When we went to the Farmer's Market, I decided that I wanted to make salsa. This time, I used a recipe given to us by a neighbor in our first neighborhood. This recipe has an immediate spicyness to it rather than a lingering punch, which I prefer. I'd rather taste the spice, not live with it!
As tomatoes have lycopene, they are great for you! This is my entry for Sweetnicks ARF Tuesday! Check her site for other healthy recipes. Load up on this salsa. It's great on meats, salads, veggies, and, of course, chips!
1 14.5 oz can Del-Monte tomatoes Mexican recipe (I used 3 chopped fresh tomatoes!)
1 10 oz. can of Rotel
1/2 medium onion
1/4 bunch cilantro, take the leaves off the stem, it will blend better
1 T garlic (I used 3- cloves, minced)
1 t salt, pepper (I didn't have black, so I used 1/3 teaspoon Cayenne)
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (ESSENTIAL!)
Put all ingredients into food processor and blend! Put salsa into a jar and refrigerate...or enjoy right away!
