Growing up there was a great little Mexican restaurant in my town with the best salsa. It is super duper good. So super good that there may have been requests given to people that as they drive by on their way home to pick up an order of chips and salsa. We might be having spaghetti for dinner but in my family we can eat chips and salsa anytime! I’ve moved and so has the restaurant but I used the new Honeyville Freeze Dried Onions to come up with a salsa that comes awfully close to my hometown favorite!
2 Tbsp. Honeyville Freeze Dried Onions
1 (14.5 oz) can Diced Tomatoes, UNdrained
1 Jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed
2 Tbsp Lime Juice (about 1/2 of a juicy lime)
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, chopped
1/8 tsp. Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
Put all ingredients into a blender. Puree until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 1 and 3/4 cups prepared salsa.
The salsa was so easy to make. I didn’t even bother hydrating the onions first. Sometimes I like a chunky salsa but this one is a very smooth. This shouldn’t surprise anyone coming from me, but this is a very mild salsa. There have been times that I think store bought mild salsa has too much kick–I know I am a whimp! If desired, add more jalapenos for a hotter salsa. Another fun thing to do when eating chips and salsa is try heating up your tortilla chips in the microwave for a few seconds.
