In a bid to get children to eat healthier, ‘The Cook At Home Dad’ shares tips and recipes he creates for and with his kids.
Salsa is a staple in my household that we eat not just for snacks, on Taco Tuesday, or when preparing enchiladas. We probably eat salsa five days a week, sometimes on omelettes, sometimes with tortilla chips, and sometimes while waiting for dinner to cook.
I broke the habit of jarred salsa several years ago, after tiring of the over-sweet, tomato paste-overpowering flavor, and started buying salsa from the produce section of my supermarket. I was eating chips and salsa while preparing dinner one night and I read the ingredients on the salsa container. I was horrified to learn I could not pronounce half of what was in what should be a simple several-ingredient healthy side/dish.
My girls and I created this recipe which is a weekly go-to in our home. I encourage you (even if you don’t like it pureed like my girls prefer) to try this recipe as an alternative to the over priced, over produced and chemical laden version you find in your grocery store (and trust me, it is as unhealthy jarred as it is in the produce section). Click on the Youtube link below for recipe, and share to keep the recipe for later reference. Enjoy!
***Please note: this vlog was filmed for Fodder 4 Fathers, where the page admin lovingly refers to his kids as “Lil’ F’ers” – thus the title. It is a term of endearment, not an insult.
