I love salsa, and lucky for me, Matt loves my salsa... so here it is, and it's Delummy (a mix between delicious and yummy)


10 Roma Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Onions
6 slices jalapeno peppers (jarred kind is a-okay)
1/4 Cup Cilantro paste
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
2 Tablespoons Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon (or more if you like) Garlic
Dash of Tabasco Sauce
Dash of Salt
Handful of chopped fresh Culantro*

*Culantro is a flat leaf cousin to cilantro. It's a little more potent, but can be used interchangeably with cilantro.

We stumbled upon it when I asked Matt to get some cilantro at the grocery... he came back with a pack of culantro--I did some research before I used it. Turns out, I like it more than cilantro!

Chunk the tomatoes, core them, and place them in the 2nd greatest kitchen appliance, the FOOD PROCESSOR (a Kitchen Aid stand mixer being #1)

Now dump (technical term) everything else in the food processor...

yes, this is cilantro paste, which you can find in the produce section next to the pre-cut onions (which I also use... who needs to cry over salsa--not me!) I'm sure my mom is cringing right now at the thought of cilantro paste, but it really is good... and I still used fresh culantro.

Viola! Delummy Salsa.... good luck with your own.


  1. First....love "delummy"! Next, love the salsa! I haven't thought about putting it in the processor. mmmm... And Culantro..learned something new! You're such a teacher. ;)

  2. I love the step by step with pictures. Definitely a good start to a great blog.
