Shuga’ Mommas: Fresh Salsa

One of the biggest complaints I have about living in the UK is the lack of Mexican food. It is often a hot topic of conversation amongst my ex-pat friends. What can I say? Americans LOVE Mexican food. Not long ago, I may or may not have made my husband go to the recently opened Chipotle in London. :)

After moving abroad, I desperately tried to recreate the Mexican food I had eaten in the USA -(Seriously, UK your country could be changed with one word: queso). I can’t say I’ve succeeded in every area, but thanks to the recipe of a dear friend of mine (a former graduate wife), Charlotte, I can at least enjoy a fantastic salsa!


  • 6 vine ripened tomatoes
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • jalapeno peppers (to taste – add more if you like it spicy)
  • garlic granules
  • bunch of cilantro
  • salt
  • lime

If you like your salsa smooth (like I do), then put all ingredients in a food processor or blender. If you like your salsa chunky, then chop everything and mix together.

Chop the 6 tomatoes, 4 spring onions, and jalapeno peppers, and put in food processor. Add can of chopped tomatoes. Blend until smooth. Add garlic granules, a bunch of cilantro, salt, and the juice of one lime, and mix together. I usually put mine in the fridge to cool down, but it can be served at room temperature.

Serve with tortilla chips, tacos, and margaritas.

What’s your favorite Mexican creation?

  1. Yes! Between this and my recent discovery of Monterey Jack cheese, I just might survive my Mexican cravings. Now, if we could just get a Chik-fil-A! :)
