Sweaza Salsa

Description: So here it is, my favorite recipe that has been past down and tweaked to perfection (of my liking). If you are trying to like vegetables, salsa is a great place to start. I hate tomatoes, but I love a good salsa!

Need: 1 lime, 1 can hunts fire roasted tomatoes (diced), 1/4 a red onion, 1 tablespoon garlic (minced), fresh cilantro, 1-2 jalapenos,  salt and pepper.   Favorite chips to serve.

on a cutting board dice your red onion, jalapeno (start with 1 and if you need more kick add the other)
In a blender poor in your fire roasted tomatoes first, then add your onion and jalapeno. with a knife slice off about half of your leaves from a small bushel of cilantro and add to blender. then add garlic, salt , pepper and squeeze on half of your lime into the blender.  Blend well and taste test to make sure it has the kick that you are looking for.  If it is too hot, add another 1/2 can of tomatoes, and if it is to mild at another jalapeno. For a serious kick I have used one habanero pepper before.  Serve with your favorite chips. (I prefer blue and yellow corn)  Enjoy!


  1. Is this the salsa you brought to the party at Nicole and Greg's place? Mmmm... will definitely try to make this!

  2. I love this salsa! It's light and fresh and makes me think of Florida.
