Easy Salsa for Cinco De Mayo

Written by Diana - May 5, 2011 3 Comments

What are your Cinco De Mayo plans?  How easy is it to make salsa?  I’ll show you a few easy steps and you’ve got a quick snack.

Peppers – rough chopped

Tomatoes – rough chopped

Onions – rough chopped

Throw it all into a food processor, along with a hot pepper (if desired) a splash of apple cider vinegar and a touch of salt.

Cover with lid

Pulse until it’s the consistency you like….

Stop here (or if you like continue)

For Guacamole –

Slice Avocado in half.

Twist the two halves apart.

Smack the knife into te pit  and twist to remove the pit.

Twist the knife to help pop out the pit.

Score Avocado in both directions on both halves.

Scoop out into a bowl.

Add Salsa and mix together.

Voila – takes longer to read this than to actually do it.  Happy Cinco De Mayo.  Add herbs, lime or anything else you want.  This is my really fast worknight version that my kids, my husband and I love to nosh.

Oh yeah – and there are leftovers…
