We are huge chips and salsa fans in this home and why buy salsa when it’s so simple to make! All the ingredients are less than $10, it’s especially fun in summer because we can get fresh veggies from the farmer’s market and make a new tasting salsa each week! But now that it’s getting chillier out we seem to enjoy it even more because it gives us a little taste of summer.
Fresh Garden Salsa
2 tomatoes, remove seeds from one, quartered
2 tomatillos, quartered
1 jalapeño (I use 1 1/2- 2 because we prefer it spicier)
4 garlic cloves
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1/2 lemon juice
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
Since we have a very tiny food processor I cut the pepper, jalapeño, garlic and onions quite small.
Add ingredients into the food processor, leaving one quarter of a tomato and some onions out. Once ingredients all blended together, add the rest of the tomato and onions in pulsing only a few times to give the salsa some chunky deliciousness.
Add more pepper, lemon juice and cilantro according to taste. I am a huge fan of spice so I usually leave a little leftover of the salsa and add more jalapeño’s to make a tinier jar of salsa.
Our salsa rarely lasts a week in this home (especially when we splurge and get the chips with hint of lime), but it should be good for at least two weeks in the fridge.
