Today is a busy, busy day. You too? I’m watching my friend’s kids for the day and will have six children all under the age of four. Fun, but busy. Our kids are the same ages within a few weeks; there are two kids who are four, two who are two, and two who are one or almost one. That is like having three sets of twins. Whoa!
Speaking of busy, I’ve been busy remaking and taking new pictures of recipes that I have in my index. I started blogging about food a few years ago just to keep track of my recipes. Now that I’m trying to be fancy I need to whip my photos into shape. Let’s be honest, some of those old pictures are terrible! I’m really excited to repost these recipes. They are lots of my tried and true, go-to recipes that I love. I hope you’ll like them too.
So here is my first blast from the past, revised!
Chunky Fresh Tomato Salsa recipe
Chunky Fresh Tomato Salsa
5 or 6 Roma tomatoes chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro chopped (around a 1/2 cup after chopping)
1/2 medium onion chopped
2 Anaheim peppers
1 jalapeno if you like a little heat, seeds removed
1 lime’s juice
1 clove garlic finely minced
lots of salt and pepper 1/2 t. of each or so
Mix everything in a bowl and enjoy.  If you have a few hours, mix it together and leave it on the counter top so the flavors will blend. Serve it with chips, in tacos, on top of enchiladas, or in your favorite salad.
Anaheim pepper are pretty mild with just a touch of heat. If you are super sensitive to spice, use a green pepper. And wear gloves when messing with that jalapeno!
This is so tasty with homemade baked corn tortilla chips if you have the time…

    How long will this recipe stay good in the fridge? I plan to keep it in a jar, but I’m trying to make the salsa for a recipe I’ll use up to a week from now

      I think it’ll be fine for a week. It has a lot of acid/salt to help preserve it and should be fine though the texture of the tomatoes deteriorates over time.
