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.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. Add tomatoes to food processor and pulse a couple of times.
  3. 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.
  4. ENJOY!
