A salsa recipe that tops chicken breasts or crackers with a unique Italian-twist.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: Serves 6
  • 2 14.5oz cans Hunt's diced tomatoes (I used the garlic, basil and oregano tomatoes. If you want more of a Mexican-flavor salsa, just use the regular diced tomatoes for more authentic flavor.)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ purple onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
  • 3-4 slices of bacon, crumbled or ¼ cup bacon bits
  • Hunts Fresh Twists Salsa Ingredients
  1. Saute the diced onion, minced garlic and diced jalapeño pepper on medium heat on the stove. I like to saute them in a little bacon grease for added flavor, but butter or oil will work too. This also helps tame the pepper. Saute until onions begin to caramelize and the peppers are soft. I like to caramelize the onions a bit, but you don't have to.
  2. Hunts Fresh Twists Salsa Saute Peppers, Onions and Garlic
  3. Add the lime juice and cumin. Simmer two minutes on low-medium heat.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. (I like to add a tablespoon of sugar now to tone down the acidity of the tomatoes.)
  5. Hunts Fresh Twists Salsa Simmer
  6. Pour the salsa into a heat-safe, freezer-safe container. Refrigerate 4-6 hours. (Or put it in the freezer for about 45 mins to an hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so and then transfer to the fridge).
  7. Garnish with bacon crumbles or bacon bits. Or mix it into the salsa for more of a uniform taste.
  8. Hunts Fresh Twists Oregano Jalapeño Bacon Salsa
  9. Serve with chips on over chicken breasts. The tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano are yummy with whole grain crackers and super delicious over chicken. The regular diced tomatoes are great with tortilla chips.
