Jill's Salsa

Recipe by  

"This quick and easy salsa can be made in just a few minutes with a food processor. Green onions instead of white onions give it a nice, mellow flavor to balance the kick of the jalapenos. This recipe also works well with 2-3 habanero peppers instead of the jalapenos. But be sure to remove the seeds and membrane from the habaneros first! Grab a bag of tortilla chips, dip, eat, and enjoy!"

Delicious! This is some really good salsa! I cut the recipe in half and used a 14.5 oz. can of fire roasted tomatoes. I did cut back on the cilatro a bit and upped the amount of garlic to 2 tsp. of minced garlic from the jar. I added 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar, 1/4 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. of sugar. I put this into my mini food processor and let it go.... I put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavors blend. Perfect with warm tortilla chips!

This recipe was good but needed a little bit of help. I like my salsa very spicy. The recipe as written is a bit bland. For extra flavor I took 1/2 of an onion, 2 tomatillos and and a tomato and roasted them in the oven for about 15 minutes. I added this to the salsa recipe. I also doubled the garlic and jalapeño and added a bit of cayenne, some chili flakes and a dash of Mexican oregano. The end result was perfect!

This was an awesome recipe. I also added about 1/3 cup of chopped onion and a tsp of sugar. I used Rotel chopped tomatos & green chilis to make it a little easier on myself. My husband and I ate the whole thing in one sitting.

I love this recipe. I actually didn't use a food processor, but chopped everything really finely.It was delicious! The only other changes I made were I added two cloves of garlic, a med size vidalia onion instead of the green onion, and no olive oil. It was till awesome.

This was REALLY yummy. I halved this recipe, so in case we didn't like it we didn't have excess. I should have made the whole batch. I omitted the cilantro and used fresh parsley instead. (Noone in this house likes cilantro.) I used a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and added in a half can of chilies. I didn't have any peppers, so I used a couple generous shakes of Tabasco and I also added a shake of Worchestershire sauce. Very, very good. I'll for sure make this again.

Just bought my first food processor to help satisfy my salsa addiction. I also used rotel diced tomatos with chili's. This was delicious!!! My boyfriend only got a few bited before I hijacked it and finshed the bowl myself. Plan on keeping some made up in the fridge all the time!

Very good, but it wasn't spicy enough. I am going to leave the seeds in the jalapeno peppers and see what happens! I also used yellow onions instead of green. Very easy to make though!!!!

This is good but added chopped white onions, since we love them so much. Used petite diced tomatoes. Used garlic from the jar. Omitted the oil. Quick and easy. We are salsa addicts.
