recently i've discovered all i want is salsa.
maybe it's the whole im-on-the-east-coast-with-fake-mexican-food thing or just because i like salsa.
it's one or the other.

WELL, i went on pinterest to find a yummy easy salsa.
easiest one i could find:
chili's copycat salsa.
easiest aka i actually have all the ingredients on hand

holy hannah it's our new favorite salsa!!!!!
and so gosh darn easy!
here's the recipe:

Chili's Copycat Salsa Recipe:
(Recipe from Deals to Meals)

2 cans (14.5 oz each) whole tomatoes, drained
1 small (4 oz) can diced or whole jalapenos (not pickled)--about 4-5 jalapenos (or less if you don't like a lot of spice)
1/4 c. yellow onion, cut into quarters (you can also use dried minced onion)
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 to 1 tsp. salt (depending on how much you prefer)
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. lime juice

Place all of the ingredients together into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips.

here's the thing though.
the first time we made it, i felt like i put WAY too much onion in it.
casey LOVED it,
but we both felt like it was missing something...
the next day, it was AWESOME .
seriously, an exact replica of chili's.
we both really loved it and devoured it in one sitting.

a few days later i finally was able to go to the store and get more jalepenos to make more!
(we actually half our batch when we make it because we borrow my friends magic bullet)
well, i put the right amount of onions in this time, and i LOVED it,
casey didn't, he thought it was too tomatoey.
so we made a second little batch with more onion and he went back to loving it.
i'm so happy we have this around now,
 i eat this stuff like it's a slasa eating contest,
fa' realssssss

casey's too oniony but yummy to him salsa on bottom :)
yay for salsa!!!!!!
