Leftover Salsa Makes Great Dishes
The tomatoes have been abundant and so have the peppers. I have made salsa several times this summer and always make a huge amount. I share with friends and family but there is always some left.
My salsa is full of ripe tomatoes, green, yellow and red peppers, a few jalapenos, chopped onions and fresh cilantro. I add salt and pepper and add lime juice and just a little Catalina French salad dressing for seasoning.
I learned there are some dishes I can make that will use up my leftover salsa. These flavors go so well with eggs. Here are some suggestions for you to use your extra salsa and make some dishes pop with flavor.
1) It's delicious when you use it to make an omelet. Use about a half cup of salsa (per omelet) in your omelet pan and cook to reduce the liquid down. Then add your eggs and make your omelet like you normally would.
2) It makes a flavorful quiche. Use 1-1 ½ cups of well drained salsa. Make your quiche meatless or add some cooked chicken. I also like to add cumin along with the cheese and eggs.
3) Spanish rice is a tasty dish and easy to make. You first brown a couple of tablespoons of chopped onions in a little oil then add your 1 cup rice and gently brown. Then I add chicken broth (about 2 cups) and a cup of salsa and cook for about 25 minutes. This is my new favorite dish.
This is an easy way to use up your extra salsa and have a meal with enhanced flavor.
