Almost Fresh Salsa

We have a Mexican night at least once a week. It usually consists of ground beef with my own taco spices and then made into soft or crunchy tacos, or nachos.  In the summertime we like to grill chicken or sirloin with peppers and onions for fajitas. Along the way I have realized how easy it is to prepare your own salsa and it tastes so fresh and good!  The reason I call this Almost Fresh is because I use canned diced tomatoes and dried cilantro instead of fresh.  I love mine with a shot of lime juice but some would rather not use it.  I have left that up to you.


Almost Fresh Salsa

1 can diced tomatoes

1/2 of one small onion diced

1/2 on one pepper diced ( I like to use red ones)

1 tsp olive oil

1-2 tsp minced garlic

2-3 tsp cilantro

salt to taste

1 tsp. lime juice (optional)

Mix, together all ingredients.  Scoop out 1/2 to 3/4 of mixture and process or blend together 1-2 minutes.  Add back into the rest of the mixture.  Add lime juice if desired. Stir and chill for at least 10 minutes.  Serve with chips and favorite foods!
