My biggest splurge grocery shopping is chips and salsa. I'm working on getting to the point of being able to make my own tortilla chips, starting with corn seed, growing the plants, harvesting the corn, and making cornmeal, but I've come no where near being able to replicate my favorite salsa. My mom has been trying without success and I haven't even found anything in books or online that looks remotely similar.
The contest will run until October 3 (the average first frost date for my area, after which I'm sure it will be a lot harder to obtain fresh local peaches and tomatoes). The winner will be the person that comes up with a recipe (original OR found somewhere) that most closely resembles the flavor of the store-bought salsa. If none of the salsas entered taste like this product, the best tasting, as determined by me and my family, will be the winner. If more than one person submits the same fount recipe, the first one to enter it will be considered the winner. The prize is an assortment of seeds from the Trailer Park Homestead and a cookbook from my personal collection to be determined later (seeds can only be shipped within the US, the book prize is available internationally). Post your recipes in the comments so I can find them easily and have record in one place of when each recipe was entered.
