Snackin’ on Salsa with Jessica Pietri

Well we’ve got a special post for you guys today, our first guest post on Eat a Duck. Jessica Pietri of Pietri Photography and the blog Tired Yet Inspired, also happens to be quite the gastronome. She’s whipped up a great salsa recipe that’s sure to get your juices flowing. Hopefully this will be the first of many guest appearances as we try to get the community involved in an effort to share our food related experiences!

Chips and salsa, it’s the perfect snack!  I love that I pretty much always have the ingredients for this recipe.  It’s so quick and honestly, too easy. 

What you will need:

• 2 Cans (14.5 oz) of Whole tomatoes, Drained

• 1 Can (4 oz.) of Diced Jalapeños (I only use half a can.  My child can scarf down a whole bowl of salsa on her own and I don’t want to take any chances with it being too spicy for her little tummy.)

• ½ Cup of Yellow Onion

• 1 Teaspoon of Garlic Salt

• 1 Teaspoon of Salt

• 1 Teaspoon of Cumin

• ½ Teaspoon of Sugar

• 1 Teaspoon of Lime Juice

• Cilantro (I never measure this part out.  I use a decent amount though, because my family loves cilantro.)

Put all of your ingredients into a food processor and puree to a smooth consistency.  Serve with tortilla chips. 

This post also gives me a chance to mention how much I LOVE my Ninja Master Prep food processor.  This food processor/blender does everything I need it to.  I use it to make salsa, hummus, smoothies, soup, everything!  The blades are mega sharp (I’ve learned my lesson while being careless while cleaning them).  It literally takes seconds to puree/blend anything I put in it.  What I loved most was the price.  I was very doubtful when I saw it on sale, but I’m cheap so I got it anyway.  It completely impressed me and it still does every time I use it!

What’s your favorite quick go to snack?
