Homemade Salsa

I feel like I start my blog posts in the same way every day: It is {fill in the day}. That’s simply boring. So I am not going to do that today. Instead, I am going to tell you that my house feels empty now that Nick and GP are both gone. It’s weird to have somebody leave after being here for a couple of days; routines change and I like to believe I adapt pretty well. It’s nice to talk to somebody other than Pippy every day.  Plus, GP is incredible to talk to.

I have had the pleasure of knowing some pretty brilliant people; I’m glad I’m dating one of them & he happens to know a couple of others. Life is so much better with smart people to talk to – I am not being a jerk, either. But when you have similar world interests or are intrigued by something or somebody, life becomes more interesting and less boring.

Over the weekend I got this brilliant idea to make Homemade Salsa. I mean, it was the Super Bowl on Sunday and I had two men to feed; who were also going to be drinking beer.  Really what could be a better addition to a case of beer than Homemade Salsa & Chips?

This is an INCREDIBLE recipe. If you consider making salsa, USE THIS RECIPE!

Recipe Adapted from One Particular Kitchen

  • 12 roma tomatoes
  • 10 to 12 Serrano peppers, remove caps
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 ½ cup cilantro


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Halve the tomatoes and onions. Lay cut-side up on a cookie sheet along with the peppers and garlic

  • Roast until the onions are nice and translucent, tomatoes are soft and peppers are getting a nice char on them
  • Remove and let everything cool a bit, then run everything through the food processor with the lime juice, salt and cilantro
  • Stir it together and EAT, EAT, EAT!

This salsa made it one day. There was no hope for it to last more than 24 hours. I am being completely serious. If you are a salsa and chip eater, DOUBLE THIS RECIPE! You will thank me later. Plus, it’s easily stored in a mason jar in your refrigerator, so you don’t risk loosing anything!

I hope you give it a try!

Until Next Time,

Happy Creating
