Most of you who read my blog come over from my daughter's blog. In fact, probably no more than two people would probably even come by here unless they hadn't already been to my daughter's blog . Thank you to all of you who come by to see Kelly's mom!

A day ago Kelly had mentioned on her blog about what you would eat if it were your last meal!
I dare say that if you were on death row and had a chance at a last meal, you would throw caution to the wind at that point and order "all-you-can-eat" kind of meal!
I like to think I will die of old age (like everyone else likes to think) and by then I probably won't be eating much or really care about having an Outback steak like Hubs mentioned in his "last meal" comment.
However, we do share a love for chips and salsa from Chili's that I noticed a number (probably hundreds) of people agreed also on their comments.
Hubs found a recipe for salsa on copykat.com that is very close, if not even better,than Chili's.
So we eat salsa nearly every day! Sometimes it's the whole meal on Sunday nights!
I made a picture of the ingredients above. I was out of limes, so play-like the lemon is GREEN, OK? You can do that, can't you? Just like I play-like I am having a big, juicy steak AFTER I eat my chips and salsa! (NOT)
This is really easy to throw together and makes about 4 cups. It is much better cold, so plan ahead! I can't believe I said that when we never eat Jello because I can't think that far ahead!!!
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can tomatoes and green chilies
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)
4 teaspoons jalapenos (canned, diced, not pickled)
** Special note: Hubs loves hot stuff. I do not. If you use fresh jalapenos, your tongue
and the roof of your mouth may suffer. Just sayin......
1/4 cup yellow onion (diced)
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
and this is not on the recipe but we add: 1/4 teaspoon cilantro and juice from 1/2 lime
1. In food processor place jalapenos (optional) and onion and process for just a few seconds.
2. Add both cans of tomatoes, salt, sugar, cumin,cilantro and lime juice.
3. Process all ingredients until well blended but do not puree.
4. Place in covered container and chill.
5. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!
