What's on the menu? – Cowboy Salsa

As you can probably tell by my previous posts, I’m all about easy when it comes to cooking.  I don’t mind cooking and I think I would even experiment a little more if I had a little more time.  However, with 5 kids, a husband, a dog, and all of my other responsibilities, there isn’t a lot of time left over for cooking. 🙂   I look for recipes that look easy, involve very little time, and hopefully ones that my kids will eat.  Recognizing all ingredients in the recipe is also a MUST!  This is a fabulous recipes for salsa.  The hardest part is chopping the cilantro and slicing the avacados which is actually not hard if you do it this way: 

1.  Cut the avacado in half

2.  Take the pit out of the center

3.  While the skin is still on slice the avacado lenthwise then widthwise (I hope that makes sense 🙂 )

4.  Take your knife and separate the skin from the avacado – the sliced pieces should fall right into your dish.

I tried all sorts of ways to peel and slice an avacado and for some reason they were all a disaster!  This is easy and fast.

Serve this dip with tortilla chips.  Our favorite chip with this is the lime flavored chips.  It’s delicious!  This is a great appetizer for parties or a great side dish for a summer barbecue.  This could also be made from your food storage.  You would have to do without the avacados and fresh cilantro but it would still be a delicious treat!  Enjoy!
