Happy Cinco de Mayo! Time for some salsa!
Americans do not need a reason to celebrate other countries holidays or an excuse to have a margarita! Cinco de Mayo has been a longstanding celebration of Mexican American culture. Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the unexpected victory over the French Battle of Puebla. In the U.S, it is often associated with Mexican food and celebratory drinks! One of my favorite pairings to a good margarita, is salsa!
I wanted to share a simple salsa recipe that I have been making for years. Actually I named it Stupidly Simple Salsa because it literally is 5 ingredients and warrants trying before grabbing your favorite can from the shelf even for the most kitchen impaired chef! Fresh, flavorful and for less than $10, you can make twice the amount and with no added ingredients. If you can read and have a food processor, you are capable!
Stupidly Simple Salsa
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red pepper
1/4 cup cilantro
1 tsp salt
Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse till chopped well. As more salt to taste. Squeeze in a lime for added flavor and serve with your favorite chips!
