Ya, that’s another one of my brother-in-law’s comments…We made salsa today and it’s sooo yummy and easy.
What Goes Into it?
- 1/2 bunch cilantro with stems
- 4-10 Jalapeños with only the stem cut off (depending on heat)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1-28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp White Vinegar
- Salt t (2 Teaspoons)
Clean cilantro and put into blender along with the jalapeños (sample several jalapeños for spiciness, adjust to taste), garlic, vinegar, and tomatoes and pulse until desired consistency. Add Salt and pulse again. Sample for heat and adjust as you go! Sometimes you’ll need to add more garlic or chilis. The ones we used to day were so mild that we needed to add some of little itty bitty red chili’s (we call them Lucas chilis because one day on a dare he ate an entire one and it nearly lit him on fire) that he grows in his garden. He thinks they may be Thai red chilis. That finally gave it enough heat.
One note (from the white girl) is that you need to let it sit and let the flavors meld a bit before you go messing with it. If it tastes too much like tomato sauce, it’s usually needing a bit more salt.
