Jesusita's House Salsa and Winner of Giveaway

For the past three weeks I have been participating in the  Cookbook Spotlight Cook Off and cooking from the fabulous soon to be published cookbook Muy Bueno.  Today I am announcing the winner of that cookbook giveaway which has been sponsored  by Hippocrene Books and hosted by Girlichef.

Many Thanks To Each and Everyone Who Put Your Name In The Drawing
I Wish Each One Of You Could Have A Book

The Winner Is
April Tuell

This Was One Of My Favorites From The Cookbook
Jesusita's House Salsa

Jesusita's House Salsa
Muy Bueno
Prepared By
Miz Helen's Kitchen
6 to 7 Anaheim chiles, roasted and peeled
1 or 2 jalapeno peppers, roasted (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 (1/4.5 ounce) can whole tomato
1/4 cup tomato sauce
In a food processor or blender, pulse the roasted and peeled chiles, jalapeno peppers, if using, salt, garlic, canned tomatoes, and tomato sauce for a few seconds.  You do not want to puree it- chunky is best with the flavorful salsa. This Salsa is a perfect appetizer with a basket of your favorite tortilla chips or as the base for several of their wonderful recipes! 
This has become a favorite Salsa at The Cottage, I sure hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
Thank you so much for participating in this cook off with me, we have had so much fun!  Hope you have a great week and come back to see me real soon!
Peace and Joy

  10. This looks like a really good salsa. Living in Honduras, this is their kind of food. I live here as a missionary and enjoy their food, even though I still prepare my PA dutch/American food. Thank you.

  16. This looks wonderful! We are in Arizona and so I don't think I've ever met a salsa I didn't like! I would love you to link this up to our recipe linky at Katies Language Cafe! ~~Katie
