My Three Boys Salsa

My Three Boys Salsa
Our friends frequently visited a local Mexican restaurant that had great chips and salsa. One night they dipped a chip and came up with a chunk of chewed gum. Horrified, they told the manager that if he would share his salsa recipe, they’d call it a draw.
I’m sure it was all in good fun cause they are very kind people. Still, in our family the legend continues! I’ve tweaked it some and come up with something that my boys take down by the gallon!

My Three Boys Salsa

It’s a snap to put together …
This is all it takes and it doubles and triples better than you can imagine.  Just put it all in your food processor, I LOVE my 11 cup Cusinart, or get out your blender. Pulse until it looks chunky or smooth it’s all bueno!  Dip in a chip and taste for seasoning. Adjust if necessary and chill for an hour.

My Three Boys Salsa is awesome! It's easy to make it up with all the ingredients I keep on hand. Plan on serving it at all of your parties, and for my guys football games and to throw on everything.
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 1 (28 oz. can) whole tomatoes with juice
  • 2 (10 oz. cans) (Rotel brand) diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • ¼ c. chopped onion
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 whole jalapeno chili, sliced thin
  • ¼ tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 bunch cilantro, cut off tough stems
  • juice of 1 whole lime
  1. Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onions, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, lime juice and cilantro in your food processor or blender.
  2. Pulse or blend until you've reached the chunkiness you like.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Let the flavors blend for an hour.
  5. This will keep for a week or two, but only if my boys aren't around!.

Hope you like this as much as we do.  What’s your favorite salsa?
