Cooking Corner: Homemade salsa to knock your socks off!

This week’s cooking corner will provide the final touch to the snack food trifecta: Salsa. The two previous weeks of cooking corner included guacamole and homemade pita chips and this week’s salsa recipe will complete the set. Whether you are a game-day grazer or a munchie-maniac, a short trip to the grocery store for a few ingredients will dish out enough salsa to feed everyone. A blender could be substituted for a food processor if necessary, but the amount of salsa made with this recipe will be more than adequate to trade a friend for a little chop time on their processor.

1 small onion
1 large can Italian tomatoes
5 cans whole peeled tomatoes
5 cans Mexican Style stewed tomatoes
1 small can chilis
1 bunch green onions
1/3 bunch cilantro
2 T chili powder
1 T crushed garlic
1 can diced jalapenos
Juice from 1 lime

In a food processor pulse the onion for a few seconds. Then add the rest of the ingredients and continue for a few more seconds until well mixed.

*TIP*: To get the most juice out of the lime use a fork to puncture the flesh before squeezing
