Salsa -Taqueria Style Red-

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 10 mins

An authenic easy to make salsa based on a recipe from Taco Grande, a wonderful little restaurant in Katy, TX. You can control the heat by using more (or less) jalapenos.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the tomatoes, tomatillos, onions and jalapenos together over medium to low heat. Sparingly add a little water if you prefer a more liquid salsa, start with 3 or 4 tablespoons. It is easy to add more as it cooks.
  2. Simmer and stir for about 30 minutes. This isn't an exact science. I have cooked it as long as an hour or as short a time as 15 minutes.
  3. When finished cooking add a pinch of salt and black pepper, and the chicken bullion powder. Stir well.
  4. Mix in a blender, then add cilantro.
  5. Stir and serve with tortilla chips or texmex food!
