Game Day Food: Homemade Salsa

I eat an absurd amount of salsa... really, it is kind of obnoxious.  I am not the kind of girl that politely dips her chip into the bowl either - I am a scooper (who leaves a trail of salsa behind on my shirt...).  Sometimes, I feel like John thinks I am too scoop-a-licious and that I am not leaving any salsa for him (I tell him to eat up too).  That is why this recipe is so great, because it makes a good amount - it's enough to share (or, Lisa size)... and, not to mention, it tastes much fresher than store bought jars.  

When I was in college I would beg my mom to buy me a Costco size tub (really, a tub) of Jack's salsa.  I am pretty sure I would go through the whole thing in a week (I told you, it is obnoxious).

Oh, and by the way, this recipe... it came from our good family friend, Marsha - and that's how you know it's good (I am obsessed with basically everything she makes).

So, make a batch (or really, just go ahead and double it) and enjoy for this weekend's football game! 

What you need:
- 1 can petite diced tomatoes
- Chopped green onions
- Diced Garlic
- Jalapeno pepper
- Chopped cilantro
- Fresh lime juice

How to:
- Mix together the tomatoes (do not include the juice), green onions, garlic, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, and juice from a lime.
- Add as much, or as little, of the ingredients as you want... make it fit your taste.  If you like your salsa with more juice, add in some of the tomato juice.

...For mine, I used 1 can of tomatoes (not the juice), about a 1/4 cup of green onions, 1/4 cup of cilantro, a tablespoon of garlic, 1/2 the jalapeno pepper (I did not use the seeds or membrane) and 2 small limes.
