the BEST salsa and a gift...

Chips and Salsa are staples at our house,
 and Detail Boy has perfected his favorite recipe...


Original Rotel Diced Tomatoes, Onion, Cilantro, Oregano 


Time: 3 minutes! 
Place all ingredients into blender or food processor.
If you'd rather cut your onion up
  because you'd never want to follow your mom's suggestion to just plop it in
that works. 


He prefers no stems. (Detail Boy is so fitting!) Either way is fine.
Add oregano to taste,  1/2 - 1 tablespoon.


We like it a little thick but not too chunky, blend to your liking.


Enjoy!


Here's a fun gift idea if you have a salsa lover in your family, we included:
Homemade Salsa, Chips, Hot Tamales, Tabasco, and a
Chipotle Gift Card  


Detail Boy wanted me to be sure and disclose the recipe was handed down
 courtesy of his friends, salsa connoisseurs, John and Ty.

Simplicity at it's BEST!

I love salsa, and this does look particularly good. I will endeavour to recreate it following Detail Boy's strict instructions. Not easy when we don't have Rotel tomatoes here!

We too are salsa fans. I've tried creating it from scratch with our garden vegetables, but this looks much easier and quite tasty! (and I may not smell like garlic for a week after) Love the gift basket idea!

That is funny about DB and the stems….he is meticulous! :)

I love 4 ingredients, easy recipes....looks great!!..I am such a salsa of any kind fan!!..

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Yep, pinning this one! I always try to get my kids to strip the leaves off of the cilantro...so tedious! They fizzle out after a few stems. Love that you can just throw it all in the blender!

I could live off of chips and salsa. So yummy! I'll have to give your recipe a try. Cute gift idea, too. I never know what to give the men/uncles in our family...this would be perfect!

Great recipe and I love that "Detail Boy" made it himself. Many years down the road, I see him with a very happy wife who will love that he cooks!

Lori said...

I'm definitely going to try DB's recipe, and how sweet that he credits his friends...that tomatoe didn't fall far from the vine!

thanks for sharing this one! We used to use Rotel to mix with a melted block of Velveeta to make a con queso dip, but never thought of this! Guess what we're having this weekend? Yum! We have a great margarita reccipe in the blender too. We call it "What's my name? Margritas, because after just one, that is what you'll be saying with a smile on your face! Fun!

Chips and salsa might be my most favorite snack and I want some right now. I always make guacamole but I don't think I've ever made my own salsa (except for a black bean salsa) - this looks very authentic.

Yum. Tell that Detail Boy of yours he's wonderful!
