I have one of the best, homemade recipes for a mild to hot salsa and with the right kitchen tools, you can have some too! it’s easy to make and tastes great.
Start by shopping for the following ingredients.
10 Roma Tomatoes
2 Green Bell Peppers
1 Yellow Onion (small)
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Lemon (small)
Remember that your vegetables grew up in fields covered in pesticides and herbicides (yuk!), so it is very important that you gently rub the vegetables under running water. Don’t use any soaps or other toxic cleaning chemicals, because these chemicals will leave a residue of their own on your veggies; and commercial sprays and washes sold for cleaning vegetables really aren’t any better than cleaning thoroughly with plain water, so don’t waste your money on them.
Now that the veggies are clean, choose your equipment. Will it be an electric chopper or a manual chopper? I prefer the manual chopper for the exercise. You will also need a bowl, cutting board, and a sharp knife.
First start by chopping the Roma tomatoes up and placing them in the bowl. Before I put my chopped tomatoes into the bowl, I like to drain the juice from the tomatoes because I prefer a thicker salsa.
Second, you will want to chop the bell peppers. Start by cutting the tops off and remove the inside core of the pepper. Cut the pepper into quarter pieces before placing them in the chopper and chop the pepper into small pieces and place in the bowl.
Third, peal your onion, then cut it in half, then cut in half again. You will only need about 1/8 of the onion. Place the onion in the chopper.
Fourth, cut the top (the stem) off the jalapenos and place the jalapenos in the chopper.
Firth, remove the skin on the garlic cloves and place the garlic in the chopper.
Sixth, cut the lemon in half and then in half again. Again, you will only need about 1/8 of the lemon. Peal the skin off the pulp and place in the chopper.
Now you are ready to chop the remaining ingredients and place in the bowl.
Mix everything together, you might want to add 1/8 teaspoon of salt for taste. Choose your favorite chip and dig in.
