Simple & Delicious Homemade Salsa

Posted on

You will Stop buying the jar stuff once you taste this homemade salsa. Simple and delicious: Chop 5-6 Roma tomatoes,1 small onion and 1/2 cup fresh Cilantro. Mince 2 seeded Serrano or Jalapeno peppers and 1 clove of garlic. Add 2 Tbsp. Freshly squeezed lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Put everything in a bowl. That’s pretty much it. I’d suggest you let it sit for at least an hour, but preferably over night. The longer the better, as the flavors get a chance to permeate over time.

This tasty Spicy Pumpkin Hummus is sure to be a hit this fall, with the perfect hint of spice to give your taste buds a kick, but feel free to add more cayenne pepper if you want it even spicier; as with any hummus recipe, the ingredients can be adjusted until you get the flavor you like!

spicy pumpkin hummus

Makes about 2 ½ cups of hummus

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons water

3 tablespoons tahini

1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

spicy pumpkin hummus

1 teaspoon cumin

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste

3 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:

Place chickpeas, garlic cloves, lemon juice, water, and tahini in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add pumpkin and seasonings and blend until well incorporated. With the motor running, drizzle in olive oil until blended.

Taste, and adjust any seasonings to your taste (I added a bit more lemon juice, salt, and cayenne).

Optional Crackers to Serve with the Hummus:

Flour tortillas

Cooking spray

Garam masala, cumin, salt

Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut desired amount of tortillas into chip-sized triangles. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle the tops with the seasonings. Bake until crispy, 6 to 8 minutes.
