this is my recipe for salsa. it is so good. if you make it and it is too hot just add more tomatoes until it is the mildness you like.

ingredients: peppers (i use jalapeno, Serrano, and yellow peppers), green onions, cilantro, garlic, whole peeled tomatoes, and salt.

this is so easy and you will never buy the jarred stuff again!

take your chili's and simmer them in a pot with water until tender. cut off the stems once cool and you can discard the seeds if you want (i don't)


put about 4 cloves of garlic in your food processor with all those chili's and pulse until some what smooth. put it in a big bowl


next add the canned whole peeled tomatoes to the food processor and pulse really quickly (maybe 3 seconds) then add them to the bowl


(see how you can still see some of the peppers?, those will all come out with the tomatoes)

next chop your cilantro and green onions and add to the bowl, then add a good dash of salt.


then mix and chill


this makes a lot of salsa! you can do 2 things

  • make half the recipe
  • or make it and freeze it before you add cilantro or green onion and just put it in before you use it.

so yummy! enjoy
