Oscar Party Dips

What are you serving for your Oscar party?  I have for you 3 freshly made dips to serve with tortilla chips, pita chips or just plain ole crackers!

Here is the first one!


Here's how to make the freshest salsa you've ever tasted!

The Players!

Drain the tomatoes. chop onions and jalapeno, toss in your food processor along with the garlic powder and lemon juice.  Pulse until well blended. (save cilantro until the end as it will over blend and you will have a funny color of salsa).

Taste, add salt to adjust seasoning. Add cilantro and begin to pulse.

Re taste at this point and see if you need to add more heat, 
if so add more jalapenos.

Fresh and easy to make.  Happy Dipping!

The Recipe:


2 quart jars of tomatoes or 2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
¼ cup onion chopped
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon jalapeno chopped, more if you like it hotter
¼ cup cilantro, rough chop
½ teaspoon kosher salt

Place all ingredients except for cilantro in food processor and pulse until smooth.  Now add salt and cilantro.  Pulse until well incorporated.  Taste and adjust seasoning.  Pour into airtight container and chill until ready to serve.

Happy Eating!
