Does anyone have a good salsa recipe?


i need a recipe for salsa. it has to be something quick, simple, and have tomato and jalapeno in it. thanks.

WAY easy. And I live in New Mexico, so I know 😉

Rinse and core 2-3 medium/large tomatoes and add to food processor with 1-2 jalapenos (rinsed and chopped, remove the veins and seeds for less heat), 1/2 small onion (white, yellow or red, chopped), a handful of rinsed fresh cilantro leaves, and some sea salt. Whiz until pureed. Add juice of one lime. Voila! Some people don’t like the taste of cilantro, so you can omit that.

If you want a chunkier salsa or don’t have a food processor, you can chop everything by hand and mix in a bowl.

    salsa

    * 2 jalapeno chile peppers
    * 2-1/2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    * 1/2 onion, finely chopped
    * 1-1/2 teaspoons white sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
    * 1/2 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
    * 1/2 (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    2. Place jalapeno chile peppers on a medium baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 15 minutes, or until roasted. Remove from heat and chop off stems.
    3. Place jalapeno chile peppers, garlic, onion, white sugar, salt, ground cumin and diced tomatoes with green chile peppers in a blender or food processor. Chop using the pulse setting for a few seconds. Mix in whole peeled tomatoes. Chop using the pulse setting to attain desired consistency. Transfer to a medium bowl. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until serving.

    you can make a deliciousss salsa with just tomatoes, jalapenos and salt :]

    all you do is get a flat skillet and place a sheet of tin foil over it. allow the pan to get hot and keep the foil on it, place whole washed jalapenos (stemless) and whole tomatoes onto the foil. (the tomato:jalapeno ratio is basically up to you. i normally use either 2 tomatoes or 1 large and 1 smaller, with a decent amount of chiles)
    now, keep them on the pan and allow the chile and tomatoes to blacken (seriously!) just keep moving them around, turning them on different sides so that they get somewhat evenly cooked.
    then, take them off the foil and peel the burnt skin off, leaving a little if you want for some flavor.
    now, put the peeled veggies into the blender and add some water (i eyeball it but it’s normally about half a cup? maybe? you don’t want this kind of salsa too watery). blend it and add some salt.

    i swear, it’s good, easy quick salsa!

    if you want to add some more flavor, you can add a garlic clove to brown and add it, or some oregano. but it tastes good without anything else too :]
