This is my mom's very own delicious salsa recipe... over the years she's gotten hundreds of compliments, and won a few awards for it as well. It's chunky, a little sweet, has just the right amount of heat, and is just soooooooooooo good. Grab some tortilla chips (and a margarita!) and dig in. :)
Fresh Garden Tomato Salsa
2-3 lbs. ripe Roma tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup sliced jalapenos
2 tbsp. jalapeno juice
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 cup cilantro
3 cloves garlic
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
Place jalapenos, jalapeno juice, onion, cilantro, and garlic into a food processor or small chopper. Chop/puree until ingredients are well combined.
In a large bowl, place chopped tomatoes. Add mixture from food processor, pepper, and salt to the large bowl; stir gently until all ingredients are well combined.
For best results, chill salsa overnight before serving.
Note: If a hotter salsa is desired, add more chopped jalapenos!!!
Serve with tortilla chips! Or on a taco, or with eggs, or on a burger, or use as a side with your favorite Mexican dish. Salsa is great to have around because it is so versatile .
Yum.... this stuff is addicting. Enjoy!
