Stay at home and party with the neighborhood moms after work tonight. Margaritas, anyone?
4 large plum tomatoes (1 lb.), seeded and diced
1/3 cup finely diced Bermuda (white) onion
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
2 Serrano peppers, finely minced
2 large cloves garlic, finely minced
¼ cup fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. black pepper
Salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Add salt ½ tsp. at a time until you are satisfied with the flavor.
Serve with warm tortilla chips.
How to seed tomatoes: Cut in half and scrape out seeds with a knife or spoon.
For a nice touch, serve tortilla chips in a slow cooker set on LOW. Your guests will appreciate the warm chips and the aroma will be intoxicating.
Jalapeno peppers can be substituted for Serrano peppers.
"I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended," Rosen said in a statement. "Let's declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance."
