Homemade Salsa!
By Margaret Riley


Here’s a healthy snack for you to nibble on while painting! Purchase healthy tortilla chips (we like the sweet potato tortilla chips from Aldi’s) and dip away in this delicious salsa!
Note: For those of you that are going to make this a hot, hot salsa, please be advised to wear rubber gloves if you are going to touch the peppers or mix the salsa with your hands.


You'll need approximately 3-4 dozen ripe tomatoes, diced (if you don’t like the skin, drop tomato into hot water for 1-2 minutes and the skin will slide off)
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 cups chopped onions
2-3 jalapeno peppers (seeds removed…keep seeds if you want a fiery salsa!)
3/4 cup lemon juice
3-4 chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons salt (optional)
4 teaspoons black cracked pepper
5 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
1 tablespoon sugar

Mix all together in a 6-quart pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking. Fill hot jars leaving about 3/4” head space. Wipe off tops of jars before putting lids on. Screw lids tight. Process is hot water bath for 15 minutes. Remove from water. Cool.
