This was the first time I made salsa. I made some adjustments by adding red peppers and seasonings, and omitting the jalapeño peppers. I mixed it together in a food processor. Delicious!!
This is just the recipe I was looking for. I wanted all fresh ingredients and I wanted it to taste as closely as possible like the salsa from a Mexican restaurant I used to frequent many years ago. I think softening the onions is key in this recipe. I was a little concerned that it might be hot with that many jalapeños, so I used the smallest ones I could find. Not to worry! I ended up adding 3 more and the heat was perfect. I also doubled the salt. PERFECT!
this is a great salsa. you can adjust the heat by the peppers. stealing from another recipe I added 1.5 tbls brown sugar. I like a little sweet with my heat!
Salsa is always good, and this is no exception. I ran out of tomatoes so I use this in my grilled cheese sandwich instead. It makes a great addition to a grilled cheese sandwich too.
