Mother In Law Salsa Recipe – Not my momma’s salsa

mother in law salsa recipe

Have you ever started searching for one thing on the internet and ended up in a totally different place?  That’s how I ended up making Mother In Law Salsa.

I started by looking for mother-in-law cake recipes.  I was being snarky about it because, at the time, my in-laws were due for a visit.

I Googled “mother in law recipes” and quickly stumbled onto a great recipe for Salsa De Suegra (mother in law salsa).  It’s so named because it is sharp on the tongue (sour) with a strong bite (hot).  (Draw your own conclusions.  My mother in law inspired the entire egg thing.)

Every version I read called for green tomatoes, tomatillos, cilantro, serrano chiles, green onions, salt, and water.  Well, my mother in law can’t eat green onions.  So, I reimagined the salsa based on ingredients she can eat.  I also left out the green tomato since I couldn’t find one.

Yes.  I made mother in law sauce for my mother in law.  She thought it was funny.

I made red salsa for her too.  It was onion free because of her allergies.  I work hard to cook food that she can eat when she visits us.

Creamy Curried Pumpkin Soup Recipe

I know, a curried pumpkin soup recipe wasn’t exactly part of my Grandmother’s holiday recipe collection either. But it should have been. Honest.

I’m hoping to make this a holiday family tradition for the next generation. After a huge holiday feast, I’m always in the mood for something light. For preference, something with lots of vegetable goodness. I also start craving spicy and exotic flavors.

In my mind, this curried pumpkin soup is just right as a post-Thanksgiving menu offering. It features peanut butter and coconut milk to round out the curry. Yummy. [Read more…]
