Tio Cameron’s Salsa

101_5180Our entire family LOVES salsa.  Especially my super fabulous little brother, who happens to be my only brother.  And yes,  he really is super fabulous.  Of course, I probably wouldn’t have said that when we were growing up, as he could have won an award for the most annoying, and embarrassing brother ever to exist.  And don’t think he didn’t relish that award! 

Both my little brother, Cameron, and my twin sister, Kristin, are excellent home chef’s.  I’m always inspired by their culinary experiments that turn into prized family recipes.  One prized family recipe that has stood the test of time is my brother’s salsa.  Cameron has made salsa since he was in his late teens, and has continued to perfect his recipe.  It is now perfected.  This is hands down one of the most delicious blended salsa’s I’ve ever tasted. 

But beware, my family likes a hot salsa.  Honestly, it’s just too hot for me.  So I’ve omitted one of the two habanero peppers in the recipe.  If that’s too hot for your taster, feel free to heat up your blended salsa with a jalepeno or serrano pepper instead of habanero’s.  Enjoy this salsa with tortilla chips, over tacos, enchiladas, or in a mexican rice.  I especially like this salsa with my Mexican Pork Taco recipe which can be found in this blog.   Spice up your dinner tonight with Tio Cameron’s Salsa.  Enjoy!

    I never would of thought of putting bell peppers in salsa. Sounds great.

    I’ve been enjoying making salsa verde all summer long with fresh tomatillos and plenty of cilantro.
