I was such a good girl. I spent time getting ready for the week. I created a menu and shopping list. I came home from work all ready for my tacos. I open the fridge to pull everything out only to discover I have NO salsa. Aaack! This is odd as I normally keep at least 3 jars of my favorite in stock. I totally forgot I let it run out on purpose for my move. *sigh* What’s a girl to do?
Well make her own… of course! Luckily I just picked up a giant tomato from the farm stand. I had a half of a sweet onion and some other stock items that worked perfectly. It was tasty, spicy and so much better then the jarred stuff! Even the husband liked it! Shocker I know! :)
- 1 large ripe garden tomato diced
- 1/2 of a sweet onion diced
- 1 cup baby spinach leaves chopped up
- 1 tsp dried cilantro
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1 tsp tabasco
- 1 tsp green chili sauce
- 4-5 sliced jarred jalapenos
- 1 tsp of the jalapeno "juice"
Combine all ingredients and let it site until ready to use. I used mine in about a half an hour and it was perfect.
Here are some shots of the boy in the back of the apartment when I took the bowl outside for pictures. Can you make him out on top of the hill? :)
