fresh jalapeno peppers
onions, finely chopped
freshly ground black pepper
1 (7 ounce) can
diced green chile pepper
minced fresh cilantro
7 (15 ounce) cans
habanero pepper, seeded
Very nice. I drained the tomatoes and only used 5 cans instead of 7. It was still a bit runny, but I added some extra cilantro and onions to thicken it up a bit.
I also put 3 habernero peppers and 3 smoked jalepeno peppers into it. Seeds included. It had a nice slow burn, but wasn't over the edge.
I will definitely make it again, but will puree fewer of the tomatoes and drain off all the juice on every source.
I used only fresh ingredients. I used 2-3 big tomatoes, 4 thai or 5 serrano fresh peppers instead of the can of green peppers, and did not use sugar. If I need a sweet salsa I would substitute sugar for half a pureed mango.
Very great salsa--my favorite to make homemade. The first time I made this was for an open house party. I used chili peppers instead of jalapenos (on accident) and it was very good and about medium level spicy...no one believed habanero was in there (only slight slow burn)! Several people wanted the recipe. The second time I made this today, I cut the recipe in half and I used some of my grandpa's garden tomatoes (that had been peeled, diced and frozen) and used a kitchen scale to weigh the right amount. I still used a whole habanero, 1 jalapeno, and one small chili and it was hot! My husband loves it even more now, and I'm going to give a little to my grandpa for Christmas too (he likes spicy as well)! This recipe is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes hot or medium salsa, as it can be either depending on what peppers and how much habanero you use relative to the scale.
Very good salsa with a lot of flavor and some nice heat. Easy to make also. Thanks so much!
Very good salsa. Even better if made with roasted tomatillos.
Wear Gloves when handling the habaneros! They're fiery little devils and the burn on your skin is far worse than it is in your mouth if you're not careful!
I used ONE large can of tomatoes, 1 and a half limes, one onion, and two jalapenos, plus everything else. Like the punch. The acidity in the tomatoes mellows the peppers over a few days. Guests LOVED it. Makes a lot less, but a very strong salsa.
I've been making this for years. The only thing I do different is add a few pickled jalepenos to the mix and if I can't find whole stewed tomatoes in tomatoe sauce, I drain of the excess liquid in a collander before mixing the other ingredients with the tomatoes. try this, you can't go wrong. wonderful and fresh tasting!!
This is the first salsa recipe I tried to make myself. It was outstanding. One tip: Use SpoilerDave's suggestions. They are very helpful.
