For the Salsa

  • 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 10 oz ca Rotel
  • 1/4 cup white onion chopped
  • 2 fresh jalapeños
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • juice of 1 lime

For the Baked Chips


For the Salsa

  • Place fresh jalapeños on a grill on med-high heat (we use a stovetop grill or Mexican comal) and continue to turn until all sides are charred.
  • While the jalapeños are still hot, seal them in in a brown paper bag for just a few minutes to steam. Remove from bag and remove all the blackened peel and cut off the stem area.  (you may wish to use gloves when handling spicy peppers)
  • Place jalapeños and all other ingredients in a food processor or blender blend all ingredients to the desired consistency. If you would like chunky salsa, use the pulse button and turn it on several times until it's left chunky.

For the Baked Tortilla Chips

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a cookie sheet with the cooking spray
  • Place tortilla fourths in a single layer on sheet, spray the tops of the chips and salt to taste.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes turning the chips about halfway through. Bake until crisp
