Also, did I mention this salsa is man-approved? I made it for the Gator basketball game this weekend and the guys loved it! It didn't bring us any luck at winning the game (if anyone has a lucky salsa recipe, holler) but everyone was shocked when I told them it was homemade.
My salsa was on the milder side, but you could easily kick it up a notch by A) adding the jalapeno seeds to the mix or B) adding a second jalapeno. You could also add some green chiles. I mean, the opportunities are endless. (How's my salesmanship here?!) You don't even need to chop the ingredients up as much as I did, I was just feeling a little eager.
Easy, Restaurant-Style Homemade Salsa
2 cans of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles
1/2 small Sweet Onion (red onion works too, its a personal preference)
Handful of chopped Green Onion
1/2 small Green Pepper (I added some yellow and red too)
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 or 2 Jalapenos
Juice from half a Lime
1/2 to 1 cup Cilantro
1/2 teaspoon Salt (optional)
Dash of Cumin
Put everything into a food processor. Hold the chop button for 30 seconds until the salsa is the desired consistency. Done. Bam!
So what are your go-to appetizers for entertaining?
