Do you love Appetizers?? We kinda love them (A LOT!) in our family, and tend to think about them this time of year with the holiday celebrations and menus we have planned. We make a few for Christmas but make only appetizers for New Years Eve celebrations. I’m sure this year will be no different. I’ve already been thinking of fun appetizers to make and will be sharing my favorites with you over the next week or two.
The recipe I’m sharing today has been a favorite since moving to Texas. I mentioned in my Green Salsa post that I haven’t been able to find a really good salsa here just yet. Back in Arizona, we always bought El Sol Salsa, and since I can’t find that here I’ve had to experiment and try a few of my own. I have always loved Chili’s Salsa and started with this Chili’s Salsa Recipe from HERE and made a few changes. After making it several times now I think I have it just perfect and will be making it for Christmas dinner next week AND New Years Eve. 🙂
If you love the Chili’s Salsa recipe as much as we do, then you’ll love it too!! Even my dad said it tasted just like it… and he can be very picky! 😉
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 - 14.5 oz. can tomatoes and green chilies
- 1 - 14.5 oz. can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
- 4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned,diced, not pickled)
- ½ tsp. onion powder
- ½ tsp. garlic salt
- ½ tsp. minced garlic
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 2 whole roma tomatoes
- Place all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until all combined.
So excited to make this again next week (and the week after that).
I may be also making one of these too:
All are family favorites as well!
