Garden Fresh Salsa

This is a recipe request from my sister-in-law Ana. Tony and I usually just add whatever we want and taste it throughout to see what it needs, but today we measured and made sure of what we put into it so others who like to have exact measurements will be able to have some fresh salsa too!:)

Garden Fresh Salsa

5-6 medium tomatoes, diced (I like mine chunky, but just cut them whatever size you like.)
1 anaheim pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1/2 to 3/4 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/4 to 1/3 cup yellow onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Dice tomatoes and put in a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and stir until all mixed up. I just put in 1 jalapeno and I scraped out the seeds and ribbing so as not to get too much heat. If you like the heat leave the seeds and ribbing and just chop up the whole jalapeno. Salsa is always better if you can leave it alone and sit it in the frige for a few hours to let all the flavors mix-in, but I have a hard time doing that!:)

We also made some Queso that was really good too. We just heated up some Cheez Whiz according to the instructions on the jar and then added some Garden Fresh Salsa in with it and it was superb!

I LOVE this time of year. I just wish my tomatoes would all turn red already!!
