My mother-in-law has past this on and I just thought I would share this with all of you. This is a staple in my house as I make it at least once a week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring large pot of salted water to rolling boil add tomatoes, jalapenos, onion ect. (you can add any kind of peppers you like).
  2. Boil until vegetables get soft and tomatoes start to peel.
  3. Then drain.
  4. In blender combine the handful of cilantro and dry ingredient (I usually just eye ball it), then add the vegetables.
  5. Bend to your liking. The longer you blend the thinner the salsa. And enjoy!
  6. NOTE: For milder salsa seed the jalapenos before boiling.

just made this salsa and really like the cooked flavor vs pica de gallo style. I used a blender but didn't realize that it really doesn't need much blending at all to get the texture I'd like-- I may try on pulse in the food processor next time. Do you ever use the simmering water as broth for different recipes?
