Winter Salsa

Thanks for the Secret Vanilla Sauce recipe Lori. Now I can put it on everything - ice cream, oatmeal, toast, pancakes, meatloaf... okay, well I might be weird, but not that weird. But it was really, really that Scrumptious!

So here it is ~Winter Salsa~
2 small cans (15 oz. each) Petite Diced Tomatoes Mexican Style
1 large can (28 oz) Petite Diced Tomatoes (regular, no seasoning)
2-3 jalepenos
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1-2 limes juiced (really just to taste, so do 1 at a time)
Salt (to your taste preference)
1 tsp. Ground Cumin (may add more if you prefer)
2 medium onions (or 1 lg. onion) chopped
1 small bunch of cilantro chopped (use more or less depending on your taste)

Mix all together and serve with your favorite tortilla chips! It tastes so fresh, you'll think it came straight from your garden... no kidding!

**Here's the fine print. If you really, really like onions make the salsa this way. If onions aren't your best friend in the entire world, I'd use 1/2 the onions here and a tbsp of dried onion flakes. In eating the leftovers the day after, the onions were really too overpowering... even for Chris. And I only used 1/2 of a large yellow onion in the batch I made. So Onion Carefully! :)

***On a side note, we had a fabulous meatloaf last night... like really, killer. I've posted the recipe on my blog. If you like meatloaf, Chris & I gave this recipe 5*!

Love and toodles to all! XOXO,
