Serve Salsa in a Flash (about 15 min.)

It was the end of the workday and a co-worker and I walked to our cars together. "Hey, do you have a salsa recipe ?" she asked. Before I answered "yes" I thought to myself, "Doesn't everyone have a salsa recipe?" We got in our cars and I called out the ingredients and the process in about sixty seconds. It then occurred to me that all my online friends need to know how quick and easy it is.

Key: 3 to 1


3 tomatoes

1 pepper ( jalapeno/mild, serrano/spicy)

1 clove garlic

1 t. salt


1/4 c. cilantro

1/2 t. ground cumin

Place about 1/2" water in a small saucepan. Add tomatoes, pepper, garlic and turn stove on medium. Cook until tomato skin tears (about 10 min.).

Drain water.

Place veggies and garlic on a plate to cool if you're in a hurry to dip those chips! (about 5 min.) Remove the stem and seeds from the pepper  and throw all this in the blender or food chopper. Add salt and the optional items if you wish. Blend until you have a smooth consistency.

Voila!!! You are done, and all that in about 20 min. This salsa is so tasty I scooped up a bit  before I took the photo and as you can see I'm short about half a chip on the front of the plate.
