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

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

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

-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

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

1) In 30 Second Increments melt White Chocolate Chips in Microwave until smooth)
2) Add Peanut butter and microwave for 15 more seconds
3) Stir in Rice Kripsies
4) Let sit for 5-10 minutes
5) Stir in Marshmallows and Chocolate Chips
6) Place into a greased pan
7) Let cool in Fridge or Room Temperature before cutting to serve

-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!!
