I just love the lazy days of summer, but alas, it seems they are nearing their end.
I wanted to share with you a summer recipe that has had us dippin' and lickin' our fingers many times! I will probably make it one more time for us before the rains come and I start thinking about roasted pumpkin seeds and apple farms!
This recipe is my variation on the Latin American Chismole:
2 tomatoes, chopped finely and mushily
1 smallish sweet onion, chopped extra fine
1 small bunch of cilantro, chopped fine
fresh cracked pepper
Chop ingredients with a chopper or food processor. Place in pretty bowl. Squeeze lime juice into mix. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Stir. Enjoy with tortilla chips or on tacos!
Optional: freshly minced garlic or a small bit of finely chopped jalapeno if you like zing! But don't make the mistake like me of touching the inside of the jalapeno. My fingers were burning for 2 days! If you'd like this dip to be more like salsa, add more tomatoes.
Simple and tasty, just the way cooking should be!
