I squeezed the juice and seeds out of and then cut two tomatoes into chunks and with the help of Pampered Chef, I made tiny pieces. It might have been a better idea to skin the tomatoes, but I wasn't really thinking about boiling water this afternoon.
I cut up a jalapeno pepper. You can't see it in the picture I chose, but I was wearing gloves on both hands. I once blew into an empty spice jar in order to get the tiny little remnants of leftover spice out of the bottom. Stupid DA, me. No, it wasn't black pepper. Worse than that, it was chile pepper. And I wore contact lenses. Anyway, I guess you could say I learned my lesson the hard way.
I chopped up a clove of garlic with the help of Pampered Chef.
Most of a white onion met up with the
CrazyPampered Chef as well. Chop, chop, chop, chop. Dice, mince, slice...
I put everything into the colander because onions have water in them as well.
Cilantro. Rip, tear, cut...
Delightfully tart limes keep things from spoiling and add lovely flavor. But this went into the storage bowl with some kosher salt. No reason to put that in the colander, right? The yummy goodness would drain away=bad.
