I make more of a pico de gallo (sp?) salsa
Tomatoes
onion
jalapeno, habanero, aniheim, or whatever hot peppers you got
fresh cilantro
garlic
fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
I use the food processor for big batches, or just chop for a snack

Oh man...my Dad had THE best salsa recipe. It was better than that Fresh salsa that's in the produce dept @ grocery stories.
It was never a recipe that was written down and we didn't get him to write it down before he died. It was one of those recipes...a little of this and a dash of that. My mom tried to reproduce it...wasn't even close. :sonicjay:

My wife makes the salsa so you will have to ask her. she only adds 1-2 jalapenoes, but then pours half into her container and then I over load it with peppers. Stop over and ask here but some of the ones above sound a lot like what she makes. I have the Hot sauce recipes if you have any hot peppers.

Yikes!! Where to start?? Yes pico de gallo is the most basic -easy- one. Now if you want to give it a twist, add some small "cubes" of avocado... YUM!

For a fresh red salsa: Toss in a blender (food processor) 3 big tomatoes (cut in half) 2 jalapenos, 1 chopped clove, a few leaves of cilantro, 1/2 cup of water and salt to taste. Remember the more that you let it blend, the more "liquidy" is going to turn. It depends the consistency that you like.

And I will share my favorite salsa recipe for "verde" or green salsa: This is a little bit more elaborate but it is worth it! You may need to get some "Tomatillos" at the grocery stores. Put to boil 6 good size tomatillos, 3 jalapenos (no stem) and 1 large garlic clove. Once they turn dark green, transfer them to the blender. Add a few leaves of cilantro, a little bit of onion salt and approximately half cup of water (NOT the water from the boiling pot) Blend till the mix is smooth. Then put a little bit of vegetable oil in a pan. Once it's hot pour the salsa and let it boil for 5 minutes... You can use this salsa for ANYTHING. To snack, to season food or even add some beef, chicken or scrambled eggs. One of my favorites! :woot:

I could give you more but I just don't have written recipes. Just like my mom did: I cook with what I have handy :d:

thanks everyone! I needed some basis of how may tomatoes vs. peppers, etc. since I still am not getting the portions right. I'll have to walk that LONG 20 or so yards to Jeff and Julie's to get a recipe as well :tonka:

BTW, Jeff, help yourself to jalepenos if you want---we have three plants worth and even Chris can't eat that much hot stuff :d:

I think i'm pretty set with peppers I have 4 Jalepenos plants, 4 red chilie, 4 cheyanne, and 2 tai hot, so if you need some extra heat help yourself.
