Hcg Diet Salsa Recipe #1:  HCG Diet Recipe for Salsa with Mexican Flare!

This recipe can be modified to taste and is acceptable on most protocols for phases 2 and 3 of the HCG diet.

Boil red tomatoes and one chili pepper.  When tomatoes are soft, pull the skin off.  Put the tomatoes and chili pepper in a blender with plenty of water and lots of salt.  Vary the flavor using any of the following- garlic, stevia, cilantro, onion, thyme, oregano.
There are literally hundreds of variations for this and every Mexican Salsa starts here!

Can also add hamburger/sausage, Parmesan, mushrooms, etc to make an Italian sauce.

  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Remove from heat, stir in cilantro.  Allow to cool a little before serving.

  • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Oregano
  • 2 Fresh Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • Fresh Chopped Cilantro, amount as desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper

Chop all ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Add the lime juice, oregano, onion powder, salt and pepper.  Mix well.  Add desired amount of cilantro to taste and chill in the refrigerator.

Salsa Recipe #4:   HCG Diet Recipe for Phase 2

  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped well
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste)
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained well
  • 1-2 Jalapeno chopped well (more or less to desired preference)

In a blender, pulse the onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, garlic and salt.  Once desired texture is reached, add the drained tomatoes and pulse until combined.

Tip:  If you prefer thicker or chunky salsa, take care not to over process. – a very few pulses should do the trick. Transfer to a bowl and serve. Feel free to make extra and keep in the refrigerator for next time!
