Making Guatemalan Chimol! aka the best salsa EVER!

Temperatures warm enough for ya’ll?  I don’t know where you live but Texas is getting warmer and warmer! We have been a degree or two from reaching the 3 digit temps so you can bet we are enjoying the mornings out and evenings in! Which brings to the next best thing of summer, grilling! This is probably my favorite part of summer, with all the fresh fruits and veggies!

Thankfully, about a month ago we finished the construction of our backyard patio and, gosh, we have been out there so much! It keeps the heat away but unfortunately not the mosquitos. Insert worried face because Bella is made of sugar! Not even kidding. We go from the house to the car and she has 3 more bites! So this week, we moved the party inside and had a little picnic while daddy was at work!  It’s all in the little things right!


Bella loved it as usual and well the husband grew up eating it too. She loves meat and ketchup, she calls everything red, but this is no ketchup, this is your new favorite salsa, believe me! It’s so fresh and gives meat just the best kick.

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe, and it has been in their family for years! It’s a tradition for Guatemalans and my little Guatemalan girl loves it and always finds a way to get it all over her. This month I’m teaming up withKleenex® Wet Wipes Gentle Clean and VIVA® Paper Towels  to clean up the mess not only in the kitchen but off our faces too all found at your closest Kroger.  I love that it comes in a pack of 24 just perfect to clean up how messy we get eating this yummy salsa!  The are the perfect mix between  thick and soft and my favorite part chemical free! As far a VIVA  there is nothing much I can say about them that I haven’t said before! I love VIVA, one towel really does the work, making cleaning a breeze. I love an easy recipe that can be cleaned up fast with the right products!



But enough talk here is the recipe and hope you guys love this little piece of Guatemala as much as I do.

Chimol Recipe


1- Tomato

1- Bunch of Cilantro

1/2 an onion

1 lemon

*This serving is for about 3 people.

What makes this recipe different is that the tomatoes must be grilled. It gives is another flavor believe me!  After they are done, place them in the blender and blend! We tend to leave it chunky but you can blend it a bit more if that’s not your thing! We add the chopped cilantro and onions, salt and lemon to taste!

Place it in a cute bowl and it’s done!

Bella uses it as a dip, and double dips every chip and slice of meat, and we pour it on top of ours!

Try it and tell me how you like it and dont forget to pick up the new Kleenex® Wet Wipes Gentle Clean and to make your summer grilling and just life in general much easier pick up a pack of of VIVA® Paper Towels.
