You can get the full recipe here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/01/restaurant-style-salsa/
I doubled mine because there are 30 people coming to this potluck and I didn't want to run out. Not that there aren't going to be 4 things of queso (I swear no one was reading my email of who was already signed up to bring what). I also did not use the Jalapeno. I was somewhat timid about cutting one and James ran off to the gym while I was doing this (he's the designated chef around here) so instead I used a can of Rotel w/Habanero's. Its not lacking in the spicy-ness.
Here's the finished product:
There are some benefits to making your own salsa. Cost is not one of them. I spent $10 on ingredients for a double batch, about the same price I would have paid for either a giant bottle of salsa at Costco or a couple of Jars at the grocery store. However, I'm super picky about my salsa. This is how I like it; runny! This is more of the consistency of a restaurant salsa than the super chunky stuff you get in the bottles. Also I can control the spicy-ness, or how much onion is in it *yuck*. Overall I like the taste. I think its missing a little something, maybe I should have put more cilantro? or Lime? Or sugar/salt? I just don't know. But I will probably keep making this and tinkering with it, until I get it just right.
Next up: Olive Oil Cakes with Lemon and Thyme. Sounds yummy.

Labor Signs? Baby is head down now, does that count?
Sleep? getting better, but I can only sleep on the right side of our bed, the left side just doesn't do it for me
Best moment this week? My "sprinkle" on Saturday! Good food, great friends a really good time!
Cravings? Cake and cupcakes are good
What I miss? How about what I won't miss. I won't miss having to walk a mile to the bathroom 10 times a day.
What I am looking forward to? Setting up the crib and re-painting the trim in the kid's room (they will be sharing)
Milestones? James finally, finally! got to feel lots of kicks and tumbles this morning.
