Tara’s Homemade Salsa
This makes for a very colorful, and tasty salsa.
Notice, nothing is cooked.
3# FRESH Ripe Red Tomatoes (I normally use Roma's)
2 clove garlic (smashed)-personal taste here, use what you like
2 jalapeno peppers-seeded and finely minced-personal choice here-use what you like
Half red onion -finely chopped
Half white onion-finely chopped
1 whole bunch cilantro –finely chopped (stems removed)
Half red bell pepper-finely chopped
Half yellow bell pepper-finely chopped
Half green bell pepper-finely chopped
Juice of 2 limes—taste preference can be applied here also
I also use (to taste) McCormicks hot salt-I start out with ½ TBLSP
Dash of cayenne pepper
Put tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice and spices into food processor.
Process until a consistency your prefer.
Just remember if you cut back on the processing time, depending on the size of your jalapenos, you may be taking a zesty bite of the pepper, unless it is finely minced.
(I like chunky salsa)
You can add onions and pepper’s to the processor at the end to blend better.
(Take out and add remaining ingredients.-If not added during blending)
Taste for salt content, and add more if needed.
Chill to let flavors blend. (preferably overnight)..
Just remember, all ingredients can be altered for taste preferences.
You also may want to add a touch of sugar to modify acid content from tomatoe's.
