I have decided to rejoin the wonderful world of blogging after a (too) long hiatus - partially because of work, and partially because I got lazy. But let's not dwell on the past. I'm here now, and that's what matters. (Also, I have a lot of time on my hands now that I am the trophy wife of the recently graduated Dr. Pirate!)
If you have never tried your hand at homemade salsa, I would definitely urge you to do so! Yes, it's easy (and delicious!) to buy a jar of Pace, but where's the satisfaction in serving that to a guest? Besides, it's so easy to make salsa that there's no excuse not to! Plus, you have so many choices! This is how I made mine:
2 tomatoes (the softer the better...more juicy!)
1.5 jalapeno peppers (I seeded one, and kept the seeds from the half. If you want it hotter, add more seeds!)
approx. 1/2 cup roasted corn
1 poblano pepper, roasted
approx. 1/2 of a good sized purple onion
a generous handful of cilantro
salt, pepper, cumin, garlic to taste
1. Chop all ingredients to your desired size, I kept mine rather chunky
2. Bring to a boil on the stove
3. Let cool, add cilantro, and eat!
I boat motored mine ever so slightly, just to make it a little more juicy.
Next time, I'm gonna add black beans! YUM!
