We will be making our favorite 
Homemade Salsa.

Here are the ingredients:
Homemade Salsa
This tried-and-true recipe is always a hit at our house.
If you like cilantro, you'll love it!

Ingredients:
  • 1 large bunch of fresh cilantro 
  • 1 or 2 bunches of green onion
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 4 or 5 large tomatoes
  • 1/2 - 1 Tbsp. salt

 Instructions:

Place first 3 "green" ingredients in a food processor & mince. Add garlic, tomatoes & salt. And mince finely. 

Tips:
  • Serve fresh. This salsa cannot be stored! Make it right before serving.
  • The heat can be controlled by adding the jalapeño a little at a time. I'm particularly wimpy about hot food, so I only use the outside of the pepper - no seeds! If my kids are making it, they use 2 jalapeños WITH the seeds! 
  •  It doesn't really matter if you use yummy garden tomatoes or the practically plastic romas from the grocery store - it turns out the same.

PS - Don't you just love these orange & black tortilla chips?
