Simple and Easy Salsa

Simple and Easy Salsa!

A Salsa recipe that can’t get any easier than this.

Tips:

  1. Using one Jalapeño gives a mild heat.  For more heat, add more Jalapeños with seeds or use a hotter pepper like Serrano.
  2. Use the white portion of the scallions (green onions) only.  Using the green tips can create some bitterness in the Salsa.
  3. If you don’t want the Salsa watery, pour the Salsa in a strainer to drain all the liquid.
  4. For a more flavorful Salsa, let it sit overnight in the refrigerated in a tightly closed container.
  5. If serving with chips, don’t over season with salt since most chips are already salted.

*Makes approximately 3 cups of Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 3 plum tomatoes, seeds removed
  • 1 bunch cut scallions, white part only
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves only
  • 1 Jalapeño, seeds removed
  • 1 28-oz can whole tomatoes, drained
  • 1 large onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor.  Pulse until desired consistency is obtained, 10-15 seconds.  Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with tortilla chips or as a condiment.
