Man.. I love that thing! Just made some salsa from this recipe a recipe I found on Pinterest..can’t find the link here is the recipe:
- Homemade Salsa
2 16oz. Cans Stewed Tomatoes (you can substitute 1/2 fresh if available)
1 4oz. Can Chopped Green Chiles
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 Jalapeño Pepper – chopped & seeded
1 Bunch Cilantro – chopped (add as much as you’d like)
4 Green Onions – chopped
1 tsp. Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Salt
Pinch of Pepper
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend to your preference.
This salsa is a trifle sweet, due to the added sugar (which I probably doubled I just tossed some in there), and the canned tomatoes, but it’s a winner. It’s better than the ‘El Pollo Loco’ recipe I tried, but I cheated on that and used a lot of cilantro, and also lime. I don’t recommend the lime. It seemed to give it kind of a “fishy” taste. It was horrible on my chicken actually. I really like this one though, am eating it now along with some tortilla chips YUMMY!
Next batch I will put in one can stewed tomatoes, and some fresh roma tomatoes. The fresh tomatoes give salsa a unmistakable different flavor. For years I never knew what it was. I had thought it was avocado!
