HCG Diet Recipes for Salsa
I’m adding my own family salsa recipe. More than just a recipe, this is an expanded “how to” for making your own salsa blends. As my grandmother used to say- salsa is an art, not a science. Feel free to express yourself through your own salsa concoction!
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.
Salsa Recipe #2: HCG Diet Recipe for Phase 2 and Phase 3
- 2 plum tomatoes, diced
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
In sauce pan add lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook until the tomatoes soften.
Remove from heat, stir in cilantro. Allow to cool a little before serving.
Salsa Recipe #3: HCG Diet Recipe for Phase 2
- 1 Tomato, Chopped
- 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
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!
