New Year's Day Treat...

For fear of boring everyone out there in blogland, I am going to blog about something else besides jewelry this post. The only thing that could possibly be almost as interesting to me more so than jewelry,
 would be FOOD!
(I said almost) hee hee.
  Oh yes, I love to cook and I can make a mean salsa! My salsa is so good, that when I make it, hubby puts it on everything. But it was especially good this past New Year's Day on our black eye peas. Friends, this is a must try, because the textures and strong flavors of the salsa works great with the opposite texture and flavor of the peas. My recipe I will divulge...

Christine's Almost Famous Salsa

2  Large Tomatoes (cored and quartered)
1 Large Onion (peeled & quartered)
3 Large Cloves Garlic (peeled)
1 Jalapeno Pepper (halved & de-seeded)
1 Cup Fresh Cilantro (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon of Sea Salt
1 Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce (2 peppers if you want it spicy)

Pulverize all ingredients in a food processor and serve on EVERYTHING!

(the secret ingredient in this recipe is the Chipotle pepper and they are available in small cans on the ethnic food isle in all grocery stores.)

I made the black-eyed peas this year and skipped the salsa because I have given up trying to find any decent tomatoes this year. However, the peas just aren't the same without the salsa. I absolutely love salsa and your recipe looks fabulous.

Ah, someone else who knows the black-eyed pea tradition:) My daugther came up with a black-eyed pea dip for chips, which she said was a big success. I actually just finished a big slice of spinach quiche that I put salsa on:) But you're still making me hungry!
