A box in my basement holds artifacts from failed relationships. You won't find love notes, pictures, or gifts from former girlfriends, but you will find books and cassettes, all possessions I borrowed from old flames. Someday I expect to find a former girlfriend at my doorstep demanding her Less Than Zero movie soundtrack and copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Such worries parade through my mind on a regular basis. It's tough being muddywaters.
Today's salsa recipe is from a coworker who got it from his ex-girlfriend.
Anyway, today I want to talk about ex-girlfriends and recipes. Until I met my wife, I never had a girlfriend who was skilled in the kitchen, so sadly I don't possess any recipes from ex-girlfriends. However, I know that there are individuals out there who've acquired recipes from exes.
At The Greasy Skillet, we like to make fresh salsa in the summer. We eat a lot of pico de gallo, mango salsa, and black bean and corn salad. If we buy a canned salsa from the grocery store, we prefer Senor Stan's, a product of Lawrence, KS.
Since I hate spending $3.00 for a jar of salsa when I can produce a similar product for half the price, I use my coworker's ex-girlfriend's sala recipe.
- 1 can of regular Ro-Tel
- 1 can of Mexican Ro-Tel(It contains lime juice and cilantro)
- Simply place the ingredients in a blender, pulse 10-12 times, and you're ready to serve.
- If you want to doctor the recipe to your taste, feel free to add the following: salt, sugar, cilantro, onions, or peppers.
Clean out those closets,
PS. . . In the exhaustive research I did for this post, I found a book titled The Ex-Boyfriend Cookbook: They Came, They Cooked, They Left (But We ended Up with Some Great Recipes).
