Mushroom, Jalapeño and Cilantro Salsa
I’m a salsa chica. Every meal, every plate you can count on there being salsa, it’s a part of my life.
BUT when I was invited to take part in the cookbook spotlight of the new Muy Bueno Cookbook and Mushroom salsa was the first recipe to feature – I did a little double take, mushrooms in salsa? Really?
Then I thought why not? Loaded with lovely red onions, swimming with jalapenos, a handful of cilantro and a splash of lime juice. I’ll give it a whirl~
And you know what? It was freaking amazing! I’m sure you caught this tid bit of super happiness if you follow me on facebook. You do right?
I am officially hooked on mushroom salsa. This salsa chica approves. Piled high on a crispy bollio slathered in beans dinner doesn’t get much tastier.
- 1 lb. mushrooms stemmed & finely chopped
- 1 small red onion finely chopped
- 2 jalapeños stemmed & finely chopped
- Handful cilantro chopped
- ¾ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- Black pepper
In a bowl combine the mushrooms, onions, jalapeño, and cilantro.
Add lime juice and olive oil and toss gently. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Let sit a couple of hours allowing the flavors to meld. This salsa is best served room temperature
Use this salsa as you would any salsa: scoop it up with tortilla chips or use it as a topping for fish, chicken, or steak.

Well, first of all, you get the award so far for fabulous photos of this salsa, they are so earthy, just like the salsa itself. I’m having trouble settling on what to make for next week, there are so many great choices!
