Because the weather has been so amazingly warm lately, we've been making a lot homemade salsa.

I swear that this tastes just like the best of the best Mexican Restaurant salsa's (it probably helps eating out of these fun salsa bowls). seriously, it rocks. I know what you're thinking, "that's what everyone says about their recipes" but let me put your mind at ease.

1. I've already mentioned on here that if I was born into a different life or culture I'd be Mexican. How do I know that? I just do. If that doesn't do it for you...
2. I grew up on the West coast ergo good, really good Mexican food (yes I'm biased, really biased)
3. I eat burritos Every Day. I kid you not. Every day, and I never get tired of them (I make a lot of this bean mix in the crockpot and it will last me about a week)
4. I didn't really cook much Mexican food until we moved to Erie Pennsylvania, where we found a ghastly lack of Mexican food. There was one restaurant that was ok (but not worth spending precious student loans on). Thus, if I wanted to eat Mexican, I had to cook it myself. 
6. Did I mention that this is my Mom's recipe, ergo again, it's bound to be amazing. (not sure what happened to reason number 5, but I'm sure it was good)

Was that enough proof for you? I might have exaggerated a little, for by no means do I consider myself a good cook; I make dinner because we need dinner. But, Mexican food is something I refuse to take lightly when eating or cooking, especially salsa. I'm telling you, this is good stuff.

 And did I mention that it only takes like 5 seconds to make.

You just need 5 ingredients for this version:
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 small onion (or half of a large onion)
a small can of diced jalapenos (or 1 fresh jalapeno)
1/2 of a small bunch of cilantro (you may want do a little at a time just to make sure it's not too much)
half a lime (squeezed)
1 tbsp of salt (i guess this would technically be a 6th ingredient)
salsa bowl

put into a blender or food processor.
Add more salt if needed.

  1. Sounds good to me. A burrito a day? That's impressive =)

  2. The salsa sounds great, I'll have to try it. We just moved to IL from Colorado and before we left we went to Ikea and bought a bunch of food containers and hit up all our favorite Mexican restaurants and bought quarts of green chile to freeze. We could eat Mexican every day too, but I have to make it last until we go back to visit the kids and we can restock!

  3. I really like restaurant salsa, especially alongside warm tortilla chips! Thanks for sharing on Handmade Tuesdays.

  4. This looks so yummy! I should try it with chips. It would be delicious!

  5. Can't wait to make this!! Glad to have you at Things I've Done Thursday!

  6. This looks so simple & sound delicious I will have to try it out! thanks for sharing :)

  7. Where may I find the crock pot bean mix recipe as mentioned in comment #3? Thanks!

    1. Hi Karen, you know, I can't believe I've never shared it before. I guess I better share it; I'll let you know as soon as I put it on.
