Would any one mind sharing a recipe for salsa?
Under the beef taco post, Annainpa shared this:
Red Salsa: Put into blender jar 1 lb. can of whole peeled tomatoes (or equivalent amount of chopped fresh tomatoes if in season); one small onion, finely chopped; 1 - 3 chopped Progresso Tuscan Peppers ( or substitute jalapeno peppers or dash of chile powder); salt to taste. Turn blender on for a very few seconds--salsa should be a little lumpy.
1 can dice muir glen organic tomatoes
1 stalk rough chopped green onion
1 tablespoon rough chopped fresh cilantro or more to taste
juice from one small lime
1 small onion rough chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
pulse in food processor about two quick pulses or it gets too mushy, pour in a bowl and let rest if you can for about an hour to allow flavor to meld. it gets spicier over night
SALSA (4 cups)
16 oz can stewed tomatoes
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
3 small jalapeno peppers, chopped & seeded (leave some seeds in if you want some more heat)
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
Combine tomatoes, peppers & onions in a processor & process until desired consistency. Add salt & cayenne pepper, process again to mix & store in refrigerator.~~
Note: Season to YOUR taste. I like to add some ground cumin.
I make fresh salsa by dicing plum tomatoes, about 4 or 5. Then I squeeze fresh lime juice over the tomatoes. Cut a jalapeno in half and remove seeds and ribs or whatever they're called (use gloves!) and finely dice the half jalapeno. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of finely minced fresh cilantro. Sprinkle a little kosher salt or fine sea salt (try a tiny amount and taste). Let sit on counter an hour and serve.
I make mine similiar to annova, but I also add finely chopped onion and garlic to my salsa.
