Delicious Homemade Salsa

Kids love this easy-to-make salsa!!!


  • 1 1/2 C chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 C chopped onion
  • 1/2 C chopped green bell pepper
  • 2/3 C chopped red bell pepper 
  • 1 T minced fresh cilantro (more or less, to taste)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • chili powder to taste
  • cayenne to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Directions
    Combine all ingredients in blender and blend briefly.
    Place in refrigerator overnight.

    Great on any Mexican dish.
    Also delicious as a dip for corn chips.

    This salsa recipe is the one my picky-eater, Eric, developed.  If Eric likes it, everyone will love it!  My daughter Joy says it is the best salsa she has ever had.  (Sneaky way to get the kids to eat and enjoy nutrition-packed raw veggies.)

      Here’s another Salsa recipe sent to me today by my friend Steve Sheppard:

      Steve says:
      This is not my recipe, it came from the Mexican grandmother of a buddy of mine. Here goes, and it’s not exact:

      3 pounds of tomatoes
      1 jalepeno pepper
      6 cloves of garlic
      2 limes
      1 bunch of cilantro
      2 T balsamic vinegar
      3 T of olive oil
      1 t of cumin (best if you grind it yourself)

      Chop fine and mix everything. Add ingredients to taste, it’s never exactly the same. NEVER use: garlic powder, garlic salt, lime juice, dry cilantro (does it even exist?) or any oil other than olive!
