Salsa is definitely a family favorite snack and ingredient for meals. This past summer, with all of our fresh tomatoes, Troy and I canned about 30-40 jars of salsa. We have been enjoying it during the fall and winter. We use it in cooking and for a snack of chips and salsa.
For my dad's birthday this past November, we went up north to my parent's farm for a hunting weekend. My siblings and I were each assigned to bring different things (salads, snacks, etc.). My brother brought something that I had not seen before: Del Monte diced mangoes. These mangoes come in a can and can be made into a delicious salsa.
I love mango but they can definitely be a pain to cut, especially into nice little diced chunks. With these mangoes, we can make a healthy fruit salsa in just a couple of minutes. My brother added lots of onion and spice to his mango salsa and it was a hit.
We also had leftover salsa which my dad creatively made into a breakfast soup which he served my mom and I on my birthday a few days later. It was very good.
My baby loves watching football which is so funny because Troy and I barely watch it. She has watched it with 2 of her grandpas and cannot stop staring- must be all the moving around and colors. If your kids are a bit older, they may be bored with the game and you can throw on a DVD for them such as the new "The Book of Life" DVD which will be available at Walmart on 1/27.
This salsa is great because it is tasty and only takes about 2 minutes to make! How easy is that?
