. I usually use more.
1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped (I LOVE me some cilantro, but you can use however much you like)
salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything in a blender and blend until well combined. Taste, adjust to your preference and you’re done! I keep ours in a large Weck jar and it stays fresh for almost two months. Or two days. You know.
Fun Fact: This whole recipe (about 5 cups of salsa) costs around 3 bucks.
