Karen's Speedy Salsa and a Halo Quesadilla
So frequently disappointed by store bought salsas, I decided to make my own. This recipe is inspired by the salsa served at my favorite mexican restaurant, El Gordito in Murrieta, CA. I’m in no way claiming this is a copycat recipe. I’m not that good! If you live in the area, head over there and try it out for yourself. You’ll be glad you did! If you try my salsa, let me know what you think! I’d also love to hear about any alterations you would make.
Karen’s Speedy Homemade Salsa
15 oz. can of Hunt’s tomato sauce
1/8 tsp fresh chopped jalapeno (more or less depending on how hot you like it)
3 green onions, washed, roots trimmed off and sliced in half
1/8 tsp fresh chopped garlic
dash of black pepper
dash of Lawry’s garlic salt
dash of lime juice
2 tbs of fresh cilantro leaves
Add all ingredients except cilantro to a blender and puree for about one minute. Add cilantro and pulse until blended. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or more to allow flavors to blend.
