A simple salsa recipe that I received from a friend. Great for parties and football games. Optional: cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow the flavors to mix.

  • Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Poke a few holes into the jalapeno and serrano peppers and drop into the boiling water. Reduce heat to medium and boil for 15 minutes. Drain.

  • Cut stems off peppers and place into a food processor with diced tomatoes and their juice, onion, and garlic. Pulse several times to your desired texture. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in salt. If desired, cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors.

Cook's Note:

Two jalapeno peppers make a pretty spicy salsa. I recommend starting with 1 and increasing as necessary. For a chunkier salsa, use diced tomatoes in water and drain them.

We loved this with tacos chips and spanish rice. You don't really need to cook the peppers although I do recommend seeding them - wear gloves. Thanks for a fun recipe to add to my faceless 4th of July menu. Read More
