Eddie's Work Potluck

Eddie's Work is having a potluck tomorrow to celebrate 4th of July and he has requested 2 special dishes Homemade Salsa and Avalanche Bars.

If you are looking for something easy to make and take with you to a BBQ tomorrow here are two recipes that will definitely please a crowd!

Copy Cat Chili's Salsa

Ingredients:
28oz can of tomatoes drained
4 whole jalapenos (canned)
1/4 of an onion
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons lime juice

Directions:
1) Drain the can of tomatoes
2) Cut the tops off of the jalapenos
3) Throw all the ingredients in the blender or food processor and blend

NOTES:
-For the jalapenos make sure that they are not pickled - you can find them in the Mexican section of the grocery store - I am sure fresh would work too but haven't tried them yet
-It doesn't matter what form you buy the tomatoes in (whole - diced -etc) just make sure they are plain (no flavoring/ seasoning added) and that you drain the juice - again I am sure you could use fresh tomatoes and adjust the seasoning based on how many you use
-For homemade chips: Pre heat oven to 350 degrees - Cut corn tortillas into 6 pieces each - place on cooking sheet and spray with cooking spray -sprinkle with salt and any other seasoning you like - place in oven checking every 5 minutes until done

Copy Cat Avalanche Bars

Ingredients:
1 bag of White Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Peanut Butter
3 Cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 Cups Mini Marshmallows

3) Stir in Rice Kripsies
4) Let sit for 5-10 minutes
5) Stir in Marshmallows and Chocolate Chips

7) Let cool in Fridge or Room Temperature before cutting to serve

NOTES:
-Need to let mixture cool at bit before adding the chocolate chips and marshmallows or else they will melt (you want it to be chunky)
-Don't press down mixture too much or the bars will get hard
-These are crumbly but sooooooo good every crumb will be eaten!!
