  1. This recipe is pretty amazing! Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait for more to come! Also after your video on the refrigerator, I was inspired to do the same. I went to costco, bought some tupperware and only bought fruits and veggies. Then once I got home, I cut & prepared them for easy eating. I have at least 80 lbs to go and I am going to stick this time. Thank you for all that you and Chris do to educate people to change their lives.

    1. Kathy, keep losing. 80 pounds sounds like so much, doesn’t it? but before you know it, you’ll be posting I have 40 pounds to lose. You CAN do this!!!! Been on a “diet all of my life it seems, but just darn good healthy eating is the trick, we all know that. Here’s to you doing it, and please keep up posted!

  2. Thank you for posting this again, Heidi! I’d forgotten about it, and this year I have a BUMPER crop of yummy tomatoes in our organic garden. My 4 kids are so proud that their urban garden is thriving, but they are getting tired of “plain” tomatoes! I will try this recipe with the tomatoes doubled, and I’ll bet it will still be delicious, and a nice way to keep using the fruits of our labors!

  3. Thank you for posting the recipes. The salsa is awesome! I have gotten stuck in a rut of what to eat.

  4. So Yummy! I’m loving this salsa! Thank You for posting it! It is now officially my favorite salsa recipe!

  5. Look yummy…except one thing…sooo many of the “healthy” recipes I find include Avocados…which I am allergic to! What can I do when they are used so often?

    1. Lightly saut? or better yet grill some diced bell pepper, cool and add in place of the avocado. It will add some more/different flavor. The grilled version will add some smokey deliciousness to the salsa!

  6. Hi Heidi – this looks delish! I saw the reply that said that this would be a reward meal. I was planning on eating this over salad or as a side dish on a high carb day. Without the tortillas. Is that doable or no? I’m new to carb cycling, so I’m trying to navigate it all. You guys are awesome and I’m excited for my journey!


    1. Because of the avocado, which is a healthy fat (part of a low carb meal), this would be a great reward day meal. Happy carb cycling!

  7. Great snack dor Body by Vi. You don’t have to worry about fats and carbs on the same day. It’s called Balance!! Just saying

  8. I like to roast the corn first, either on the grill or in the oven. Let it cool then add to the remaining ingredients. Chop up a little cilantro as well and toss it in! For a little zip, add a little chopped jalepeno!

  9. My son (who is almost 3) and I made this tonight. Family came over and looked at it apprehensively because it looked “too healthy”. I told them to try it (with the recommended multigrain chips too) and they all loved it. It’s almost gone! Thanks for another delicious recipe. Heidi, you’re the best! 🙂

  10. How many grams of fiber so we can count the weight watchers points? THANKS for sharing!!! We are PHX natives…so yay for PHX!!!

  11. Bonjour.
    Je vous ?cris de france.
    Qu’est ce que c’est “garni powder”?
    J’adore l’?mission tv.
    Avez vous des livres traduits en fran?ais?
    Bonne journ

    1. Tu dois surement vouloir dire “garlic powder” et dans ce cas la c’est de l’ail en poudre, donc ici en france ce sera de l’ail d?shydrat?.

      Bon app?tit

  12. It looks very good but I dont believe I could eat this for a low or high carb day?? It has fat and it has carbs which are opposite days?? Guess it’s cheat day food…..

  13. I’ve been on such a salsa kick too! I’ll make anything from your blog after that sweet potato, apple, chicken (I use lean turkey sausage) hash! Heidi Powell Day in my Kitchen!

  14. Just made this and was the perfect topping to my fish tacos…will definitely make it again! Oh and I added a little cilantro too!
