I love salsa and my cooked recipe is an all time favorite, but The Boyfriend really likes texture and chunk and freshness, so I have created a super easy recipe that is super yummy and takes about 10 minutes to prepare. I do used canned tomatoes. We get a #10 can of San Marzano tomatoes from Costco. I used around 2/3 of it to make Marinara (I'm using the crockpot today.)
OK, so as many of you know, I like spicy food, so feel free to seed the peppers, use less of them and leave out the Indian Chili Powder.
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 28 oz can tomatoes, crush with your hands
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp toasted cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp extra hot Indian chili powder (optional)
- 3 Serrano Chilies, chopped
- 1 canned chipotle
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Mix everything together, and allow mixture to sit for an hour; taste and adjust seasonings.
