Simple Salsa

Today I made salsa the lazy way. I used canned tomatoes and chopped very little. I may have done little work but enjoyed this salsa in a big way.

To be honest, I am not a huge fan of salsa, but this simple recipe will definitely curb a salsa craving. Andrew, on the other hand, loves salsa and enjoyed this recipe.

Check out the recipe:

Ingredients:
– 1 can (796 mL) diced tomatoes
– 1 can (540 mL) diced tomatoes – spicy red pepper
– 1 small onion
– 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro
– 1 tsp of minced garlic
– 1/4 tsp of sugar
– 1/4 tsp of cumin
– dash of salt
– 1/2 of a lime (juice)
– 1/4 cup of jalapeño peppers (from bottle)

Directions:
– Open caned tomatoes and pour into the food processor.
– Chop onion and cilantro and add into the food processor.
– Add the rest of the ingredients into the food processor, then pulse 8 to 10 times.

This recipe made three mason jars full of salsa. It looks like a Mexican fiesta is in order soon!

Cold Lobster Dip

This is a treat at Christmas time, but the summer time works too!

I love lobster and I love dips!
I had frozen lobster in my freezer so I thought why not make a dip with it.
What you will need:
-2 cups of lobster (or however much you want)
-4 oz of mayonnaise
-4 oz of chili sauce
-1/4 of onions (or however many you want)
-1 pack of cream cheese (light)
-1/2 tsp of hot sauce (to your own preference)

I took out the lobster from the freezer, thawed it out over night in the fridge, then the next day, cut it up in to small pieces and patted it dry. You do not want the lobster to be wet when making the dip because the dip will be runny.

Next, I mixed the chili, mayo, hot sauce, onions, and cream cheese together. Once I mixed those ingredients together I mixed in the lobster. This image is of all the ingredients, minus the lobster.

Et voilà, done! So, so easy!

This dip should be served cold, so put it in the fridge for a bit before serving. Serve the dip with regular chips or crackers. Also feel free to add less or more of any of the ingredients. Enjoy!
