Salsa {ARRIBBBA}!!!


This salsa is my serious new addiction. 

Very serious. 

Holy Moly.

It has changed my life.

{slight exaggeration}  

I have changed what I am making for  breakfast, and dinner so I could use this salsa.  I found this {recipe} on Pioneer Woman's website.  Ree is so wonderful, and her recipes do not fail me.  This recipe makes a lot...initially I was like "how in the world can I eat all this salsa?"  I was being so childish.  {sigh} I have to confess that I have already made a second batch... This recipe does call for a LARGE food processor, but no worries.  Mine is a baby one, so I processes in shifts.  I was worried that this would change the taste of the salsa, but it did not {and if it did, I don't care...I'm in love...with a salsa}.  Okay.  Get ready.  

 
 You will need:

1 Can (28 oz) of diced tomatoes {target didn't have the whole tomatoes}
2 (10 oz) cans Rotel
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 whole jalapeno thinly sliced {I left all the seeds in}
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 whole lime juice 

Now this directions are pretty difficult to explain...combine all the above ingredients in a food processor, pulse until salsa reaches the consistency you want, refrigerate for an hour, and enjoy {maybe I was being a little sarcastic}!  If I had not already met my calorie intake for the day {yes, I do *attempt* to count my calories...} I would get out some of my homemade pita chips and dip away right now...  


This post makes me feel very Texan.  Just something about the word salsa makes me thankful for this wonderful state.  Alright, I'll stop talking so I do not get pegged for one of those "our state is better than yours" people.  YA'LL have a great week!  Spring break is in 3 days!  Yeehawww.  :)
