Delicious Dish Tuesday Easy Spicy Salsa

 photo 0081_zps2e3d3145.jpg

     We love salsa and anything spicy!!  So when a co-worker brought in some yummy salsa to work I just had to have the recipe.  It was so super easy to make.  I have made it many times and it is so good.  We like it spicy, but it can be adjusted if you don't.  I have to thank my friend and co-worker Laurie for sharing this recipe that she came up with.

1 - can El Pato Sauce (small yellow can)
1 - can Rotel (Hot if you like it spicy)
1 - can tomato sauce (small)
1 or 2 green onions
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeno (leave in all seeds if you like hot)
1 handful of cilantro
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Juice from half a lime squeezed
salt & pepper to taste
(Optional: add some Mexican oregano)  I have not added this to my salsa because I have not had any, but my friend says it adds to the flavor.

Throw all these ingredients into a blender and blend until all chopped and mixed well.  I usually chop up the onions, garlic, and jalapeno before adding.  Then serve with your favorite tortilla chips or anything you like salsa on.

I'd love to hear if you tried this and what you think.  Do you have a favorite salsa recipe?

  1. It tasted great but a little bit too hot for my liking. Maybe I will make it sans jalapeno next time.

  2. El Pato is the best, EVER. This looks interesting! I'll have to try it; We love HOT foods too! :)
    Thanks for linking up mama!! <3

  3. The hotter the better if you ask me! Thanks so much for linking up with Delicious Dish Tuesday. I have featured you in my post this week :)
