My staple: Homemade Salsa

Every week when I get back from the farmers market. I throw a bunch of fresh tomatoes and veggies in my food processor and make salsa. I keep it in the fridge for snacking threw the week. It is so good and an awesome, healthy snack.

My Salsa

12 Roma tomatoes (Roma work the best)
3 garlic cloves
1/2 red onion
1/2 cp cilantro
2 TB olive oil
4 TB lime juice
1/2 red pepper and green pepper
1 poblano
(For my hubby and his friends I add 1 jalapeno and 2 habaneros)

My husbands 30th Birthday was a few weeks ago. My husband has been cheated the last couple of years because our daughters birthday is the day after. We seem to celebrate hers and not his. So....For his BIG 30 I had a few of his closest friends fly in without him knowing. He came home from work to see his friends at his house. Needless to say, he flipped out. Well, I made my habanero salsa for them. Which is the recipe above with the habaneros and jalapeno. It was gone in a day and I had to make it over and over again. (This make a lot of salsa. Like 4 cps +) His friends could not get enough. But fresh ingredients always make good food.
