CopyCat Old-School Iguana Lounge Salsa

In the year BB ((before babies)), I worked for an engi­neer­ing firm in OKC, on the edge of Nichols Hills and had mon­ey to burn. Well, I NEVER had mon­ey to burn — but I could afford the occa­sion­al $4.99 lunch spe­cial at a string of near­by restau­rants. Brown Bag’s Chick­en Sal­ad Sand­wich & Pearl’s, Red Beans & Rice were among my most favorite lunch­es. I have shared my “copy­cat” ver­sion of those recipes HERE & HERE. But the one restau­rant I have yet to dis­cuss is Igua­na Lounge. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Huevos Rancheros Verdes Breakfast Cups ((Breakfast will never be the same!!))

I have a bun­dle of recipes just float­ing around in the spaces between my to do lists, day­dreams and what­ev­er decides to bounce around in my brain through­out my days. And this recipe is one that has been beg­ging to come to be for months. Please tell me I am not the only one this hap­pens to! Con­tin­ue read­ing

Heirloom Tomato Salsa ((straight from the garden!!))

You guys may have learned this by now, but let me just say it again for the record! Chips & sal­sa are my love lan­guage. It used to be Chips & sal­sa AND Diet Dr. Pep­pers from Son­ic, but I gave up the DDP addic­tion 10 months ago ((and it was SO hard to do — I am NEVER going back!!)). Any­way, about the chips and sal­sa… Con­tin­ue read­ing

Spicy Salsa ((really spicy))

I LOVE chips and sal­sa! It is one of my top 3 favorite foods ((next to almond cake with warm but­ter­cream icing and fried chick­en with home­made ranch))! I also love mak­ing my own sal­sa. It is so easy and so obvi­ous­ly supe­ri­or to store bought. If you haven’t already seen them, you should take a sec­ond and check out my 2 sal­sa recipes already shared on Food for a Year.

Homemade Oven-Roasted Restaurant Style Salsa ((This is as GOOD as it gets!))

This could total­ly be one of “those” recipes. You know, one of the recipes that is kept secret — locked up and nev­er shared in it’s entire­ty?? Good for you — I am bad at keep­ing a good thing secret! In addi­tion to being the most per­fect sal­sa tast­ing sal­sa, it is just so very easy to make. You must try this at home!

7-Minute DIY Salsa

One of my favorite things to make in the kitchen is home­made restau­rant style sal­sa. It is so quick, ultra sim­ple and crazy good. Just a few ingre­di­ents & a whirl in the blender stand between you and one of the best things about Mex­i­can food! No more under sea­soned, over­ly spicy, too chunky, salt over­loaded, gag­gy gar­lic or onion extreme. When you DIY it, you make it just the way YOU like it. Con­tin­ue read­ing
