If the dads in your life enjoy spicy foods, this may be a good one to put on the table Sunday.
OR, make a big batch (double the ingredients) and deliver it in a jar tied with a “manly” bow accompanied by a large bag of chips.
You will need:
1 can diced tomatoes
1 bunch of cilantro
1 serrano pepper (use jalapeno if you prefer less heat)
1 clove garlic
a few squirts lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
one small sweet onion, finely chopped
I make this in my Magic Bullet, but you can prepare it in a food processor, blender, or just in a bowl if you don’t mind lots of chopping. In blender place half to two-thirds the can of tomatoes.
Store the rest of your cilantro like this, with a plastic bag over the leaves, in the refrigerator. It will last for weeks this way!
Add one serrano chile, chopped in a few chunks.
Add garlic and blend until the chunkiness you desire.
