    RHOS's Note:

    I found this recipe browsing another recipe site, but don't remember which one. I grow A LOT of hot peppers in the summer, but don't eat them (my wife does). She wanted a homemade salsa, with heat but not overwhelmingly hot. I tweaked the site recipe here and there with this outcome. Wife and co-workers really seem to like it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 lb fresh tomato, diced
    • 1/4 lb fresh tomatillo, husked, rinsed, peeled, diced (can use canned, 13oz, rinsed, drained, finely chopped, but fresh is better)
    • 1 fresh red onion, diced (small)
    • 4 -5 fresh serrano peppers, diced (can use habanero, jalapeno or other hot pepper, but adjust amount used based on heat index)
    • 4 -5 garlic cloves (minced 2x)
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (finely chopped)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


    1. 1
      In a large bowl combine diced tomatoes, tomatillos, onion, and peppers. Using a garlic press, press the garlic cloves to minced, then press again. Add to the bowl.
    2. 2
      Add portions to a food chopper/processor to finely chop.
    3. 3
      Add lime juice, salt and cilantro, possibly add a little water depending on how much liquid is in the bowl naturally from the ingredients.
    4. 4
      Add it by the scoop to the food chopper/processor again to finely chop it a second time. Can leave it at once in the chopper if want larger chunks, or complete this step for smaller chunks.
    5. 5
      Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 2-3 hours before serving for better flavor blending. Keep refrigerated and covered when stored. Discard unsued salsa after approximately 1 week.
    6. 6
      *I usually add 5 Serranos and 1 Habanero.
    7. 7
      Yields: Approximately 2 1/2 cups.
