Homemade Salsa

My daughter Amy was fixing lunch for our family to have a picnic outside. Her heart was set on tacos. She worked hard to feed her family. She had to thaw the hamburger, cook it and then create a taco spice blend. She sliced the olives, mashed the avocado for guacamole, and she made homemade salsa. (her mom didn’t have a stash in the fridge)

I was so proud of her. She did all of this because she wanted too. We all enjoyed the Spring weather but most of all I enjoyed being the mom of this brilliant 11 year old.

Homemade Salsa

1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained

1 fresh Jalapeno peppers, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

2 Tablespoons lime juice

3 cloves garlic, peeled

1 Tablespoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

1teaspoon pepper

3 dashes hot sauce

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse 3-10 times.

If you have a child who loves to cook, allow them to the spread their wings and serve you lunch. They can very well surprise you.

To your best health,

Coach Nancy
