Simple Salsa!

Happy Monday!  Today, I've got a story and a recipe.  I didn't always like Mexican food.  In fact, for awhile, it was my least favorite.  Flash forward to college, when my friends Manisha and Christina changed my ways.  Now, Mexican is basically a staple in our house.  Most recipes are fairly easy and are for the most part always gluten-free.  Salsa was something that always alluded me!

I'd tried a few different recipes using canned tomatoes and they were always a hit.  The problem was they made SO much that it was hard to finish it all throughout the week.  I wanted a quick salsa to go with our easy lunch of cheese quesadillas... so this is what transpired!  I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Simple Salsa, inspired by the Pioneer Woman 


1 - 14.5 oz can whole tomatoes
1 - 14.5 oz can tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 jalepeno or 1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo
Salt to taste :)

1. Add all ingredients to a small food processor and blend until desired consistency achieved.
2. Feast away with your favorite tortilla chips :)

I stored the leftovers in a mason jar!  Let me know what you think if you make it :)

What's your favorite Mexican food?
