Restaurant Style Salsa

posted in: Blog, Lenten Recipes | 0

I love making salsa with veggies fresh out of my garden.  Unfortunately, in November, my tomatoes are either gone or green.  Not so great when trying to make salsa. 🙂 . That said, with the first major frost, I needed to pick all my leftover jalepeños at once…I probably have 50 of them in my kitchen now!  Salsa is my go-to jalepeño dish, so I decided to try making salsa with canned tomatoes.  It actually turned out pretty good!

Restaurant Style Salsa
Course: Sauces and Dips
Ingredients
  • 1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 jalepeño peppers minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 red onion minced
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • honey to taste
  • cilantro (fresh or dried) to taste
  • garlic and onion powder to taste
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Mince the peppers, garlic and onion. Place in medium size bowl
  2. Drain diced tomatoes. Pour into bowl with vegetables.
  3. Pour in crushed tomatoes. If you like a little less liquid, only put in about 3/4 of the can.
  4. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Add in apple cider vinegar. Stir thoroughly
  6. Add honey (you may need to microwave it) to taste.
  7. Add cilantro, salt, garlic power and onion powder to taste.
  8. Enjoy with tortilla chips! It also works well as a spaghetti sauce.
Recipe Notes
I used a neat little chopper that cut down the prep time significantly.  It allowed me to chop all the vegetables in about 5 minutes time.  It's well worth the investment!
