Welcome to my blog!

I am often asked for my favorite healthy recipes and have decided to share them here. All of the recipes use only whole grains and unrefined sweeteners. REAL FOODS! I love to eat healthy foods and I love to share my passion with others. I do not pretend to be an expert and I learn more every day.

Every Kiss Begins with Kaye's Salsa

Well, I'd sure kiss someone if he made this salsa for me.  A lot.  This salsa--from my sister's mother-in-law--is most delicious.  I may say that it's my favorite.  I wouldn't be lying.  Life is better with this salsa in it.  The recipe says to leave it in the fridge overnight to let the flavors develop, which is understandably necessary, but I just know that I can only do this if my salsa somehow lasts into the evening.  Good thing it's a large recipe (you may want to half it or can some).  Also, you can use fresh tomatoes.  Grab a spoon!  I mean, some chips...

4 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 bunch green onion with tops, chopped
1, 7 oz. can green chiles
2, 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 tsp. dried chiles*
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 bunch cilantro, chopped

Mix together and refrigerate overnight to let flavors blend. (I also use the immersion blender on it a little since I like a smoother salsa.)

*Kaye's note: The dried chiles are found in the Mexican food section.  They are generally labeled New Mexico or California chiles.  You can use regular chili powder, but I [Kaye] like the dried best.
