Had the neighbors over for "happy hour" and I served this wonderful Salsa. Excellent flavor. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this, Rockin Robyn. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe to everyone.
Definitely delicious with a sneaky hidden "kick" in the after-bite. I just re-read the recipe, and COMPLETELY missed the part about draining the tomatoes, so mine was a bit watery, but we didn't care!!! I added about five garlic cloves (we love garlic), and it was really potent, but not so much that the other flavors don't shine, too. I ground up some coriander--in place of the cilantro. That gave a bit of a lemon bit, but not too much like you get with cilantro (which we are NOT very big on). I would like to suggest that you put the ingredients in the SAME order as they are called out in the step-by-step instructions. It just makes it easier to navigate (and I'm at the point where I kin youse awl the help navergatin' as I kin git!). We tried it "as is", but I was thinking to add a dash of lemon or lime juice to get that "tang" that's so good, too. Will let you know how that turns out. *Made for PAC Spring 2007*
best salsa ive had in quite awhile!!
Very good salsa! I love the fact that you use dried chili peppers, I have tons of these at home. Normally I reconstitute them in hot water when cooking, but grinding them to a powder works wonderfully here. The cumin adds a good bite as well. I did the whole thing in the food processor and just pulsed the tomatoes in there until I got a good, chunky texture. Thanks for a great salsa!
