Homemade Salsa Recipes

The directions for this recipe are for a smooth blender salsa, but if you prefer chunky then reserve some or all of the diced tomatoes, but use the juice when blending the other ingredients. Or perhaps you'll choose not to use a blender for any of the ingredients at all ;-)

To make this recipe even easier you can use canned diced jalapenos to taste. However freshly roasting them brings out a smoky, almost sweet flavor.

My family loves salsa, and homemade is so much better and cheaper than store bought. This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa. Serve with chips or with your favorite Mexican dish.

SalsaPut the stewed and whole tomatoes in the blender on liquefy, until you have the thickness that you want. Add all of the other ingredients and push chop on the blender 2-3 times, depending on how chunky you want your salsa.

This salsa has a very fresh flavor. You can use canned, from the store tomatoes or fresh, which in my opinion, is always best!

I like to eat it fresh, but it needs a day or two days for the flavors to blend. This can also be hot packed for canning.

Using a blender or food processor, put 1 each of all vegetables and pulse, until it is still chunky. Drain, reserving the liquid. Repeat until it is all done. Mix drained salsa, adding sugar and salt, and at this point, add some of the drained liquid to make it to suit your taste.

Combine all ingredients in blender. Let stand several hours to allow flavors to mingle. Keep refrigerated. Serve with Mexican food. Is especially good as an appetizer with cocktail size frozen beef tacos.

I just found this great and easy salsa recipe on the internet. I had tomatoes that had to be used up.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

1 medium tomato, chopped fine
1/4 red onion, chopped fine
1 small jalapeno pepper , chopped fine
2T. balsamic vinegar
8-10 fresh Basil leaves
1 T. olive oil

Combine ingredients and chill for at least an hour before serving. Instead of chopping all the ingredients, I place them in my food processor and pulse for only a few seconds. Careful not to overprocess. If you do not want it to be too spicy hot, remove part of the seeds from the jalapeno pepper.
