I have never been a fan of store bought salsa or sauce and after years of searching for a great one I finally decided to try my hand at making my own.
Through trial and error, this is what I have landed on and consistently make this for my family.
It is truly quick and easy to make for something with such great flavor.
For this recipe there are no real measurements, but I will try my best to explain how much I use.
Of course there is a lot of personal preferences that go into this recipe so you can tweak it to your pallete.
You may like your salsa super hot or mild and can adjust the jalapenos according to that.
When I make this for get togethers I will make a batch for the kids without the peppers.
Quick and easy salsa
- 3 cans mexican stewed tomatoes
- 3 tablespoons of sliced jalapenos
- half of large white onion
- juice of one lime
- two tablespoons minced garlic
- dash of sea salt
- cilantro bunch or desired amount
- empty one can of mexican stewed tomatoes into food processor
- 1 tblsp jalapeno slices
- 1 tblsp minced garlic
- dash of sea salt
- squeeze lime jiuce from half lime
- cilantro to taste (i love it so I add quite a bit)
Repeat these steps three times, emptying out the contents into a large jar for storage. The last time you will not add any more garlic.
Pulse your food processor to your desired consistency. You can also add in fresh zucchini.
