  • heres the recipe: Tomatoes, green onion, Jalepeno chilie or Serano chilie, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper. Depending on the hotness you want depends on how many chilies you will use. Haven't had a person come to eat at my house that doesn't like. it. I use about 4 chilies, 5 medium tomatoes, 4 green onions, half a bunch of cilantro. Iike to use fresh garlic chopped super fine but if you dont have use powder garlic. A DIFFERENT KIND OF SALSA, Chilie about 4-6 , 5-6 tomatoes, 3 cloves garlic, salt and pepper. Im going to tell you an easy way. boil chilies and tomatoes together. tomatoes are done when you see the skin comes off & tender chilies are done when soft. If you have a blender start with garlic salt and peppe, blend. then add your chilies and tomatoes and blend together. let the chilies and tomatoes cool down. use some of the water you used to cook them in to thin chilie salsa a bit. Hope you enjoy this.

  • What I like you may think is way to hot. Salsa can be made with out without tomatoes and even made with all veggies. I make mine with Tomatoes, Jalepeno's cilantro purple onions parsley and garlic.
