In honor of Cinco de Mayo or as I like to call it…May 5th…I thought I would highlight an oldie but goody. I’m pretty sure it’s about as far from authentic Mexican fare as you can get, but hey, it features crack Doritos, making it popular with the kiddoes.
I love salsa…but not the thick chunky stuff. I like restaurant style salsa and have found a quick and easy recipe that is SO good and SO easy. Which, for those of you that have been here before, know is my M-O. I don’t do complicated.
Restaurant Style Salsa
1 can (28 oz) Whole Peeled Tomatoes (with juice)
2 cans (10 oz) Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies *I like to use one can Rotel Original and one can Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice and Cilantro
1/2 cup cilantro (or to taste)
1 whole jalapeno, sliced and seeds removed if desired
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
juice of 1/2 fresh lime
