Are you ready for it?

I want to share my new recipe for
Cilantro Salsa with all of you. I don't
know if you have ever tried Baja Fresh's
Salsa, but that is what I was shooting for
when I created this recipe. In my humble
opinion, IT IS AWESOME!!! That is why
I have chosen to call it Salsa Cielo,
Salsa Heaven!!!
Salsa Cielo
1 can Rotel (I used mild)
1 can diced peeled tomatoes
2 Tbsp. olive oil
dash of black pepper
dash of salt
1 Tbsp. of red pepper flakes (more if desired)
3 cloves minced garlic
1 bunch of cilantro (leaves only, no stems)
Add everything except the cilantro into your
Cuisinart and pulse until the consistency
you prefer. Add cilantro leaves and pulse
a few times until they are well chopped.
Store in an air tight container in the
fridge. Best if eaten within 3 days.
My family gives this salsa 2 thumbs up.
Trust me, I hate tomatoes and regular
salsa, but this is divine! ENJOY!!!

Yum! but what is Rotel?

This is for Audrey and any others with Rotel questions:
Rotel is sold in the canned tomato section. It is basically a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies. You can increase the picture on my blog by clicking it to see the can closer up. Hope that helps! Seriously, it makes one delicious salsa!!!

I use Rotel a lot. I will post another recipe using it soon, so buy up lots!!!

Sounds yummy!

Sounds great. I always make salsa out of fresh tomatoes and peppers. Do you think it could be adapted?

Looks delish!!

Oh and I noticed that Audrey asked what Rotel is...

Did you know that you can not get Rotel in some states? Can you imagine? I found out when I went to the post office with my friend, Amy. She was mailing Rotel to a friend in New York because they don't have it there. Poor people. I feel for them-can you imagine never having Rotel dip?
