My cousin Debbie invited my dad and me up to Salt Lake City yesterday for dinner. In addition to enjoying some wonderful family time, we had a delectable meal of chicken enchiladas, Mexican rice, refried beans, chips and salsa, and coconut cake. Though all the food was delicious, I thought the salsa was particularly good and unusual in that it had a slightly sweet taste to it. So I asked Debbie for the recipe. It doesn't require any fresh ingredients other than fresh cilantro, so it could be made any time of year.
2 cans diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons dried minced onion
1 tablespoon dried minced garlic
2 mounded tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup lime juice, fresh or reconstituted
Combine ingredients in blender and pulse until the salsa reaches the desired consistency. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes. Just before serving, add 1 bunch finely chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips.
