Domestic Chicky’s Quick & Dirty Salsa
- 2 Cans Ro-tel Tomatoes, original (you can vary the heat by combining mild or hot), drained
- 1/2 onion (I used purple in the picture above), cut into chunks
- 1 handful Cilantro (mostly leaves, but a bit of stems too)
- 1t salt
- 1-2t minced garlic
- few grinds fresh black pepper
Put the onion, cilantro, salt, pepper and garlic in a food processor or blender. Pulse til finely chopped. Add tomatoes. Pulse again til desired texture is acheived (we like ours on the not-so-chunky side). Serve with tacos, fresh tortillas & butter, mix into avocados for guacamole, chips, nachos, or my personal favorite, Wheat Thins (I know, but it’s SOO good!). You can use other brands of tomatoes with chiles, but nothing beats ro-tel!
*If you have ever been to Chevy’s Restaurant (or Anchos in Riverside CA), and you love their Salsa, try this, and add a drop of mesquite liquid smoke – it will be a dead ringer!
