Blender Salsa

Do you make your own fresh salsa?  It is very easy, especially if you use a blender to chop your veggies.


A Blender Full of Tomatoes, quartered
     Romas are a good choice
1-3 Jalapenos, seeded and quartered
1 Clove Garlic
1/3 Small Onion
1/2 Cup Cilantro Leaves
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 1/4 - 1 1/2 tsp. Salt

Pulse the tomatoes in the blender until chopped.  Depending on the efficiency of your blender, you may be able to do them all at once or in smaller batches.  Pour into your serving bowl and set aside.

Next, add the onion, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and about 5 Tbs. of juice from the tomatoes to the blender. Blend on a medium to high speed until the garlic, cilantro, and jalapenos appear to be finely chopped.  Taste a small amount of this blend to check if the jalapenos are hot enough.  Add more if necessary.  (The heat of the jalapeno is in the seeds; you might just add some seeds back to this blend.) 

Scrape this blend into the bowl of chopped tomatoes and stir. Shortly before serving, add salt to taste.  If you feel the salsa is too juicy, you can drain it, or you may wish to chop your tomatoes by hand.  We usually eat it as is.

I took these pictures the other day, but typing this recipe has made me crave this salsa, so.......I think I'll see ya later.   A hot salsa date is calling my name; I'm heading to the kitchen to make some more.

Thanks for stopping by,
