Spicy Salsa

Seriously, so simple!

Spending time at the Farmer's Market has really helped to re encourage my love for cooking, but more importantly my love for making salsa from scratch with juicy tomatoes, fresh cilantro and red onion. I learned a thing or two while I spent some time living and studying in Mexico during college. Whenever I make this recipe, I always find that it disappears in almost the same amount of time takes to make! 

Prep time: 10 minutes

What you'll need:

1 mixing bowl
2 large tomatoes
1 red onion
fresh cilantro
1 lemon
chipotle peppers*
ground cumin
cayenne pepper*

Start off by cubing the tomatoes and add to mixing bowl. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice in mixing bowl with tomatoes. Chop up cilantro (no more than 1/4 cup) and cut the onion into slices and then again into small cubed pieces. (I usually use 2-3 slices of red onion about 1/2 an inch thick, not too much but just enough!) Add cilantro and onion to mixing bowl. Mix together and add salt, pepper, ground cumin (~1tsp) and cayenne pepper for extra spicy. 

I like to add in chipotle chilies. Which are dried, smoked jalapenos canned in a spicy tomato sauce, which is sometimes called adobo sauce. They are available in your grocery store in the Latin section and so incredibly delicious! 

After you've mixed all the ingredients, you can enjoy immediately or put in the fridge for a chilled snack later! Serve & eat with chips, but also delicious with eggs, chicken and even with pork.
