Looks like homemade salsa....

I'm not sure why my brain never thought of this idea, but sadly....it didn't!
This is the creation of my wonderful friend, Cheryl, who is an amazing cook!

We had a homeschool Mom's night and she brought this amazing looking salsa.
When we asked her how she made it, she said that she just "spruced up" jar salsa!

Here's what you'll need.....


I started with corn, red and green pepper and tomatoes.
I also added some black beans and Cheryl suggests fresh cilantro.....I never
have fresh spices, but if you do....add them!  She says the are the best part!


I just chopped the veggies that I had leftover in my fridge....many times I get 
the $0.10 and $0.25 ones off the "not-so-fresh" veggie table at our local country store....
that's mainly what I put in my "homemade" salsa.



The salsa was a healthy part of this beef taquitos meal....I'll share that recipe with you 
later in the week!



Doesn't it look like it's made from scratch!

My dad went through a homemade salsa kick, but he food processed his! I like the look of the vegetable chunks better! Here's a hint: If you have some spice in there, and you want a little more, leave the salsa in a container in the fridge to ferment for a few days, then it will be a little spicier!

Looks delicious, will have to try this since fresh tomatoes are hard to find right now. I was also a homeschool Mom, my son is now a senior in college. I do miss it!
have a great day,
