Aka the very best blender salsa I’ve ever had! Aunt Lillian isn’t even my aunt but her salsa is so stinking good I’ve gotta give her credit. My girl Ashley shared the recipe with me a couple of weeks ago when she did my hair. Actually, while my color was lifting she busted out chips and salsa to snack on (perks of your hair stylist working from in her home). It was so good I didn’t even hesitate to ask for the recipe.
This really only takes five or so minutes to make. Unless you have a three year old helping you! Miles decide to play loaded questions and our five minutes salsa turned into 20 minutes salsa. I think it’s funny he still doesn’t like the sound of the blender though. We’ve been using it for years but he covers his ears nearly every time we turn it on. Love this little helper!
You might just want to drink this stuff. If you want it to really have some kick, add more chile arboles. The first time I made it I used 4 and my mouth was on fire immediately. Soooo I definitely haven’t done that again, but you can make it as spicy as you guys like it! Two chile arboles gave it just the right kick for me. Still too much kick for the boys but they don’t like anything spicy. At all.
If you know me, you know I could eat chips and salsa for every meal. That’s basically what I’ve been doing, hence the reason I’ve made it three times in two weeks. And it makes a lot! We eat it on eggs, tacos or salads. Brett drinks it. We’re obsessed!
