After years of loving Mexican food, I devised my own recipe for fresh salsa since the jars are too sweet and not really a true mexican salsa. Fast, easy & Delicious!
- 3 -4 large ripe tomatoes, seeded (squeezed)
- 2 -3 cloves garlic (fresh, crushed)
- 1 medium sweet onion, to taste
- 1⁄2 cup cilantro, to taste
- 1 jalapeno, to taste
- 1 tomatillo (if available)
- 3 -5 dashes ground cumin
- 3 -5 dashes cajun seasoning
- 3 -5 dashes hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (a must!)
- Chop in processor on Pulse, slow.
- Chop onion first and tomatoes last.
- Add spices, juice.
- Be careful not to over-process.
- Drain to get excess water out.
- Serve alone with chips or as a condiment.
I needed picante salsa for use in another recipe and it came out top notch. Thank you!
WOW! This is an excellent salsa recipe. I had so many tomatoes from my garden to use up, so I made a big batch of this. So glad I did. The only suggestion I'd make is to refrigerate a couple of hours or so to let all the delicious flavors meld. Thank you Chef AnitaM for a wonderful recipe I'm sure to make over and over again.
An easy recipe to make. I made a few changes - left out the jalapeno - it has plenty of heat with the rest of the items (used a datil pepper based hot sauce), used bermuda onion and used 5 small tomatillo's I grew and had cooked for salsa verde - so it has a little more saucey consistency. Very fresh and well balanced flavors.
