Salsa should taste the way you want it to taste, so this set of ingredient guidelines is intended to be tweaked, retweaked, tasted & adjusted. Some people like to use fresh tomatoes (de-seeded), but for me using canned is easier.
- 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1/3 to 1/2 onion (1/2 if you like the onion-y flavor of Carlos O'Kelly's salsa)
- 1/4 to 1 jalapeno, de-seeded unless you want a huge kick
- 1-2 gloves garlic
- cilantro to taste (I use about 1/2 a bunch)
- lime juice to taste
- salt to taste
Hard way or if you want chunky salsa: Chop everything up yourself.
Taste, adjust flavors & enjoy!
Here's my work in progress. Ok, I actually just wanted to show off my red food processor.
And the final product. It's really tasty!
