Cinco de Mayo Salsa

5 May

There’s almost nothing I love more than going out for Mexican food. The melted cheese, jalapenos, and fresh salsa are irresistible! Oh, and of course the margaritas. I thought this Cinco de Mayo I would share a delicious salsa recipe I recently got the chance to try from a friend in South Carolina. It makes a large enough batch for serving at a gathering/party.

You will need:

1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes or 6-7 small tomatoes

2 cans (10 ounce) Rotel (I use original)

¼ cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 whole jalapeno, seeds and all

¼ tsp sugar

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp ground cumin

½ cup cilantro

Juice of ½ a lime

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

I’ve known multiple people who have suffered death after fighting cancer so I wanted to take this opportunity to put the word out of how important cancer research can be and to show my support for Relay for Life.
