    Default My Fresh Salsa Recipe

    I make my own salsa-my family is spoiled and will not eat anything from a jar.
    Here is the recipe:

    Dump in a Blender:
    2 cans tomatoes
    1 can green chilies(or I like to roast 2-3 anaheim chiles and peel and seed them)
    1 small red onion
    4-6 cloves garlic
    Cilantro ( I have been known to use dried, although I prefer fresh)
    2 fresh jalapenos, seeded

    Whirl in blender until thoroughly chopped and blended. Taste and adjust for heat and salt. I do not use any salt, because canned tomatoes have a lot of sodium.
    Enjoy!!!

    This freezes very well, as it makes a large batch.

    You are so very welcome!!! I wanted to let you know that I put in a whole bunch of cilantro, but we LOVE it. You can also adjust it to your taste. Also, I found some sliced frozen poblano peppers at Walmart. They work great in place of the canned chilies and have no added sodium. They cost $1.50 and the bag has enough chilies to make a LOT of batches of salsa.
    Enjoy!

    Made the salsa this weekend. Big hit!!!! Froze Four containers of it and kept one out. I swear to you, tasted just like the fresh stuff we had at the Mex. Rest. last weekend when we took my Mom out for dinner. Thanks so much for a great recipe, never buying jarred again. Gonna try chopping up an avacodo(?) and throwin it in some when I defrost the next batch. Don't think that would freeze well though, so will just add after!

    I am so glad you liked it!! We don't use anything else, my family loves it.
    I love that it is so easy and makes a large batch.

    we make a lot of stuff with salsa, so I am sure this will save us lots of wasted money! Thanks for letting us borrow your recipe.
