    My Santa Fe Salsa is awesome (if I do say so):

    bell peppers of varying colors (2)

    lots of cilantro

    black beans (1 can)

    tomatoes (2)

    frozen corn (1 bag)

    red onion (1/2--optional)

    salt, pepper, lemon juice

    mix all together (don't defrost the corn!). Something in the undrained black beans defrosts them and makes it taste awesome! And it last in the fridge for up to a week. It's good as a dip or even a garnish on anything (fish/meats/omelets). Enjoy!

  • Those all sound good. I'll share the recipe for this morning's salsa:

    7 little serrano peppers from our garden, 7 cloves of garlic, lightly brushed with olive oil, broiled at 500 degrees then peeled.

    7 fresh tomatoes from our garden, parboiled and skins peeled, half a red onion, ounce of cilantro leaves - no stems- half of a red bell pepper. half of the mixture blended at lowest speed of blender for three seconds, the other half of the mixture chopped fine by hand.

    For a thicker puree, drain juice out of your tomatoes before blending, and blend most of it.
