I think the warmer weather is finally going to start sticking around here in South TX. I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing because once it starts to get warmer it continues to get warmer until it’s almost unbearable come August. One hundred degree days becomes very common and it is hot hot hot. But this time of year is just beautiful! The wild flowers are blooming all over TX and it is the prettiest site. I keep forgetting to grab my camera before I leave the house, but I am really wanting to get some pictures of my kids in the flowers.
Since the weather is so nice we also like to spend a lot of time outdoors. Today I started getting ready and bought some new cushions for our outdoor chairs and hung some white light strands (not Christmas lights but the larger bulb kind) in our trees in the backyard. It makes the backyard so pretty at night. I just want to sit out there for hours and look at the yard all lit up. This weekend I hope to go get some pretty flowers to liven up some of our pots in the front and backyard. Enough about gardening! Let’s talk about this yummy salsa shall we???
This Easter some of my family is spending the weekend with us and I have already started to plan snacks for that weekend. We are a family that loves to snack throughout the day while drinking some sweet tea and visiting. I mean who doesn’t love to that? Right?? 🙂 I’m such a foodie nerd for planning this far in advance, but I like knowing that I have something delicious to share with my family. This Fire Roasted Salsa is extremely easy to make and you can adjust it according to how much you need or how hot you like your salsa. The tomatoes, garlic, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro fire up the flavor for some tasty salsa you will fall in love with. Serve along with tortilla chips or fresh veggies for a little extra flavor.
- 2 cans of Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes with garlic
- 2 medium sized tomatoes, diced
- 1 4oz can of diced green chili peppers
- 1-2 jalapenos diced (leave seeds if you like your salsa hot)
- 1/2 an onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup diced green onions
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 1 clove of minced garlic
- Place everything into your blender or food processor.
- Blend until you reach your desired consistency. Chunky vs smooth.
Have a great weekend everyone!
