Default Salsa

Good afternoon everyone! I'm hoping that you guys know some good salsa recipes. I've looked around and just can't seem to find a really, really good one. My wife and I love the salsa at the restaurant chain On the Border. I know this company sells salsa and chips at the grocery stores, but it's nothing compared to the homemade restaurant salsa with fresh ingredients. Do you know any good salsa recipes for us to try? Thanks a lot!

Austin

Thanks for posting, Kylie. I can't wait to try your recipe! It sounds very good. I've been disappointed with the other salsa recipes that I've tried in the past. I'll let you know how I like it when I make it. Thanks again!

Default Re: Salsa

My favorite salsa is what most places call pico de gallo. Ingredients are all fresh, of course.

The recipe is as follows:
2 parts 1/4 inch cubed tomatoes (Romas work the best and have a great flavor)
1 part 1/4 cubed white onion
1 part chopped cilantro
Lime juice to help in keeping it turning brown
Salt and pepper to taste.

That's it.

I add some minced jalapenos to give it some kick.....

This stuff is addictive. Chips are just a delivery mechanism.

Try it!

Default Re: Salsa

Here's my favorite salsa recipe (from our recipe link on our website, Northern Tropics) I originally got the recipe from a Mexican cookbook.

Our Favorite Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Heirloom tomatoes, chopped, 4 cups (approx 5 med-large)

1 large or 2 small green bell peppers

1 or 2 small hot chiles, to taste

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 teaspoon dried or 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro

1/8 teaspoon dried crushed oregano or 1/4 teaspoon fresh

1 teaspoon salt

Dice all ingredients into approx 1/2-1/4 inch pieces. Drain excess juice from tomatoes, then combine all ingredients. Refrigerate overnight to blend flavors, if you can wait that long!

This recipe can be made in quantity, brought to a boil, and pressure canned (pints) for 10 minutes at 10 lbs pressure. Also, try putting all the veggie ingredients on the grill and browning them and then making the salsa for a different wonderful grilled and smoky taste!

Default Re: Salsa

  • Sweet cherry tomatoes (Sun Gold are best), about a pint or two diced or chopped in food processor.
  • 2 or 3 diced scallions.
  • A quarter or less diced yellow onion.
  • 1/2 cup diced italian parsley or cilantro if you like it.
  • 1 diced green cayenne pepper (or a fruity Bulgarian Carrot chili pepper).
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika (paprika paste is better than powder).

Banana Salsa sounds VERY interesting... I will have to give this a go..
We eat Hot Sauce on everything... When the bag of chips is down to seeds and stems you just crunch them put them in a bowl pour on the Hot Sauce and get a spoon...LOL Cereal..


Mango Salas is awesome..
No exact recipe but
1 well ripened Mango chopped
red onion
garlic
tomato chopped
grated ginger
jalapenos~habenero's
salt pepper
lime juice

This is wonderful and very fresh on fish or with a spoon...LOL
