Chips & Salsa.

My favorite snack of all time has got to be chips and salsa. Holy yum, I could eat it everyday! Garth and I have even eaten it as a meal. Our favorite place to get chips and salsa is Chili's. They have THE best salsa and the warm, crisp, slightly salted chips...AH-MAZING. So you can imagine my excitement when I found the recipe! I cannot wait to make it, mmmm.

1 (14 1/2 oz.) can tomatoes and green chilies
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned, diced, not pickled)

1/4 cup yellow onions (diced)
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar

1. In a food processor place jalapenos and onion and process for just a few seconds.
2. Add both cans of tomatoes, salt, sugar, and cumin.
3. Process all ingredients until well blended but do not puree.
4. Place in covered container and chill.
5. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!

Christie said...

When I saw the title for this post in my sidebar, it made my mouth water! I love chips and salsa too and Chili's definitely has good chips and salsa- we get it every time we go there! There was another place near us (Tijuana Flats) that had better chips, though you may not believe it, but they only had taco sauces to choose from, not good salsa. Hmm, I think I might need to grab some Tostitos and salsa tonight- it's not Chili's or Tijuana Flats, but it'll have to do!

I love eating chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants, it's always sooo good. The only problem is I tend to eat too much and am full when the real food arrives!
