Crunchy potatoes

Start out with 6-8 potatoes and slice them very thin ( I used a mandolin but PLEASE be careful I have cut myself so many times with those contraptions)

Soak the potatoes in water for about 10 minutes to over night

Drain out the water

Get a sheet pan cover with non-stick aluminum foil

Start layering your potatoes

keep going every couple of layers sprinkle with salt and pepper

Drizzle with olive oil about 1/4 of a cup and dot with butter 1/2 a stick or 1/4 cup

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour (they should be brown and crispy)

You could add onions or make individual packets (my dads favorite way) by layering potatoes on foil then sealing it up and placing in the oven or on the grill and cook for the same amount of time … they really are a delicious way to make potatoes ( I will post my daddy’s camping potatoes )

The best salsa ever

 

Since it is cinco de mayo I figured I would provide some yummy recipes .. this one is my favorite

 

Living in Arizona salsa is everywhere you can get any and every kind .. we grow up drinking the stuff it is on every menu it seems in some form …  I love my original salsa which takes a lot of time to make I learned it from a old co-worker from Mexico …  I made a salsa last night that taste like I put a lot of work into it and it only took 5 minutes … lets be honest sometimes a girl ( or boy) needs a break …. so here is what you do in a blender add half an onion (preferably a sweet onion) ,add one jalapeno (seeds removed), 1 large can of whole peeled tomatoes, one large bunch of cilantro, 2 garlic cloves peeled, 1 tablespoon of sugar, salt, pepper, and cumin.. Blend until all large chunks are gone.. add to a bowl then add another large can of peeled and chopped tomatoes … mix and you have your homemade salsa …

 

if you like it spicier I add another jalapeno

 

it taste so good ….
