How was everyone's Easter weekend?

Ours was busy and good.  Filled with a baseball tournament on Saturday and the traditional Easter festivites of family, so much food, egg hunts and church on Sunday.  It was good to see family!

But man, I was feeling behind yesterday.  The laundry was backed up and my to-do list was a bit longer than I would have preferred.  But alas, it all got done and we survived.  And by survive, I mean ME, as no one else seems to notice the laundry.

Let's chat salsa.

If you've been a reader for any amount of time, then you know there are three things I could bathe in other than water.  Chocolate, marinara sauce and salsa.  I'm not sure if that is the correct order, depending on my mood {chocolate - cranky, marinara - moody, salsa - spicy} but those are the three winners nonetheless.

I love fresh salsas.  Take me to a Mexican joint and I can easily make chips and salsa my meal.  In the summer you'll find me making batches weekly of this copycat red blender salsa.  Let's be honest, I pretty much plant a garden each Spring just so I can make salsa.

Jarred versions are okay.

I will never, ever pass up a good jarred salsa....but there are some I turn my noise up to, as I feel their veggies are a bit, shall we say....rubbery?

When that happens I become a bit of a salsa snob and blend that rubbery stuff up in my blender to cure my salsa blues.  It isn't fresh, but it's a bit better.  Then I grab a bag of chips and I'm on my way.

Usually never to be seen again.

In the summer when the weather is gorgeous and we are spending most of our time outside, my local girlfriends and I eat our weight in salsa.

It usually goes something like this in a mass group text around 9 p.m.

"Put your kids to bed. Chips, salsa and drinks on my patio in 30 minutes."

Then the ladies know to use the side steps to our deck {as to not disturb the children by coming in our house} to find a seat on my back deck, grab a drink and start chatting.

Sometimes I'm still inside settling the natives, sometimes I'm out there by myself waiting.  Either way they know to wait if needed as I'll be coming bearing gifts {chips and salsa - did I really have to explain that? This is what this whole post is about}.

I cannot wait to serve the girls this Roasted Green Blender Salsa.  I think they are going to love it!  It's tangy and sour with just a tiny bit of heat.  I know that description sounds a bit odd, but trust me, it works and it is good.

I made the BIG mistake of making this yesterday after I took the preschooler to school and my house was empty.  Usually this is when I enjoy creating recipes {no one bothering me}, but I could have really, really used someone to hold me back after I ate chip after chip after chip of this stuff.

Thank god it only makes a pint!


Not only is this stuff great with fresh tortilla chips {hint: buy your chips fresh from a Mexican restaurant or your grocery store they are so much better}, but it is also great on tacos or poured over a pan of enchiladas.

I'm even thinking of giving this as a gift.  It would be a perfect addition when taking a Taco Tuesday type meal to a family in need.

This is the most AMAZING salsa. Don't be alarmed if you down it in one sitting! Tangy with just a hint of heat, it pairs well with fresh tortilla chips, on tacos or layered on a pan of enchiladas.

ingredients:

  • 2 11 oz. cans tomatillos
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. ground cumin

instructions:

How to cook Roasted Green Blender Salsa

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a small rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Open the tomatillos, drain and lay on the baking sheet, along with the sliced onion and two jalapenos.
  3. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.  Remove and allow to slightly cool.
  4. Using a blender or food processor, transfer the roasted veggies, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt and cumin into it and blend until it reaches your desired consistency.  I prefer mine fairly smooth.
  5. Taste and season with extra salt or cilantro if needed.
  6. Serve right away or keep in a pint jar in the fridge for up to one week.
