I LOVE Salsa!!
Ever since I moved to Texas I haven’t been able to find a Salsa I really like (insert sad face here). Back home we would always get El Sol Salsa found at Sam’s Club, which is made by some family friends. We LOVE it!! Since I haven’t been able to find any at the stores I really like I’ve had to try and make some myself. Fortunately, I have Chili’s Copy Cat Salsa recipe down (which I will be sharing in the coming weeks) as well as a Sweet Salsa Verde recipe my sister made up. It is SO SO SO good. I could seriously drink it!! It took me awhile to find a place that sold Tomatillos in the can, but I finally found them at HEB and have been loving this Green Salsa recipe!! Best part is that most salsa recipes just require that you stick everything in the blender, which means it only takes minutes to make – my kind of recipe.
If you’ve ever had Salsa Verde then you know how stinkin’ delicious it is. Also know now that it is SUPER easy to make. SO glad my sis took the time to make a great recipe for it.
- 1 lg can tomatillos (about 20)
- 2-3 TB diced jalapenos
- ½ bunch cilantro
- ¾ cup sugar
- Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Do not add the juice from your tomatillo can. Add additional jalapenos for more spice or sugar for more sweet.
- Enjoy with tortilla chips. This dip is awesome with lime tortilla chips. Yum!
With it being Christmas I’ve also been thinking about Food Gifts, and this Salsa is perfect for it.
Turn this recipe into a gift just by throwing it in a jar and attaching a printable!!
It doesn’t need to be used just for salsa. It can be used for anything!! Attach it to a jar of candy or a box or plate of cookies.
To download just click on the image you want above, and then RIGHT-CLICK and SAVE. Then open it in a program like WORD, RE-SIZE, print and cut out. Super easy!!
I attached mine with some glue dots and added some ribbon around the lid. EASY!!
I also decided to make the tag into a printable so you can frame it or make it into a card. There are two versions. Just like above you click on the image you want below and then RIGHT-CLICK and SAVE. Then open it in a program like WORD, RE-SIZE, print and cut out.
I hope you like the Salsa recipe, and the tags… and the prints. I guess today’s post is a 3 in 1.
