My good friend gave me this recipe for salsa years ago and we make it several times every summer with fresh, local ingredients. It makes a TON of salsa though, be warned, it might be best for a party or pig pickin. I personally like to eat on it all week, solo with chips, or in my fajitas, or on eggs if you are feeling a little sassy in the morning.
Recipe: Spicy Homemade Salsa
Summary: This deliciously fragrant homemade salsa is easy and quick to mix up for a party or just sitting poolside with tortilla chips.
- 1-2 large fresh tomatoes quartered, or 2 (14.5 oz) cans of plain diced tomatoes drained (no seasonings)
- 3 tomatillos – halved
- 1-2 jalapenos deveined and deseeded (depending on how spicy you like it)
- 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
- 1 white or red onion – quartered
- 2 cloves of garlic – halved
- 1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 can of corn drained (optional)
- Put all ingredients except tomatoes, black beans and corn in food processor and process until everything is about the same size. Salsa will have a VERY strong smell at this point.
- Add tomatoes to food processor and pulse a couple of times.
- Put in a pretty bowl, stir in black beans and corn and let it sit in refrigerator for a couple of hours, it gets better this way.
