Some like it hot, Salsa that is!

What is a burrito without salsa? I’ll tell you, it’s a burrito that is missing something MAJOR! Well tonight I am giving into my cravings and making burritos for dinner, but I can’t find a low-Fodmap salsa to save my life. Onions and garlic are the main issues. But as I have also figured with Barbeque Sauce and Ketchup, I have to make my own. I have not been 100% successful on the previous ones, but I made a good Salsa so I’m going to write up that recipe.

Spicy Low-Fodmap Chipotle SalsaWP_20140717_005

  • 1 14.5 oz can of organic chopped tomatos (make sure it doesn’t have garlic or any non-fodmap friendly foods
  • 1  4 oz can of chopped chilis
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1  Chipotle Pepper from a can packed in Adobo (check ingredients)
  • 1 tsp of Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 dash of Asafoetia powder (the replacement for onion powder/flavor )
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp of chipotle pepper powder
  • t tsp of cumin

Add all ingredients, including juice from the tomatoes and chilies into blender and blend to your liking of chunkiness. Let it sit in the fridge for a few hours for flavors to settle.

I can’t wait, I think this is going to be a good burrito!

Not Shrimpy on Flavor

I adore my time with my girlfriends more than I can say. This weekend we had our bi-yearly get away but because we are in the NW we got snowed in, unable to make it over the penninsula. SO, we made the best of it and stayed at one of our lovely homes…on a houseboat! Every time we do one of these weekends, all 5 of us each make a different meal/course and we all share food, drink wine, play games, laugh, chatter, discuss and did I mention laugh?

Well lucky me, I have fantastic friends that also work with me on my dietary issues and always make things I can eat as well which is no easy feat. This weekend had three lovely treats involved, but I only have one recipe at this point. I’ll share the others because they were all fabu. We had Banana Bread, Mojito Sorbet and Shrimp Scampi! Yeah, seriously… my friends are AWESOME.

So, if you are up for cooking an incredible yet fairly easy dish, this shrimp is the bomb (and was gobbled up right away!)
