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
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?
