Ideas from an Ex-pat Kitchen: Homemade Salsa

This recipe makes 2 of these size containers.
The search for a great Salsa recipe is OVER!! I have been on this quest for 2 long years now, ever since arriving in Chad and craving one of my favorite snacks of tortilla chips and salsa, and not being able to find salsa anywhere!! Eventually, I caved and bought a tiny jar for over $5 (a product that recently became available) but the taste was too sweet and it was ridiculously expensive....so.....I tried out a couple of different recipes that were all ok....but tasted too 'tomato-y' for my liking.....enter this new found salsa recipe! (Thank you Lisa!!!) You would be surprised at how little time this takes to make and how easy it is to make....AND....you can freeze it and save it for later (but you probably won't because it is so good you'll eat all of it before you get a chance to freeze it!) Now, enough talking about it....time to MAKE IT!

Salsa 

- 1 large can of diced tomatoes (750-800g)
- 2 Large onions (diced)
- 2 Large green peppers (remove seeds and dice)
- 1 Tablespoon Chili powder (for a medium heat)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic powder (or fresh garlic, minced)
- 2 Teaspoons sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Vinegar
- 2 Teaspoons Salt

Combine all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 45 min to 1 hour (depending on how thick or runny you want your salsa to be).

Stir occasionally.

Enjoy!

We like our salsa thick and chunky! Mmmm.

  1. It is an exhibition dedicated to fine watches and is hosted by the replica watches uk Saatchi Gallery in downtown London. This beautiful gallery was entirely reserved for all three days of the show and this meant that one could visit exhibitors on all three floors with booths set up in more than a dozen smaller and larger halls. The first of the three days was replica watches dedicated to an invitation-only VIP reception, held from 6pm until 10pm. Nonetheless, both following days were open to the public between noon and 6pm with tickets going for around £20 ($30) per day. I will admit replica watches that just a few hours before the official opening I was still wondering how successful the following days were going to be, how many people would rolex replica sale attend and how the exhibition will perform as an important forum that strives to bring watch making replica watches uk closer to its audience. Having said that, I never replica watches uk imagined anything quite like what it turned out to be.
