(almost) FRESH SALSA!!!

My kids love chips and Salsa. They would live on it if I would let them. But we don't like that nasty, chunky Salsa that comes in a jar. We like the fresh , smooth kind. So, I found the easiest, most incredible Salsa in this world and you, my loyal blogger buddies, get to know our secret family recipe for (almost) fresh Salsa. Try it- you will be in love!

Get out your blender (yes blender)
Open one 28 oz can of whole tomatoes (we use the Walmart brand for .97 cents cause I am cheap and we like it) and dump it in the blender.
Next, cut up one whole onion and dump it in.
Then add approximate 1/2 to 1 cup of fresh Cilantro (depending on how much you like)
Throw in some Jalapeno peppers. (I use the pickled Jalapeno peppers in a can- like the ones you eat on Nachos). I put about 5 slices in. If you like it hot then add more.
Finally toss in about 1 tablespoon of salt and then blend. It will make a good amount and can be stored in your frig for a couple of weeks- although ours never last that long. :0) Enjoy!

Oooh, I have to admit. I LOVE your salsa! I've been dying to make it, but I haven't because I know that I'll last approximately 5 minutes before I rip into the tortilla chips and eat the whole bag.

I'll just have to have it at your house. :-)
