How was your fourth of July!? Did you eat good foods and see the fireworks? We did! We actually planned to have some people over, but due to an emergency situation, they couldn’t come…so it was just us enjoying all the good cookin! This year I just wanted to do something a little more creative than the typical hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. I wanted to do kabobs! I skewered everything from fruit to shrimp and bacon and threw it on the grill. We had BBQ meatballs, Hatch green chili salsa with chips and apple pie for dessert. Also one of my new favorite alcoholic drinks includes Coconut Malibu Rum and V8 Tropical splash! What should we name this drink!?
It should totally have a name! If you can think of a good one leave me a comment below!
Anyway for this post I thought I’d share the recipe of the hatch green chili salsa I made for the fourth. Now I already have a salsa recipe on here, but this has different ingredients. My blender salsa is spicy. This salsa I’m featuring today is mild, but very addictive! You can’t just have one chip filled bite. I mean if you can, then there’s something wrong with you.
- 4 or 5 tomatoes on the vine (roma or beef steak)
- lime juice
- 1 can of hatch green chilis
- 1/2 an onion
- garlic powder or garlic salt
- Chop all the ingredients above!
- I start first with the onions because I like them in smaller finer chunks. (with the onions I will chop them then use a wind up chopping bowl to make the pieces even smaller.
- I'll add the can of drained chilis and cilantro to the chopping bowl and wind some more.
- Last I will chop up the tomatoes and add it to the mix above.
- squeeze one long squirt of Silas lime juice into your bowl, add salt and garlic powder to taste.
- Taste test with a chip to make sure it meets your salsa to onion/chili ratio standards, then pop in the fridge to cool for at least an hour. (When you let the salsa cool all its juices mix together and creates a devouring appetizer that will not last long)
- Depending on the consistency you like your salsa, you can put it in a blender or food processer, Just keep in mind it won't be chunky or look like the above picture. I just really like some salsas chunky, but the taste will be the same either way you make it incase you are afraid of chopping a thumb off. ;)
Enjoy! Oh and don’t forget the chips!! 😉
