I named the hot salsa: Piperz because my newest baby girl's name is Piper (she's a gem and 1.5 years old--so sweet). Here's my homemade salsa recipe. Warning this is very HOT. Cut back on the number of peppers for a milder salsa.
- 7 jalapeno peppers
- 3 yellow chili peppers
- 2 serrano peppers
- 2 (24 ounce) cans whole tomatoes
- fresh cilantro
- 1 lime
- garlic powder
- ground cumin
- Place all peppers in sauce pan. Bring to boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Remove stems. Place peppers in food processor & puree on high speed, seeds & all.
- Dump peppers in large bowl.
- Add salt to peppers.
- Place tomatoes in food processor. Depending on size of processor, you may need to do this a few times. Juice and all from the two 24 oz cans of tomatoes. High speed.
- * add a helping of cilantro in to each tomato blend. Only the top's (leaves) of the cilantro. Roughly 10 leaves per tomato blending. My processor is small so it takes about 3 batches to get all the tomatoes blended/processed.
- * Add salt, garlic powder, cumin & fresh squeezed lime to each batch of tomatoes you process.
- Dump tomatoes in with peppers in large bowl.
- Mix all ingredients with large spatula till well blended.
- Done! Serve & enjoy. with your favorite chips or on a warm tortilla rolled up. Also good to add salsa to small curd cottage cheese, add some chopped bell pepper to the cottage cheese. Yummy!
- This salsa taste just like something you'd get at a fine Mexican restaurant. It reminds me of the salsa served at On The Border restaurants. It's hot, but you can't stop eating it.
- If you make it. do let me know what you think of it.
- This recipe will make about 2 quarts.
