Got Tomatoes? Make Salsa!

I am SO excited to share this recipe with you...this post even trumped the post I had written for today!

You guessed it folks, this salsa ROCKS!  The pictures don't do it justice - you have to make it and taste it for yourself!  What I love about this recipe is that you can tailor it to suit your own taste buds; although, this is a great base recipe and perfectly delicious all it's own without any changes/additions. 

OK, down to the nitty-gritty... the recipe shared by a dear friend ... Thank you Lizz Pulido! 

Blended Salsa - made approximately 2 cups
by Lizz Pulido

5 Roma tomatoes
2 Jalapeno peppers
Diced (Red) onions - [I used about 1/4 of the onion, not chopped up, I let the processor that care of that :)]
Handful Cilantro, chopped -  (I did not chop up, I put it in whole, stems and all)
2-3 Garlic cloves
dash of Cumin
Salt to taste
(1/4 Fresh squeezed lime juice)

1.  Put tomatoes and jalapeno peppers (whole and in tact) in boiling water.  Boil until the skins on the tomatoes start to crack (about 7-9 minutes at rolling boil). 

2.  Using a slotted spoon, scoop tomatoes out into blender or food processor.  Using same spoon, scoop peppers out and cut off the stems (quickly as they are hot!).  Place in blender/food processor.

3.  Blend tomatoes and peppers with onion, cilantro and garlic until desired consistency. 

4.  Add cumin and salt to taste.

5.  Squeeze 1/4 fresh lime and stir. 

Viola!  You've got salsa that is fresh and to die for! 

Again, Lizz Pulido, many thanks, you rock!
