Before this fabulous salsa, Baby Boy swore he didn’t like salsa. He just doesn’t like anything spicy (sometimes you have to wonder, are you really my brood?). Being a good sport and all, BB decided to sample it. Umm, can we say it was gone before I knew it?
I really enjoy pico de gallo, but it is really only good when you have in season tomatoes. This is my winter solution. You can certainly increase the heat if you don’t have a Baby Boy to please.
1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes
2 cans Rotel
1/2 med onion
1 or 2 jalapenos
1/2 c minced cilantro (optional)
kosher salt to taste
You’ll need a food processor for this recipe. Chop the onion and jalapeno into large chunks.
Put them into a food processor.
Pulse approximately 8 times, for a nice rough chop.
Don’t worry about any big chunks, we’re about to pulverize this baby.
Add the can of whole tomatoes, juice and all. Then add the 2 cans of Rotel.
Juice a lime and add to the tomatoes (sorry I couldn’t quite manage a picture of me juicing..I need a 3rd maybe even a fourth hand sometimes)
Add some salt.
Close the lid on the processor, turn it on and pulverize…bwaa ha ha ha….seemed an evil laugh was approriate at that moment. Blend for at least 1 minute, maybe more, depending on the awesomeness (is that a word?) of your food processor.
Add some fresh chopped cilantro if you like. I like!
One of the great things about Winter Sals-tice, it can make a long winter day more pleasurable. It also keeps for up to two weeks if you don’t have a Baby Boy around.
