Moving on... I have since made this salsa many, many times (with great success, making it a winner in my book!) and I think I may have posted the recipe before but I couldn't remember, and when I made some last night I thought about posting it again. Then Janssen, Merrick, and Landen chose a "real food" topic for their Sisters Share It All series/linkup, so I was inspired to go ahead and post/repost. This isn't a "meal", per se, but give me a big bowl of this stuff and a bag of tortilla chips and I don't need anything else.
1 cup onion, finely chopped (you can make the pieces bigger if you like it chunky)
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
2 cans Rotel (I use mild or original, but you can get the hot kind if you like it hot... I don't)
1/8 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 tsp each)
I also throw in some garlic salt or even fresh garlic, but that is up to you!
Mix all ingredients and refrigerate (you can eat it right away, but it tastes better after all the flavors have mixed for a few hours.) Serve with tortilla chips and
Nom nom nom!
This is great to dip quesadillas into, or to stir (a couple of tablespoons) into pasta sauce for a little zing. I love putting it into glass jars to give as gifts. Who doesn't love salsa?
