I love Mexican food. I could eat it everyday and be happy. I often get a craving for it and I won’t stop. I love to go to restaurants and eat the chips and salsa. I can crush a cup of salsa and chips in record time. It is embarrassing.
Part of my 26 before 27 challenge (which I am super behind on! AH!) was to make fresh salsa. I decided this Cinco de Mayo I was making salsa!
I made it the night before, and thank goodness I did, the first batch was SO HOT ( my dad and brother called me a wimp!) I learned to take out ALL the seeds for round two (which I made the next day)
It was so easy!! Seriously – I won’t be buying from the jar anymore!! EVER.
I adapted this from Created by Diane
1 clove of garlic
4-5 roma tomatoes
1 small onion
1/2-1 jalapeño (depending on the amount of heat you want)
handful of cilantro
Deseed and devein the pepper.
Bust out our old 70’s food processor (or newer model if you are a lucky duck)
(Picture from another recipe)
Put tomatoes, garlic pepper and onion in the food processor and pulse.
Add salt to taste.
This isn’t perfect, and every time I make it I am going to tweak it until I get it like the restaurants. Suggestions?
My suggestion is you run out and buy the stuff and chow down NOW! (Wish I could right now! Darn it!)
