As soon as we pick up our kids from school in the afternoon, they almost always ask, “What’s for dinner?”
It’s like these little humans in our home think that food is a necessity or something. I could totally be fine with homemade chocolate chip brownies for dinner, but that isn’t really looked upon as a nutritious dinner choice.
If you were to ask each one of our family members what their favorite meals are, I can guarantee that pizza and tacos would be in the top 3 for almost everyone. These two meals get made the most around here. Good thing everyone loves them.
And we cannot have tacos without having salsa. I cannot believe that I have not shared this recipe with you. Almost seven years of blogging, and I have kept my favorite salsa from you.
Since Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, I decided that it was time for our family salsa recipe to come to the blog. My husband has been making this salsa for years, and it truly is so delicious. And so easy!!! It’s the perfect topper to these chicken enchiladas.
Although, my hubby doesn’t measure when he makes food. So, I had to stand right there with him this time, so I could measure everything he put in. He said I was cramping his mojo, but I couldn’t share a recipe that said a pinch of this and a pinch of that. Ya know?
Whenever we go out to eat, we like to get the chips and salsa as an appetizer. Most of the time, I am not crazy about those salsas because they just don’t taste right. My husband says it is because his salsa is made with love!
I prefer my salsa to have that fresh tomato taste, but it can’t be chunky. And it cannot taste like tomato puree. This is salsa, not sauce. Yes, I do know that I’m picky. Anyone else out there that is particular in their salsa must haves?
Now I’m sure you are anxiously waiting to see what makes this salsa so amazing that I could eat an entire bag of chips with it.
Canned tomatoes are the secret to our awesome sauce salsa. Say wwwwhhhaatt? I know, you are shocked, right?
My husband does a ratio of 2:1. Two cans of spicy tomatoes and one can of regular diced tomatoes, drained and pureed to your preferred consistency. We like to use an immersion hand blender, but if you don’t have one of these, a regular blender works just as well.
Then add some fresh ingredients, and this easy homemade salsa is ready for you to go to town on it. We usually make a double batch because it never lasts long around anyone here.
