Salsa recipes

When you don't have fresh tomatoes, but you're craving some salsa, try this recipe. 

Salsa mix in a jar

1 1/2 cup dried cilantro
1 tsp. garlic powder (more to taste)
1/2 cup dried chopped onion
1/4 cup dried red pepper flakes
1 T. Salt
1 T. pepper

Keep in bag or jar. To make, add 2 T. mix to 1 can Mexican style tomatoes (10 ounce can)

Another favorite salsa recipe that we like to make is this:

Black bean salsa

2 cans (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 ounce) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (10 ounce) diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 jar (7.5 ounce) roasted red peppers, drained and diced
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
4 green onions, finely chopped
2/3 cup minced fresh cilantro or parsley
2 garlic cloves minced
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. grated orange peel
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
Tortilla chips

Combine all ingredients except tortilla chips. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Serve with chips. Yield 8 cups.

Until next time!
