Easy Homemade Fresh Salsa Recipe

Laura Peterson

I’m going to a party tonight that doesn’t involve kiddie treat bags full of annoying noisemakers, toys that send you to the E.R. when you step on them barefoot, and sticky candy.  Yay for grown up time!  To celebrate this outing, I made some FRESH and EASY salsa.  By hand.  And it’s awesome.  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium tomatoes (about 2 cups)
  • 1/3 c. green onions (both white and green parts)
  • 3 Tbsp. FRESH cilantro
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded to your heat preference
  • 2 serrano peppers, seeded to your heat preference
  • 1 Tbsp. FRESH lime juice (about a 1/2 of a lime squeezed)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. of some type of Southwest seasoning*

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 450 and place jalapenos and serrano peppers on cookie sheet covered in foil. Roast on top rack 5-7 minutes

Placed diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, roasted jalapenos and peppers, lime juice, salt, and southwest seasonings in a food processor, and blend until desired consistency!

Serve with tortilla chips, on tacos or enchiladas, and with many margaritas.

Easy, right?

*If you don’t have any Southwest seasoning on hand, whip up a batch with these ingredients and save in your spice rack in an empty bottle:

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
