Tucson Guacamole

This old family guacamole recipe is perfect with corn chips. For family holidays, parties, barbecues and get togethers, we always have this made. It's great this way - but you can also add onions or tomatoes or whatever you like.

Spicy Fresh Tomato Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 287
Fresh tomatoes are peeled, crushed, and then boiled with chopped tomatoes, onion, spices, jalapeños, and cilantro for a great-tasting salsa. Adjust the number of jalapeños depending on how spicy you like your salsa. The amount and types of onion can be varied, too.

Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 149
Tomatillos, lots of garlic and spicy jalapenos charred under the broiler give this salsa a rich, earthy flavor. If you like your salsa very hot, added roasted Jamaican scotch bonnets instead of the jalapeno.
