The Stuff From My Fridge Salsa!

I hate seeing any food go to waste.  In this family of 6 our food bill is probably the most expensive bill we have.  Especially when I try to cook so much stuff from scratch.

Yesterday I decided that for my recipe post for #foodpornthursdays  I was going to do Guacamole…I had purchased some very hard avocados at the grocery store a few days prior and to my surprise they were already past ripe and into rotten!  If you ever need to ripen avocados quickly put them in a glass clay bowl of fruit.  Needless to say mine had to be thrown away. **pouty unattractive face**

Well I wasn’t going to let the rest of the ingredients go bad so I chopped them all up…



Put them in my Ninja.  Oh how I love my Ninja.  That sucker will turn ice cubes into margaritas snow!


And the results look like this…



I enjoy this salsa with chips, on eggs, on burritos, and yes by the spoonful even.  Although I highly recommend that you don’t eat it if you plan to have a make-out session contact with anyone because it is POTENT and will probably ward off vampires or spouses any other type of monsters.  Except the children…..they seemed to be immune to it.


  • 1 Red Onion
  • 5 or 6 Roma Tomatoes
  • The juice of 2 or 3 limes (depending on how juicy they are)  A trick to getting them juiced up is to roll them between your palm and the counter before cutting them.
  • A good size bundle of Cilantro
  • 4 cloves of garlic (more or less depending on who or what you are trying to ward off)
  • 2 Jalapeños (I leave the seeds in cause I like it spicy…if you don’t like spicy then remove the seeds)
  • Salt to taste

  1. Mmm god, how I love fresh salsa. My friend’s recipe is pretty much the same and it is amazing. I love how the limes give it that little something extra!

  2. This looks so fresh and delicious, I’m definitely going to give it a try. When you get new avocados will you post the guacamole recipe? I’d love to try that too! Maybe next #foodpornthursdays 🙂


  3. This has my name all over it! i absolutely love anything fresh and if it has lime and cilantro/coriander in too then I AM IN!
