What do you do when this . . .
. . . turns into this?
You make this!
Thanks to my very generous Mom and Dad and the people who invented Miracle Gro, I spent the better part of this evening making the 12 cups of salsa you see in the picture above. Yep, 12 cups. It's in my freezer right now, but I betcha it'll be gone in two weeks.
Here's my recipe, just in case you're in the same predicament I was in! Not only is it delicious, but it's easy, too!
5-6 large tomatoes
1 can Ro-Tel
2 T. garlic salt
2 T. green sauce (such as Herdez, Mrs. Renfro's, Embassa, etc.)
1 T. dried cilantro
- Blanch tomatoes by placing them in boiling water for 3 minutes, then immediately put them in ice water for 1 minute. The skin will fall right off. Cut the tomatoes into 1 inch chunks.
- Dice onion into small pieces. Saute in olive oil. Add the tomatoes to the onion.
- Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well. And if you're like me, blend the heck out of it so there are no chunks to be found anywhere!
