Simple Garden Fresh Salsa

salsa fresh-5BLOGO Tomato season used to mean sliced tomato sandwiches on white bread, with mayonnaise and a little pepper.  Thankfully I've become a little more daring with my summer veggie creations. After visiting my parents over the weekend, I came home with a bag of vine ripened beauties. There is never a shortage of mexican spices and ingredients in my house. If we run out of tortilla chips, its an emergency!

Grabing some fresh cilantro and a few limes, it's salsa making time baby:)


3 cups chopped garden tomatoes

1/2 cup chopped red pepper

1 cup chopped white onion

1/4 chopped green chiles or jalepeno

juice of one lime

1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix all ingredients together, can add a little tomato sauce for thickness if your heart desires. I dip with black bean chips and wash it down with an ice cold Corona Light.
