Homemade Salsa

Mr. ShoeFanatic has been yenning to make homemade salsa for quite some time. When I mentioned making Shrimp Tacos, he jumped at the chance to whip this up. It didn't take long at all and was amazingly fresh.

2 cans diced tomatoes
1 whole tomato, quartered
1/2 red onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 c pickled sliced jalapenos
Juice of 2 limes
1 t sugar
1 t red wine vinegar
1/2 t salt
10 grinds fresh pepper
1/4 t granulated garlic
1 bunch cilantro (we left this out)

In food processor, pulse canned and fresh tomato until finely chopped. Remove tomatoes and pulse onion, garlic, cilantro and jalapeno until finely chopped.

Combine the processed mixtures and the remaining ingredients and refrigerate before serving. The longer this sits, the better the flavor.

Hands down, this is the Best Salsa Ever. There were no crunchy raw onions yet it was chunky. Everything was very fresh. And it was so better the next day!

Eat your heart out, El Paso.

  1. I don't have my own homemade salsa recipe so I am always on the lookout for a good one - this looks like one!
