|Fire Roasted Salsa|
NOTE: We're not very good at planning out meals in connection with holidays like a lot of other recipe bloggers are...but we have noticed all the Cinco De Mayo recipes being posted and remembered we have a Fish "Taco" recipe and this salsa recipe scheduled to post next week. So, we're pushing out this salsa recipe and tomorrow, the Fish "taco" recipe in case you want to use it for your Cinco De Mayo celebration.
We loved this recipe!
Made this the other weekend, we only had one jalapeno and the jalapenos at both the Farmer's Market and grocery stores looked old and wrinkled. We could have used at least one more jalapeno in our salsa but this is very tasty and easy to make.
We made the salsa for our Crock Pot Salsa Chicken recipe which will be posted soon. Thinking about using the Paleo Pizza Crust recipe we tried the other week to make "chips" for the male half of this couple to eat with the rest of the salsa.
We're definitely making this again! Forgot to take more photos of the salsa.
Makes between 3 and 4 cups (I forgot to measure it)
Prep Time: approx. 10 - 15 minutes
2 - 15 oz. cans of organic fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 jalapenos, chopped into smaller pieces, seeds removed (leave some seeds if you want some heat)
1/2 cup cilantro, rough chop
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice from 1/2 a lime
1/4 t. cumin
1/4 t. oregano
Pure Sea Salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything into a food processor or blender and blend until thoroughly combined and in small enough chunks. We like our salsa less chunky. Chill for 30 minutes. Yummy!
Enjoy...we sure did!
