    Salsa Recipes

    Wanting to make some fresh salsa today, anyone have some good recipes? I don't mind a little kick to it either, just something not too hot in flavor though.

    Here's a recipe that I use regularly.

    1 bag of Baked Tostitos Scoops
    1 jar of Iowa's own Kramer's Medium Salsa
    1 serving bowl

    Re: Salsa Recipes

    Here's a really simple recipe that is hard to mess up.

    1 medium/large tomato - peeled and diced
    2 cloves of garlic - minced
    1 onion - chopped
    1 jalapeno pepper - seeds removed and diced
    1 lime - juiced
    1 bunch of cilantro - finely chopped
    salt and pepper to taste.

    Combine all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy.

    I like this recipe because it's not heavy on the tomato. too many salsas go way overboard on tomatos and you end up with basically spicy ketchup.

    For variation, I have included different kinds of peppers, pineapple, whole kernel corn, etc.

    I just made a fresh batch of black bean and corn salsa. Yummy. You will get applause for this one! It's great with chips or just as a side with about anything.

    Ingredients:

    2 15.5 oz cans of black beans
    1 11 oz can mexican corn with grn & red peppers
    7 oz can of chopped green chilis
    1 med onion chopped fine
    2 jalapena's chopped fine
    6 cloves garlic, chopped fine
    2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped fine
    2 very ripe avacodos chopped in small chunks
    2 medium tomatoes seeded and diced into fairly small chunks
    12 good cranks on the pepper mill
    celery salt and salt to taste
    Juice of a lime

    I usually shake about a half teaspoon of cayenne into the mix as well, but that's just me.

    Mix it all up really well and let stand overnight (covered) in your refrigerator.

    Re: Salsa Recipes

    I've made many salsas the couple years and I still think the Ball Blue Book has a pretty simple one in it that uses green onions instead of regular onions-check it out.
