The hubs harvested a bountiful basket of tomatoes tonight...a sure fire hint that he's ready for some homemade salsa! This is a basic recipe to make yummy use of your tomato crop...there are a wide variety of options that I'll list at then end...the degree of heat is completely up to you!
6 large ripe tomatoes (diced)
1 medium sweet onion (finely chopped)
1 bell pepper (seeds removed and minced)
8 oz green chilies chopped (with juice)
3 Tbl red wine vinegar
1 Tbl olive oil
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Combine the base ingredients, sample and see how you like the flavor. If you prefer extra heat, add 4 oz chopped jalapeno peppers.
I prefer 1 bunch of chopped green onions to white onions
15 oz black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 large avocado (peeled and diced)
chopped cilantro if desires(I must admit, I am not a fan)
2 Tbl fresh lime juice (love this to make it taste incredibly fresh)
Tabasco Sauce (to taste for added heat)
You pick the options that you prefer...and be sure to write down your combinations as you proceed....there is NOTHING worse than making the best salsa of your life and not knowing what you put in there!
I never met a nacho I didn't like! Salsa along and Enjoy!!!
