Here's MY recipe....
here's my friend , BARBARA'S, recipe....
another 'best i've ever eaten'.....
3 teaspoons of Jalapeno Peppers (I use pickled slices in a jar but can use fresh)
1 large can of whole tomatoes, mostly drained
Fresh chopped onion...I use about 1/2 of a LARGE onion
1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic (in a jar) or 1-2 cloves of fresh...
2 cups fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
garlic salt to taste
garlic powder to taste
CHOP peppers, add tomatoes, with most of the liquid drained off and blend well
Then add onions, garlic, cilantro and spices to taste and blend again.
Adjust seasonings to your taste, if necessary.
AND....if I'm not just STUFFED TO THE VERY TIP TOP....
I just MIGHT be persuaded to try the PASSIONATE RITA on this menu..."a sweet and fruity blend..."
I hope you have a fabulous dinner tonight...with all the delicious fare being presented to us today, we are all just starving flat to death here...
Hmmmmm, wonder if I need to make RESERVATIONS at our best Mexican restaurant for tonight!!
