An Attempt at the Salsa Recipe August 26, 2009 23:40 1 Comment
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.
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.
(and let me know how this works out for you!!)
