It's New Year's Eve, and after a long day of work, I am about to head out the door for some fun and festivities with friends. Sadly, I lack the time for a full blog post today. So instead, I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes.
Hands down, my favorite snack food is chips and salsa. But the salsa that you buy in a jar at the grocery store just doesn't cut it. I absolutely adore a homemade chunky salsa with fresh tomatoes and vegetables. I've tasted lots of salsa in my life. And this recipe has got to be my favorite. It's easy, it's spicy, and it's delicious. In fact, I've got a batch setting in the fridge right now.
Here's the original recipe, which I found here.
I make a few simple changes:
- I found this recipe to be way too juicy. So I discard the juice from the whole tomatoes.
- I also found the recipe to be too much for my mixer. So I only use a single can of Rotel tomatoes. This also helps cut down on the spice a little bit.
- I double the amount of onion as well as the sugar, salt, and cumin.
Hope you have a fun celebration of the New Year, wherever you are. Be safe, play some games, and dream of a great year ahead. See you in 2014!
