mmmonday {Spicy Salsa}

When I was younger, my family would come home from church on Sundays and pull out the Pace Picante Sauce.  We would add cheese to the salsa and warm it up in our new {giant} microwave. 

After I was married, we would buy Tostitos Restaurant Style Salsa.  It was delicious.  We would eat it cold, and it had a great flavor.

When we lived in Saratoga, we found a great fresh salsa made by Rico in Salt Lake City.  We usually got the mellow roasted, but when we were feeling extra crazy, we would get the Poco Loco. 

With the Rico salsa, we were forever changed.  We realized that we loved fresh salsa—sure it was a little more expensive, but we couldn’t go back.

Now, if you’ve followed along for a while, you know that I love a good deal {cheap or free}.  It pains me to pay too much for something, and salsa is no different.  A few times, I tried to replicate the Rico salsa with very bad results.  It seemed as though we were destined to have to run to the store for our salsa fix for the rest of time.

And then.


I found this recipe.

I tweaked it a little and {heavenly choirs singing}

It is so good.

So good that I may have eaten the sample I put in the dish to photograph for this blog post, when I realized that my camera battery was dead and I had to charge it for a minute…even though it is 7:30 in the morning. 


And it is waaaaaay less expensive.

So here you go—here is the recipe.  Free yourselves from grocery store salsa!
