Salsa By Liz

I am posting this salsa because my son-in-law (Dan) really , really liked it. Now if I can create something Dan and Julie cannot stop eating, its a winner. Its simple to make and healthy, so get your bullet, blender or vita mix out and lets make salsa.


1       14.5 ounce can of Organic Diced Tomatoes

1       14.5 ounce can of Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes

1          4    ounce can of green chiles

1/2       Cup Chopped Cilantro

1/4       Cup Diced Chives

1/2       Cup Chopped Purple Onion (yellow or white is fine also)

1           Tablespoon Garlic

1            Tablespoon Cumin

1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt (your preference)

1/2         teaspoon black pepper

1             fresh squeezed lemon or lime (what ever you have on hand works)

1/2         Cup Chopped red bell pepper

2             Quart mixing bowl


Place  1 of the cans of tomatoes into  your blender, bullet or vita-mix. Add 1/2 of all of the  remaining ingredients and all of the garlic into your preferred mixing vessel and blend. I don’t puree the mixture, I like to leave a little chunky. Add all of the blended mixture to a 2 quart bowl with the remaining 1/2 of the ingredients, stir to blend. If you want your salsa  really chunky then mix all of the ingredients into a 2 quart bowl. Its really good and ready to eat admittedly, but tomorrow its even better. My family had a hard time waiting until tomorrow, hope you enjoy.

Makes 1 Quart

Disclaimer: I am sure there are a lot of salsa recipes on the web, this is my original recipe I have been making for years, handed down to me by my Aunt Lorene, who taught me how to cook from scratch.
