Since our garden is growing out of control, this weekend August and I set out to make some salsa using home-grown tomatoes. I looked online through a couple of salsa recipes and all were a little more work and ingredients than we were interested in. We wanted a no-cook, low ingredient, tasty recipe. Turns out our favorite Royitos salsa fit the bill.
Only 4 ingredients! Granted we weren’t sure how much of each ingredient we needed but we decided to give it a go.
50 Juliette Tomatoes
4 Serrano and 2 jalapeño peppers (this can be modified depending on how spicy you want it, but we were going for mild)
We started by blending all of the tomatoes. We used small Juliette tomatoes which is why we needed so many. Of course, once we have a sufficient number of regular sized tomatoes we’ll use quite a bit less.
After the tomatoes were well blended, we added 4 serrano peppers (only 2 with seeds) and 2 jalapeño peppers. At first we were nervous about the spiciness of the serranos but apparently 50 blended tomatoes masks the spiciness quite well. We had to add a lot more peppers than I originally anticipated and we aren’t even spicy-lovin’ people!
Add in the juice of 2 lemons and a couple shakes of the salt shaker.
Blend everything together and voila, restaurant-worthy salsa.
Do you like spicy or mild salsa? Ever made your own?
