Five Minute Salsa!
by J. J. Cannon
Want fresh salsa fast? When there’s no time for scoring, blanching, peeling and dicing ROTEL is my “go-to” staple. The beauty of combining these cans of muy deliciosoness with a few other fresh ingredients is that your salsa is perfectly seasoned when it’s done.
You can literally throw this together, then sit back and smile a secret smile as your family, friends…even salsa aficionados are impressed! I can personally guarantee at least one “Did you make this?” – especially if you live on the East Coast :).
The recipe below will make a large batch of salsa you can share.
Ready, set, GO!
2 cans ROTEL Original
2 cans ROTEL Mexican Lime & Cilantro
1 large (deep green) Jalepeno
1 bunch scallions (6-8)
1 bunch cilantro
1 clove garlic (optional)
Thoroughly wash and rough chop (nothing fancy!) jalepeno, scallions, cilantro & garlic. In blender or large mixing bowl (you will need hand blender) combine all ingredients and puree! ROTEL’s tomatoes are perfectly seasoned already, so no need to add extra salt!
Yes, that’s it – Done. Fin. (No, I am not bi-lingual, I totally looked that one up.)
Now bust out your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy!
Let me know what you think!
