Sassy Salsa

Salsa homemade Collage 623x1024 Sassy Salsa

I just love me some good salsa, don’t you?  Especially when I can get my hands on fresh, ripe tomatoes…especially heirloom.  Our farmers market close by my house had the last of the bucket heirloom tomatoes just a month or so ago…yes, we still are growing them over here.  So I snatched them up…and made so many yummy and wonderful things with them…including this easy, fast and delicious salsa.

Paired with my Homemade chips below…you can’t beat this snack, appetizer or heck…add cheese and make it a meal of nachos!

1 jalapeño or 1 small can

Homemade Tortilla Chips

I like to take some of my leftover Homemade Tortillas and make chips with them.  And…I bake them y’all.  I know, I know…but I DO try and limit my fat intake somewhat.

This is so easy…..


Leftover Flour or Corn Tortillas (mine are flour)

Salt (I like the coarse sea salt variety-[easyazon_link asin="B00B42IJ56" locale="US" new_window="default" nofollow="default" tag="simplivisim09-20"]where to buy[/easyazon_link])


Cut your tortillas into equal pie sections.

Spread out on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with Pam.

Preheat oven to 350.

I like to salt my chips now…bake…salt again. Yes, yes I like salt!

Bake 10-12 minutes (flipping over to crisp other side half-way through)…watch these little guys.  They brown up and burn real fast.

  1. Yum, this sounds delicious Kat! I can’t wait for summer so I can make some salsa from scratch again :)

    PS – I am ADORING the whipped butter cream you sent me. My gardening hands thank you!

  2. To me fresh salsa just isn’t salsa without lots of fresh cilantro! And I hand chop all the componenets, but I like mine chunky. And FRESH peppers. I can buy jalapeno’s year round out the store. Canned don’t have the same bite, IMO. I use either lime juice or red wine vinegar…


I love to hear your thoughts, please share....
