Jon's Homemade Salsa (video!)

We practically drink salsa in our house and go through at least a jar a week (most of the time we have multiple jars open for "salsa bar") but Jon is never fully satisfied with store bought salsa. Most store bought salsas can be watery, too tomato-y or not spicy enough. My 2 favorite store bought salsas are Great Value (Wal Mart brand) Black Bean & Corn and Clint's Medium. Now for all you Texans out there, you know there is nothing better than Chuy's Tex Mex salsa. Well. My Italian stallion hubby makes a mean salsa that tastes a lot like Chuy's (I think Jon's is way better!). Check out Jon's first vlog as he shows you how to make some kick ass salsa.

Ingredients
Tomatoes
Cilantro
Onion
Jalepeno pepper
Garlic powder 



 The final product


Now I just need to find a way to make a fat free version of Chuy's Jalepeno Ranch Dip...

I love homemade Salsa -- I will have to post my recipe. Once all my tomatoes start getting ripe I will be a salsa making machine! Mmm. You made me crave some salsa really bad!

hey Ruthie, try making the jalepano ranch with yogurt instead of mayo, a healthy and yummy alternative:)
