Good salsa recipes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have my garden started, just a few tomatoes and a batch of cilantro, and I'm very happy about it. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good tomato based salsa recipe. I have tried countless recipes that I found on the Internet, but none of them have turned out to be really excellent. (Maybe it's me, who knows .) If anyone makes salsa out there and don't mind sharing your recipe, I'd appreciate it. DH likes it fairly mild, but I don't mind some heat.

Here is a basic salsa recipe that is really simple to make and tastes fantastic.

1 red onion
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
4 tomato's
All coarsely chopped and added to a bowl.

Juice of one lemon
1 can tomato juice (48 fl oz)
1small can tomato paste
few jalapeno 's chopped(pickled from a jar is great)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon cumin.

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate for a couple hours. Best made the day before so the flavors can all mingle.

I've never actually written down my salsa recipe, so I'm doing this from memory. Quantities are entirely based on how much salsa you want to make at one time. This recipe is great because if you make a lot of it, you can put it in freezer containers and freeze it. Salsa normally doesn't freeze well unless you cook it for a short period of time.

Broil the tomatoes so that the skins crack open - turn frequently while under the broiler. Allow them to cool slightly, peel off the skins and chop coursely.

For seasonings, pick any or all of the following: garlic, onion, peppers (I use bell, jalepeno, chili, cayenne, habanero, poblano, tai, banana, or whatever is growing in the garden), salt and cilantro.

Chop the garlic, onions and pepper in a food processor. Don't liquify, but cut in very small pieces. Place the chopped tomatoes, pepper mix, salt and chopped cilantro in a pot and cook until it boils for about 5 minutes. Let it cool before you eat it. Freeze the excess.

I make a large pot of this each time a couple of times a year once our peppers start to come in from our garden.

Thanks so much for sharing your recipes! They sound delicious. I am going to try them as soon as my tomatoes start rolling in. I hope to save money by growing my own cilantro, so I plan to make lots of salsa this summer.
