Quickly processing this information in my mind I asked her where she had gotten the salsa from as I didn't have any at home.
Pat came the reply, "Oh I made it myself!'
My eyes just popped out. I had forbidden her to use any knives. Reading the question in my eyes she added, "I was hungry you know and you were sleeping for so long". Well I could not say anything after that except, "I am hungry too, give me a bite".
She happily brought me one tiny little half a chip with the salsa loaded on it.
And it was the best bite I had had in a long time.
Ever since that day she has been declared the "official red salsa maker" in our household.
She has over the years, improved her version of salsa. She has now substituted tabasco sauce with red bird's eye chili.
I am sharing her recipe that she used for making salsa for our friends recently.
