Stacey's Salsa

Submitted by LindaOur front row friend and Stamp Club member Stacey is famous for her salsa. She is required to bring it to family gatherings and stamping events. When I tasted it the first time, I couldn't believe it wasn't 100% homemade. Since I had never made salsa before, I thought her recipe would be a good one to try. I like how the recipe suggests that the ingredients "get friendly" overnight. This means you can make your salsa the night before your own event.
Stacey's Salsa

28 oz. can Hunts tomato sauce
28 oz. can Hunts whole tomatoes
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch green onions chopped
2 jalapenos (deseeded and microwaved for 30 seconds)
1 Tablespoon salt
Several dashes cayenne pepper (7 - 8 shakes)

Mix whole tomatoes, cilantro, jalapenos, salt and cayenne pepper in blender. Pour mixture into a large bowl, add tomato sauce and chopped green onions and stir.

Best if chilled overnight so flavors can "get friendly".
