Born and raised in Texas, I am a snob when it comes to Mexican food. I have tried so many recipes for the perfect salsa and always come back to this one. It's absolutely delicious, fresh, amazingly healthy...AND ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS. Trust me, simple is the way to go with fresh salsa.


  1. Core the tomatoes.
  2. Dig the cloves from the head of garlic.
  3. Chop the stem off the jalapeños.
  4. Throw the cored tomatoes, the cloves of garlic, and the stemless jalapeños into a pot of water. Bring it to a boil, and turn down to medium/high heat.
  5. Turn burner off when tomatoes start to peel, usually in 30-40 minutes on the stove.
  6. Drain tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeño and let cool.
  7. Throw ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulsate until desired consistency.
  8. Add salt if desired.
