An Attempt at the Salsa Recipe

I was contacted in various formats about the recipe for the salsa I posted pictures of. However, there isn't one! Eek!! My variety of "cooking" usually involves a lot of throwing stuff in, tasting it and throwing more stuff in until it "isn't missing anything."

That being said, I hate to disappoint, so I pulled out my trusty blender again tonight and made an effort to measure everything I put in instead of just dumping and tasting.

Also, be warned. This made about 6 cups of salsa and filled my blender to capacity, so you may need to modify or cut it in half.

I used:
10 small to medium tomatoes, seeded and drained
1 yellow onion
2 jalapenos, seeds removed
1 bunch of cilantro
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 Tbsp Lime juice
2 tsp salt (start with 1 tsp & add as needed)
1 tsp cumin (optional, I love cumin)

Throw all of this in the blender and then use the Pulse feature on your blender and the Chop button.

From this point, taste (with a chip of course!) and if you're happy, stop. If not, just start dumping. Usually works for me!!

There's a good chance it will look pink for awhile. But that's normal and is caused by the air being pulled into the mixture while chopping.

To give the flavors a chance to blend properly and to allow your salsa to turn from pink to red and to deflate, I prefer to put it in the fridge over night in an air-tight container.

(and let me know how this works out for you!!)

  1. You are making me crave salsa!!! I love your style of cooking, I like to refer to it as "Rachel Raying" it! :) She will tell you measurements but then just dumps stuff me it is the best way to cook unless you are looking for consistency, but what is the fun in that! :)


I'm so glad that you've stopped by this blog & I LOVE hearing your feedback and questions — however, as this blog is no longer active I may not see it!! But no worries! I've moved all content from this blog to my new website and would appreciate it if you visited me over there: Lori
