Simple Green Chili Salsa

Have you ever had a week when things just didn’t go as planned??  Yeah, well welcome to my last week!

My family was in town… the whole gang; my Mom, Dad, Sis, and bro-in-law.  It was great to have them all here together and we had lots of fun, but I guess you could say I sorta got “distracted”.

My plan was to take pictures and post the recipes I made while they were here. I was even planning on shooting a video with my Dad (I thought that was a fun idea), but some how it just never happened. Sure we cooked, but I never got around to the “taking the picture and posting the recipe” part.

Oh well, what can I say, life just doesn’t always go as planned… it was good fun and that’s what counts, right?!

But here’s to a new week and new recipes!!!

This is really quick and easy recipe for Green Chili Salsa. I served it with Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchilada’s, both of which are from a gluten free blog called, Karina’s Kitchen.

I made a few minor changes in the recipe to adjust it to my personal prefrences, but overall all of the delicious credit goes to Karina.

So whether you are Gluten-Free or not, you have got to be sure to get over there and check out some of Karina’s jaw dropping recipes, they are to die for!

Simple Green Chili Salsa

Yield: 2 1/2 cups of salsa (10-1/4 cup servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of canned green chili’s (I like spicy)
  • 4 oz can of diced jalapeno peppers
  • ½ of a white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp of arrowroot powder (or corn starch) dissolved in a little bit of water
  • 2 cups of veggie broth

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and allow for about 20-30 minutes.

You just want to allow the onion and garlic to cook while all of the flavors come together…yum!
