Dill Dip (Salcido-style)

One of those family classic dips. Terrible for the waistline, terrific for the taste buds. I like mine with a little more sour cream than mayo.

1.5 C sour cream
1 C mayonnaise
2 t. dried dill
1 t. dried parsley
1 t. Lawry’s seasoned salt

Mix, refrigerate, try not to eat the whole thing.




Pantry Salsa

I love this salsa.  It uses canned tomatoes, so it’s not going to win any foodie awards, but it tastes better and fresher than most jarred versions.

Adapted from Pioneer Woman.

1  10oz can of Rotel (tomatoes w green chiles), mild, drained
1  14oz can of diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 C onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 fresh jalapeno, (seeds and membranes removed for mild)
1/2 C. fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. sugar
juice of 1 lime

Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until desired consistency.

Makes about 3 cups. Refrigerator for an hour before serving.
