We Like it HOT!

Here in Texas we LOVE our Hot Sauce.
Or Salsa.... whatever you call it.. we LOVE it!
We eat chips and salsa like it's going out of style!
We cook with it.
We would drink it if it would fit in a straw!

I used to spend hours making and canning gallons of homemade salsa.
Then I found a great little cheater recipe for wonderful salsa!
It takes 3 minutes! No Lie!
Simple ingredients that I bet you have in your pantry!
If you don't... You should!I dare you NOT to fall in love with it!
It's wonderful to have on hand when you have unexpected visitors!
Here we go!

Dana's 3-Minute Salsa

Ingredients

- 1, 28oz can of tomato sauce
- 1, 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes
- 2, 10oz. cans of Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (I use ROTEL brand, You can use 1 can if your a real sissy)
- chunk of an onion (maybe 1/3 of a med onion)
- Salt , generous pinch
- garlic powder just a shake or two.

OPTIONAL
- Cilantro, to taste
- Jalapeno peppers, to taste
- Sour Cream (I always top my bowl of salsa with a dollop of Sour Cream)

Directions
1.) Toss your chunk of onion & peppers into your trusty blender.
2.) Dump in your cans of Tomato & Chillies
3.) turn on the blender for a few seconds to chop up the onion/peppers.
4.) dump in all other ingredients.
5.) blend until well mixed. (longer if you like it smooth, shorter if you like it chunky)
6.) pour into a bowl, top with sour cream if you like it that way... and enjoy!

How easy is that?!?!?
you can play with it all you want.
Add LOTS of hot peppers for more heat.
Add lots of Cilantro if that floats your boat.
Have fun with it!
Pin It!

  2. I like mine with some cilantro and a bit of lime. Had some great tomatoes in the garden last year I made some salsa with.

    I'll have to give your recipe a try.

  4. You made a grammatical error in this post. In the list of ingredients, in the side note next to the Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies, you used "your" instead of the correct "you're".

  6. Now THIS is great Salsa. I squeeze a lemon or a lime into it just before serving. Makes my mouth water to think of it!
