Loving Jesus, Loving Life

Awesome Sauce

We are back from Bulgaria! And I want to tell you all about it. But I haven’t even unpacked my suitcases yet, so instead of trying to get my jumbled thoughts all in a row…we’re going to talk about SALSA! 🙂

I love me some Mexican food. Especially chips and salsa or guac or pico de gallo…I could seriously eat it for every meal…Okay, maybe not breakfast…but all the other ones.

I highly prefer homemade dips, though, and this salsa recipe has become my favorite.

Here are the ingredients…

Dei Fratelli seasoned diced tomatoes (2 28oz cans)
minced garlic (1 tsp)
chopped onion (not quite 1)
cilantro, chopped into smaller pieces (a LOT)

Can you tell I didn’t really measure?

I dump off some of the excess water from the tomatoes, and throw everything in the blender (or you could use a food processor).

Give it a quick whirl, and ta-da! The easiest, tastiest salsa!

This recipe makes quite a large yield, which is perfect for our hungry family. But you might want to cut it in half if you’re not up for consuming a couple of bags of tortilla chips! 🙂

If you’re like me and hate how fast fresh herbs (like cilantro) wilt and turn brown in the refrigerator, I have good news for you! Luke found (in the recesses of the internet somewhere) a really great method for successfully storing cilantro for 2-3 weeks! Woot!

Pour water in a mason jar, and put the stems into it. Then cover the top of the herbs with a sandwich baggie. Store in the fridge (not too close to the back, where everything freezes, at least in my fridge!). Quick, simple, and effective!

Let me know if you try the recipe! Hope you enjoy it!


  1. I like fresh salsa on breakfast burritos! Or like skillet scrambles! So you could turn it into a breakfast addiction too!!

    I just threw some cilantro away… darn it! I will try that next time. Do you do Bountiful Baskets in your area? just over $15 gets you a basket of veggies and a basket of fruits. It’s a Co-op… we sometimes do it and one we we got ~$50 of fruits and veggies for $15. Nice! I don’t see MI on the list… but there could be one someday I bet.

    • Oh, Michelle, I WISH there was a co-op like that around here! I’d totally be in! I love fresh fruits and veggies and hate how much they cost. You’re a lucky girl! 🙂

  3. I’m always up for food! Especially when in good company:) let me know when a good day is!
