Being the, Montana bred/white girl that I am, I don't have a bunch of homemade salsa recipes. I'll cook you a rare elk steak any day. However, when it comes to Mexican food... well, mine is Americanized to say the least.
Kyle requested some homemade salsa last night and I decided to take on the challenge regardless of the fact that I had reservations. I mean let's be honest. I knew that Pioneer Woman or Paula Dean or someone from food network would have a simple 5 star recipe on the internet just waiting for me to use.
I chose my recipe and walked a block to our local produce market and....... they didn't have over half of the ingredients that I needed.
Ok, time to fake it 'til you make it! Kyle wanted salsa and that's what he's gonna get.
Turns out it was a hit! I'm sure I'll tweek it as time goes by, but here is my Salsa recipe. Kyle approved!
3 large ripe tomatoes diced
1 small white onion finley chopped
1 small red onion diced
1 clove garlic minced
1 4oz can yellow peppers and liquid (dice peppers and add juice)
1 chopped green pepper
1/2 large jalapeno pepper diced
salt, pepper, onion powder to taste
2 Tbs vegitable oil
juice of 1 lemon
I would have added cilantro if the store had it! You can also use a can or green chili's instead of yellow ones if you'd like.
Just add it all into a bowl, stir, and let sit. (you can serve it right away, but the longer it sits the more the flavors mix.. yummy)
