Homemade Salsa

FullSizeRender.jpgY‘all know I love all things Mexican. So why I haven’t made my own salsa before? I have no idea!! I live off salsa and avocados. It might be a problem, actually. There is this restaurant in my hometown of Enterprise, Alabama, that has the greatest salsa!!! Anytime my sisters and I go home someone will go pick up a pint {or two} of it so we can eat it all weekend. No lie. That salsa is far above anything you can find in a store. Trust me, I think I have tried every salsa out there. Finally, it hit me to make my own and I must say, this is the closest I have come to THAT salsa. Even Daniel kept saying how good it was. The good thing about it is that it gets better as it sits. The flavors blend and it is heaven on a chip! I have been taking it every day with my lunch to work. And then snacking on it when I get home. All you do is throw everything in a food processors and BAM, salsa! Plus, it’s easy to enjoy knowing all the ingredients are fresh. Did you know a lot of salsas have added sugar? Yep, but not this one, so indulge without the guilt!

Speaking of not feeling guilty, I am hooked on all things Siete!! It is a company that makes grain free tortilla and tortilla chips and they are SO good! They use almond or cassava flour. You can find them at Whole Foods. They are a little pricey, but they do go on sale! I went today and the tortillas and the chips were on sale so I racked up! Anyway, back to the salsa. Take a look….

    1. Hey Laken!! That’s a great questions and I just added it to the recipe! It makes 4-5 cups (depending on how big your tomatoes are). Every time I make it, it fills up a quart container with a little left over. Hope this helps!! And enjoy!
