A Little Taste of Mexico and Homemade Fresh Salsa

Homemade Fresh Salsa

My family loves the Hispanic Culture. From the people, to the feista’s to the food. My community has a large Hispanic Population, so with that comes several Mexican Restuarants in town. And we normally eat at our favorite mexican resturant or cook Mexican food at home twice a week.

First, I started with the salsa-I really love making this and it’s not a Mexican Dinner without salsa! A friend from years ago taught me and after tweaking for my family a little I finally found the perfect recipe!
My salsa recipe will make a quart size mason jar.

Here is what it consists of:

1 Lg can of crushed tomatoes
2-3 jalapeños (add an extra for more heat)
1 bunch of green onions
2 heaping tables of minced garlic
1- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
A few leafs of cilantro

In blender, mix jalapeño with a couple tablespoons of water and purée. Best if peppers are sliced down middle. I leave seeds for extra heat.

Next add tomatoes, minced garlic and salt and nd and a few leaves of cilanteo blend a couple of times.

Then take 3-4 green onions tops and dice them down to the white onion part. if you do not like chunks in salsa then blend them up with the rest of the mixture. If you do like chunks, don’t blend the onions but just stir them in salsa.

Pour in jar and leave overnight so the flavors will mix together yum!

    • Hi, Thanks for stopping by! The amazing think about the blog I shared about the Link Parties, http://www.beautythroughimperfection.com/link-parties/ is that she actually has compiled a link of blogs that participate in link parties by the Days of the Week! How awesome is that! My goal is try and link to 3 parties every day for the first few weeks. I know that might be hard but i am challenging myself to do it lol. Then I plan to starting linking every other day. It’s really just however much traffic you are looking at getting on your blog. And this way you are finding Amazing blogs in the process!

      My family is involved in Mission work in Guatemala. We travel every year to work with an organization called “James 127 Project”. I feel the Hispanic Culture in my blood! You should really try some of the amazing dishes the restaurants have to offer. If you need some good suggestions, just let me know!

  2. So how often do you have link parties? I live in an area where there are a lot of Mexican and restaurants from other south of the border countries. I know I need to try more, but when I go the restaurant, I don’t know what to order (sort of like my experience at authentic Chinese restaurants).
