Tay’s Sweet N Spicy Salsa (Jalapeno!)

sweetnspicysalsa1
This Salsa is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! Tacos, Chips, Right Out of the Jar… Doesn’t matter. This is your PERFECT FIT for every Salsa need!

4c Tomatoes *See notes
3c Jalapeno, deseeded/gutted
1c Onions
1-1.5c Bell Pepper ( I use 1/2c Grn + 1c Sweet Mini Bells)
4 LARGE Garlic Cloves, minced
1c Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 of 6oz. can Tomato Paste
2tsp Pickling Salt
3-4T White Sugar (I used 3T!)
2tsp dried Oregano
2tsp dried Cilantro
1/2tsp Cumin
1.5T Paprika
1T Coriander

Optional: Per jar, 1/2 Cayenne (Deseeded) OR 1/4tsp Jalapeno Seeds

Makes 3 jars.
Either, Bring above ingredients to a boil. Then, simmer 30 minutes, covering first 5-10min. Then, uncovered rest of way. Serve for Parties… Or:
Tay’s prep:

Bring water to boil. Boil whole Tomatoes for about 30seconds. Remove and place, immediately, into COLD COLD water. Skin should just come right off.
Chop up tomatoes. I cut onto plate, lifted tomatoes with fingers, then place into salsa cooking pot… Ridding of excess tomato juices.
Bring above ingredients to a boil. Then, simmer 30 minutes, covering first 5 -10min. Then, uncovered rest of way.
In clean jars (Wash and boil jars/lids/seals, set on paper towel. DRY all completely), fill to about an inch below top of jars. Place on seal, then twist on rings. Not too, too tight. Just firm enough.
Bring water bath to boil. Boil in water bath for 12-14minutes. Shut off heat, and leave for about 5min. Place on paper towels for a minute or 2, checking they are twisted snug, not tight, but snug (Careful, it’s hot!). Then, turn upside down and keep them upside down til cool. (Upside down tip was given to me by a Farmer at Fleet Farm. Says it ensured his sealing, Update… Since this method, it’s been 100% sealing thus far!).

*Notes: I used a variety of types of tomatoes from the garden. Even a few
Yellow Tomatoes! You can lessen sweetness by lessening to 3T of Sugar. TO UP HEAT… Add a half of Cayenne Pepper,  halfed long way. OR, Jalapeno Seeds (I do 1/4tsp Seeds per jar). Just add either to jar prior to pouring cooked salsa in.

Chicken of the Sea Salad (Tuna Salad)

bbqlegstunasalad


Tuna Salad:
FOR SAUCE:
I used a lil more than 1/2 jar Miracle Whip
1tsp TO 1+1/4tsp Lawry’s Seasonal Salt
1/4-1/2tsp Paprika
1-1.5T Dill Pickle Juice from pickle jar. *SEE NOTES
1/8 tsp Onion Powder
MIX ABOVE INGREDIENTS Then set on top:
1.5c Shredd. Cheddar Cheese (Save some for topping presentation- 1/2c)
1c Frozen Peas
Add later:
About 2c uncooked Macaroni Noodles, cooked hour before eating
2 cans Tuna, drained (1 hr. prior to eating. KEEP IN CANS TIL THEN!)

I premade sauce morning of use. Keep in fridge. About 1.5 hour prior to eating, cook noodles. Rinse noodles in cold water, drain well. Mix together sauce with tuna (Drained). EYEBALL adding noodles into sauce, to consistency desired. Toss rest of noodles. I always have it a little saucy, as it’ll sit an hour and absorb some. Top with rest of cheese. Place into fridge.
*NOTES: I didn’t have pickle juice from the jar, what we usually use, so improvised with vinegar and dill. 1/2 tsp Dill Weed and 2 tsp White Vinegar. Works very well in a pinch. Just allow the sauce to sit and marinade at least a few hours, prior to adding it to noodles.

Recipe for Chicken Pictured Above:
Frozen Legs
Favorite BBQ Season Pkt. (Marinade- Grill Mates Texas BBQ kind!)
Favorite BBQ Sauce

Add legs to plastic bag, add in seasoning, allow to thaw- Mixing around. Grill legs. Close to being done, smoother with BBQ sauce, flip and repeat on other side. Allow each side to thicken. Serve.

Down wit da Rappers (Tay’s FAMOUS Taco Wraps)

tacorollsa

2 lb. Ground Beef (Season w/: Garlic Pwdr., Onion Pwdr., Pepper, Paprika, Cayenne)
2 Taco Season Pkt. + HALF the Water they call for
2 cans Basil/Oregano/Garlic Tomatoes (Drain, RESERVE JUICE!)
1/3-1/2 can Small Black Olives, drained, chopped
1/2c Mild Salsa

16 oz. Cream Cheese
1/4c Sour Cream
Small handful Chives or Green Onions (I used Green Onions)
Shredd. Chedd. Cheese
Soft Shells

First off, drain Tomatoes INTO a bowl (RESERVE DRAINED JUICE) and RESERVE 1/2tsp Taco Season Pkt.!!! Set both aside.
 –MEAT MIXTURE: Brown Meat. I season as I cook with a good dash or two of: Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Pepper, Paprika, and a dash of Cayenne Powder. Drain excess Grease. Then, add in: RESERVED TOMATO JUICE (NOT THE TOMATOES- Just drained juice), 1/2c Salsa, Taco Season Pkt. (MINUS the 1/2tsp), Half Water Taco Pkts call for. Simmer, til thick.
 –CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE: In bowl, SLIGHTLY SOFTEN (Not melt) Cream Cheese. Add in Sour Cream and reserved 1/2tsp Taco Season, mix. Add in Green Onions and Olives, mix well.
 –WRAPS: Spread a thin layer of Cream Cheese Mixture all over Soft Shell. Spoon on a line of Beef Mixture. Top the Beef with Tomatoes (I cut up small). Sprinkle a little Cheese down the line, then, a LITTLE more all around Shell. Roll snug. Wrap in Foil (I’ve used sandwich bags on each side in a pinch), give a slight squeeze.
Keep in fridge til serving time. I usually make them the night before events. Cream Cheese needs time to harden some in fridge. About a few hours, at least.
 –For Serving: Cut to few inches. Then, SLIGHTLY microwave til slightly warmed. NOT TOO MUCH, tho! Or it’ll be a big mess. Tasty cold, too.

Easily make these HEALTHIER using Turkey/Chicken meat, light or fat free Sour Cream and Cream Cheese.
