We spent this past weekend up north camping at the Mogollon Rim and in addition to making this Pasta Salad, every year I am also asked to make this super easy, but no less delicious, salsa. I learned how to make this salsa from my in laws after my husband repeatedly told me that his mom makes the best salsa there is and I needed to ask her for the recipe. Fast forward a few years and even though I use the same recipe, I’m pretty sure he still claims his mom’s is the best, but to be honest, I really can’t blame him, she is (among other things) amazing in the kitchen!
Anyway let’s get down to it, the ingredients you will need:
5 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 bunch of green onions
1 bunch of cilantro
½ yellow or white onion (I’m partial to yellow onions, so I usually use those)
2-3 Jalapenos (This is where my husband and I always differ, he prefers his salsa super hot, while I prefer mine to actually be edible… My suggestion for figuring out how many you will need is to taste a small bit of your jalapeno to see how hot it is and go from there. There have been times that I’ve only needed one jalapeno because it was just that hot)
Garlic Salt and Pepper to taste
Now for the hard part…
Roughly dice green onions, onion, cilantro and jalapeno. Toss those, along with your diced tomatoes into a blender and blend to desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and add garlic salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a bowl of tortilla chips and you are done! This makes quite a bit, so it is perfect for parties or camping or really any gathering. And I promise, once you make this salsa, you will be asked to make it again and again. But that’s okay, because it’s just so easy!
I hope you enjoy!
