Well folks! I’m finally returning back to my blog. Adjusting to life with two children was a little more challenging for me than I thought it would be. So, the blog just never made it on the to-do list. I’m feeling much more adjusted to life now days and am creating/trying new recipes again. Yay! So . . . without further ado, let’s get back into it with salsa! Salsa that tastes fresh, even in the winter months.
I love salsa! That’s no secret if you peruse the blog here. I definitely prefer fresh salsa over the store-bought stuff. Sometimes that just gets tricky in the winter months since the tomatoes are just not in season and lacking in flavor. I mean, let’s be honest . . . we only get the good garden-fresh tomatoes a few months out of the year. So, what can we do the other nine?
Surprisingly, I whip up this salsa from canned tomatoes and jalapeños. I pair the canned stuff with fresh cilantro and onions. The salsa is AMAZING and full of rich tomato flavor. My husband tells me that it tastes just like the salsas found in authentic Mexican restaurants. You know . . . when you get served the chips and salsa when you are seated.
Perhaps that is all you need to know. But, more importantly, you can still make salsa during the winter months or when you just don’t have fresh tomatoes handy. This salsa is good year round.

2 (15-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon canned jalapeños
1 onion, roughly diced

Put all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until salsa is “chopped” up to desired consistency (anywhere from 5-10 pulses).
