NomNoms | John's Homemade Salsa
Finally, we have John's homemade salsa recipe! To say I have patiently been waiting for this post for over a year. Yes, a year! John was working on this recipe a couple of months before my move out to the East coast, and I know it is something he regularly makes because it is just that good!
Something I eventually want to incorporate into my life is making more homemade food items, especially staples like salsa, guac, and hummus. I am so glad I have a partner who loves to explore and create in the kitchen as well.
Anyways, John takes the rest of it from here.
+ 1 canned whole peeled tomatoes
I personally like the brand showed in the pictures; howevere, they are all good. Try to get canned tomato without seasoning. You should also season the tomatoes yourself.
+ 1 onion
Yellow, sweet, or Vidalia
+ Taste : Cilantro
The more the merrier. This ingredient cannot be missed in a good salsa.
+ Taste : Garlic
Depending on how much you want your breath to stink, add garlic to taste. I personally like adding a lot of garlic.
+ Taste : Hot peppers
I personally like to use jalapenos, serrano, and Fresno peppers. Each of these peppers add a unique kick and color to the salsa.
+ Taste : Salt
+ Taste : Lime
+ Drink : Wine
My go-to wine is 19 crimes. Although their labels are rugged; their red blend is surprisingly smooth and balanced. Definitely an undervalued wine.
+ Saute the peppers with a bit of olive oil.
This reduces the heat and brings out the flavors in the peppers.
+ Put all the ingredients in the food processor.
I like putting the canned tomato in last to prevent over blending.
+ Pulse chop the ingredients.
It is possible to over blend the salsa, which makes it a bit watery.
+ Keep adding salt and lime until the flavors balance.
