I had always wanted to create my own salsa, and I think this is a winner. Hope everyone enjoys. Add or delete ingredients to your liking. Like it hot, add more jalapenos, or if you like it really hot try a hotter pepper. If you like it milder, use less jalapeno, and/or raise the amount of fresh chopped tomato. It is a versatile recipe. ***Note: "cook time" is chill time.
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can fire-roasted tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and quartered
- 3 scallions, trimmed and cut in fourths (use the green part as well as the white part)
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 cup white onion, diced
- 1 -2 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
- 1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh squeezed is best in this
- In a bowl combine the white onion, diced roma tomatoes, and lime juice. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a food processor, put in the garlic and pulse about 3 - 4 times.
- Add in jalapeno, scallions, dried parsley, corriander, cumin salt and pepper and process until finely chopped.
- Add in the can of tomatoes, and process until smooth.
- Pour this over the onion and tomato mixture; and stir.
- Refrigerate about 2 hours to allow flavors to meld.
- Have a nice cold cerveza or margarita in one hand, and a hint of lime tortilla chip with this salsa on it in the other, and you are in business.
- Eat and enjoy!
I love Salsa but I have never made it before. This was sooo good. I added some extra jalapeno because I like spicy food. Thanks for a great recipe.
This got rave reviews at our church pot luck! So simple to make! I did add a handful of chopped cilantro to it because I had some on hand. I'll will be making this often!
This was FABULOUS (and I'm not just saying that because you're my MIL! Ha,ha). I made this last night for tacos and took some to share with my coworkers - everyone asked repeatedly for the recipe. In terms of modifications, I only made a few - used homemade fire roasted tomatoes, 2 habanero peppers for extra heat (complimented the sweet of garden fresh tomatoes really well), and red onion instead of white. Loved it and this is now my official salsa recipe!
