What is the best salsa recipe?


I am seriously craving salsa right now. Best recipe?

Authentic Mexican Basic Tomato Salsa Recipe

Fresh Tomato Salsa Recipe Ingredients

2 large, red ripe tomatoes, peeled and seeded

1 garlic clove peeled

1 Anaheim green chili, seeded and cut into thirds

3 green onions, cleaned and cut into 1 inch pieces

4 oz canned chopped green chilies

1 to 3 whole jalapeños, deveined and seeded (Optional to taste)

1/4 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 Tablespoon lime juice

salt and pepper to taste

¼ cup ice water

This authentic Mexican tomato salsa recipe is very easy to make. It sure is easier and a heck of a lot quicker to reach for a blender, but we love the chunky, rustic texture of salsas made in a molcajete, or traditional Mexican mortar. And spices ground against the rough black basalt give off truly potent aromas – which make our meals all the more flavorful

Char the tomatoes over a gas grill or under the flame of a hot broiler for a few seconds, turning them until the peel blisters. Slip off the peel, and the flesh will still be firm. Remove the green stem core and cut the tomatoes in half vertically. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the seeds.

In the food processor, turn the motor on chop first and drop in the garlic, cilantro, green onions and jalapeños into the bowl of the food processor to chop for just a few seconds.

Turn off the motor and scrap down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula.

Add all the remaining ingredients from the tomato salsa recipe, tomatoes, Anaheim chili, the chopped green chilies, olive oil and lime juice . Process with brief pulses to reach the desired texture, somewhere between a chow-chow relish and a textured puree.

You want to see bits of all the vegetables through out the salsa.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Pour into a serving bowl and allow to season for approximately one hour.

Just before serving mix in the 1/4 cup of ice water to cool the salsa.

Serve with tortilla chips, enhance your favorite chicken recipes, fish, barbecue beef, or with beans wrapped in a tortilla.

Make this great tomato salsa recipe then blend with mashed Avocado to make a fantastic guacamole.

This healthy homemade tomato salsa recipe is great with everything.

Since you will not have any left, storing is not a problem.

Makes about 2 cups.

    The problem this time of year is no "really" ripe tomatoes- only hot house, which don’t even compare to salsa made from red juicy ripe tomatoes from your garden or the local farmer’s market. However, you can make a decent one from canned:

    Mexican Salsa

    1 can (14.5 ounce) Diced Tomatoes
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    1 clove garlic, minced

    Combine all ingredients in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Let stand 2 hours to let flavors blend.
