Easy as 1-2-3!
Homemade salsa is easy as it gets! And it is VERY cheap to make when you have an abundance of tomatoes, jalapenos, bell peppers and cilantro in your garden :) (Lucky me, huh?) Start by boiling the tomatoes for 15 seconds, then put them in an ice bath to stop the cooking, the skin should slide right off. While this is going on I heat up some oil in a pot and suttee some onion, garlic, bell pepper (green, red, yellow... whatever color you have will work) Let them cook until the onions are golden (if you use yellow onions). I add in lots of spices (or they have pre-made spice packages that are very yummy) and my diced tomatoes and let that all simmer together for about 20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and let it rest before storing in the fridge. You can either leave it chunky or toss it and a blender if you like a thinner salsa. So good and sooo easy!
