My Name Is Snickerdoodle: 5 Minute Salsa

5 Minute Salsa

I am not one to turn down chips and salsa!  I mean, who can?  Whenever we eat out at a Mexican restaurant, I typically ruin my meal by overeating those salty and crispy chips along with that flavorful salsa.  And don't even get me started on guacamole!!! 
This salsa is a family favorite!  So easy and simple to make and oh so delicious!  | My Name Is Snickerdoodle

I am not a fan, however, of jarred salsa.  Maybe it's just because I've never found the right blend or brand, but I'd much rather take 5 minutes and just make my own.  And yes, I said 5 minutes!  Okay, more like 8 because sometimes I can't work my own can opener, but this is pretty dang quick salsa!

Everyone, and I mean everyone who I serve this to is over the moon for this salsa.  I remember I made it years ago and took it to a family dinner with all of my extended family.  One of my uncles parked himself in front of that bowl and just kept digging in.  He asked me what I put in it and when I got to the cilantro, he paused and replied, "I HATE cilantro!"  Then he kept on eating it because it's THAT good!

1 green bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, quartered

In a food processor (or blender) pulse together 2 cans petite diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chilies, bell pepper, garlic cloves, 2 green onions, cilantro, salt and sugar.  Make sure your bell pepper and garlic are finely chopped.  Pour into a large bowl and stir in 1 can petite diced tomatoes and remaining 2 green onions.  Serve immediately.  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated.  It will last about 2 weeks in the fridge if it's not already gone by then!
