Post #17: Homemade easy, a caveman could do it!

Hello, hello! 

I have decided to rejoin the wonderful world of blogging after a (too) long hiatus - partially because of work, and partially because I got lazy.  But let's not dwell on the past.  I'm here now, and that's what matters.  (Also, I have a lot of time on my hands now that I am the trophy wife of the recently graduated Dr. Pirate!)

If you have never tried your hand at homemade salsa, I would definitely urge you to do so!  Yes, it's easy (and delicious!) to buy a jar of Pace, but where's the satisfaction in serving that to a guest?  Besides, it's so easy to make salsa that there's no excuse not to!  Plus, you have so many choices!  This is how I made mine:

Pirate Salsa

2 tomatoes (the softer the better...more juicy!)
1.5 jalapeno peppers (I seeded one, and kept the seeds from the half. If you want it hotter, add more seeds!)
approx. 1/2 cup roasted corn
1 poblano pepper, roasted
approx. 1/2 of a good sized purple onion
a generous handful of cilantro
salt, pepper, cumin, garlic to taste

1. Chop all ingredients to your desired size, I kept mine rather chunky
2. Bring to a boil on the stove
3. Let cool, add cilantro, and eat!

I boat motored mine ever so slightly, just to make it a little more juicy. 
Next time, I'm gonna add black beans! YUM!
