Salsa By The Two’s

I won’t ever be a food blogger, but I have learned a lot about cooking and I really enjoy it.  There are a few recipes that I always get a request for, so I thought I would share a few.  This is my fresh Salsa.  It’s fantastic.  My favorite.  I have worked on this recipe enough to know that I very nearly have it perfect and I know you will enjoy it.

You need: 12-Roma Tomatoes 2-Yellow Onions 2-Limes (juiced) 2-Cups of Cilantro 2-Jalapenos Salt to taste (Now you see why I call it Salsa by the 2’s-easy to remember right?) I have a food processor and I use it because I am lazy.  You could chop everything and it would be delightful as well. First– in the processor mix the onions, jalapenos, cilantro and lime juice. I don’t know why, but I read somewhere a long time ago that this should be done first. I have tried it both ways and this does seem to give it more flavor.  Add salt and stir. (more salt than you think you will need) FYI… the longer you leave the jalapenos on the counter after picking-the hotter they are.  You probably knew this already but I learned by doing it, so I just thought I would share.  You can add more, or let them sit if you like it hotter-up to you. Second: process the tomatoes and stir, adding more salt to taste. (Hey look at that-a two-step process-“Go 2’s, Go 2’s” waving pom-poms!!)

After just 2 days we only had this much left.  I promise you will love it.  Let me know if you try, and if it works for you too!
