My family loves the Hispanic Culture. From the people, to the feista’s to the food. My community has a large Hispanic Population, so with that comes several Mexican Restuarants in town. And we normally eat at our favorite mexican resturant or cook Mexican food at home twice a week.
First, I started with the salsa-I really love making this and it’s not a Mexican Dinner without salsa! A friend from years ago taught me and after tweaking for my family a little I finally found the perfect recipe!
My salsa recipe will make a quart size mason jar.
Here is what it consists of:
1 Lg can of crushed tomatoes
2-3 jalapeños (add an extra for more heat)
1 bunch of green onions
2 heaping tables of minced garlic
1- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
A few leafs of cilantro
In blender, mix jalapeño with a couple tablespoons of water and purée. Best if peppers are sliced down middle. I leave seeds for extra heat.
Next add tomatoes, minced garlic and salt and nd and a few leaves of cilanteo blend a couple of times.
Then take 3-4 green onions tops and dice them down to the white onion part. if you do not like chunks in salsa then blend them up with the rest of the mixture. If you do like chunks, don’t blend the onions but just stir them in salsa.
Pour in jar and leave overnight so the flavors will mix together yum!
