An Attempt at the Salsa Recipe August 26, 2009 23:40 1 Comment

I was contacted in various formats about the recipe for the salsa I posted pictures of. However, there isn't one! Eek!! My variety of "cooking" usually involves a lot of throwing stuff in, tasting it and throwing more stuff in until it "isn't missing anything."

That being said, I hate to disappoint, so I pulled out my trusty blender again tonight and made an effort to measure everything I put in instead of just dumping and tasting.

Also, be warned. This made about 6 cups of salsa and filled my blender to capacity, so you may need to modify or cut it in half.

I used:
10 small to medium tomatoes, seeded and drained
1 yellow onion
2 jalapenos, seeds removed
1 bunch of cilantro
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 Tbsp Lime juice
2 tsp salt (start with 1 tsp & add as needed)
1 tsp cumin (optional, I love cumin)

Throw all of this in the blender and then use the Pulse feature on your blender and the Chop button.

From this point, taste (with a chip of course!) and if you're happy, stop. If not, just start dumping. Usually works for me!!

There's a good chance it will look pink for awhile. But that's normal and is caused by the air being pulled into the mixture while chopping.

To give the flavors a chance to blend properly and to allow your salsa to turn from pink to red and to deflate, I prefer to put it in the fridge over night in an air-tight container.

Enjoy!
(and let me know how this works out for you!!)
