Though I rarely make it myself, I love fresh salsa. Crisp veggies, bright flavors–yum! Lots of chopping, expensive (and, here, rare) ingredients–not so yummy.
As I mentioned in my weekly menu plan, Muir Glen recently sent me a basket of goodies to try. My first experiment was Zesty Fire Roasted Salsa, a recipe from the booklet they sent. It was delicious!
And the best part was the lack of chopping and expensive ingredients. No fresh tomatoes or jalapenos needed!
- 1 can Muir Glen organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
- 1/3 c. chopped red onion
- 2 T chopped fresh cilantro (or more if you love cilantro as much as I do)
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (or a few dashes of garlic powder)
- 2 tsp. lime juice
- 1/8 tsp. salt
Mix it all up and let it sit for at least a half hour to let the flavors mesh.
Serve with tortilla chips or whatever you want. We had ours with homemade chicken enchiladas.
