No tailgate is complete without an overachieving fan! This recipe is the exception. Homemade is a loose term. We use canned petite diced tomatoes. If you prefer to use fresh tomatoes, knock yourself out. We have tested many salsas over the years. We have Julie to thank for her winning recipe. Game on! This salsa is a touchdown…with the extra point.
2-28 oz. cans of petite diced tomatoes
2-3 fresh jalapenos, removed seeds and chop fine (add more if you like it hot)
1/8 cup of lime juice or the juice of 2 limes
1-2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
3/4 of a medium white onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic
1 pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
Boil this ingredients for 5 minutes on med-high. Cool. Next, pour into a blender and blend according to your likes. If you like it “chunkier,” blend it less. Chill. Keep in fridge for several days.
