Smoking hot salsa

Submitted by: CRZYLLAMA71

Introduction

Why settle for ordinary salsa out of the jar when you can make your own in less then 5 minutes! Why settle for ordinary salsa out of the jar when you can make your own in less then 5 minutes!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    Salt, 1 tsp
    Lime Juice, 1 lime yields
    Whhite Onions, raw, 1 medium
    2 Peppers, hot chili, red, fresh or chipolte
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 5 plum tomato
    Cilantro, raw, 5 tbsp chopped or one bunch

    You can make this in 5 minutes or less with fresh ingredients, or if you like a smokier taste, toss tomatoes and onions on the grill until skins are lightly blackening and then blend.

    Red onions will give a darker color and sweeter taste then traditonal white mexican onions.

    Fresh cilantro is a must. You can not successively subsitute dried.

    I prefer the Italian or roma tomatoes for their sturdier character and less juice/seed content. If fresh, ripe roma's are not available, look for vine riped or heriloom. Stay away from the scary pink looking, tasteless thing grocery stores try to tell us is a tomotoe!

Directions

Take a mini blender or food processor and chop tomatoes and quartered red onion. Once chuncky, add cilantro and 2 chipolte chili's (canned smoked jalopenos). Once blended to your preferred consistancy, add fresh lime juice and salt to taste.

Serve with baked chips or use as you would use salsa...on chicken, fish, in tacos, fajitas, etc.
