Hope you all had a great weekend.
I was in the mood for some of my mama’s homemade salsa. I swear after eating this I just can’t eat regular store bought jarred salsa. And the great thing is it’s healthy so there’s no guilt in going crazy and eating as much as you please 😀 Which is exactly what I did. The other day my husband was working a really long day, so it was just me and the baby girl. During her nap I just relaxed with a huge bowl (or….three) of salsa, my favorite pita chips & went to town while watching White Chicks. Ha ha is it just ridiculous that I love that movie 😀
Anyway—-this is SUPER easy to make….literally it’s practically just chopping. So here ya go.
You Will Need
(*You can adjust portions to your liking)
~6 beef steak tomatoes (they are the large kind)
~1/2 bunch cilantro
~juice from 3 regular size limes
~1 red onion (1/3 if yours is bigger than a softball like mine was)
~1 bell pepper (any color—I like yellow to add a POP of color)
~3 cloves fresh minced garlic
~1/2 jar Walmart (Great Value brand) corn & black bean salsa
Season to taste with salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
* If you like it spicy add 1 Jalepeno pepper>>>You can also add baby shrimp-I don’t do that all the time, it was just on sale the other day so I tossed it in & it was amazing! My husband especially liked it.
Chop everything up & mix it together in a large bowl. It’s also good with avocado, but I’d recommend adding it on top of what you’re eating because they get all brown & mushy when they sit for a while.
