Hot Sauce

Hot Sauce, Lime, and Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes

We picked up the ingredients for this recipe at Trader Joe's in San Jose. I LOVE TRADER JOE'S! The closest one to us in Michigan is at least four hours away. The cherry tomatoes were beautiful, but it was hard to tell which ones were ripe because of all the strange colors. The only way to tell was to taste them, and then, of course, it was too late. The ones that were good were very good, and they were all beautiful.

The original recipe called for ground turkey, but I thought the guys would like the beef better. I am also wondering if it would be good with beans and rice instead of meat.

I am missing the California weather, and really missing our kids and grandkids. However I am busy here at home - lots of things to do before next week when I begin a series of classes and all-day workshops for nine days without a break. Without a break - who am I kidding - this is fun stuff! If you are local, check out my class link in the sidebar and see if something sounds good to you.

My mind is going a hundred miles an hour, so I am going to slow down and go to the green house to buy pansies. My favorite "slow down and take a big breath" thing to do this time of year.

Have a great day - I hope the sun is shining where ever you are.

Catherine, thanks for printing out that recipe. Just brought home a packet of "Old El Paso" Taco Seasoning mix (making tacos w/ground beef) and read the ingred. label--and was totally disappointed to see MSG listed. We try not to eat that stuff--so I thought "there's got to be a good Taco filling recipe somewhere....so thanks again. just what I needed!

The amounts are "to taste", but I think you get the idea. Somewhere I have a taco seasoning homemade mix recipe. I'll see if I can find it. I remember it had basil or oregano in it. I guess anything goes.
