“easy salsa recipe with fresh tomatoes corn and tomato salsa recipe”

What is Demi Glace? I am a huge fan of demi-glace for preparing classic sauces like mushroom or peppercorn sauce but I have to warn you, it is a huge process to make classic demi glace at home.  It is not for the faint of heart but well worth the effort – at least once. […]
This was too spicy for me (not mild!) and very vinegar-y! I know the acidity is important, but tomatoes seem pretty acidic on their own, right? I’ll stick to my old recipe (which is time tested from my mother in law, but I’m not sure if it’s officially approved by a lab) but I do like your skin slip method. Took longer than 3 min for mine. And the less ripe store-bought Romas didn’t really slip off. Garden ones did, but they weren’t Romas.
—Oh…this is such a lovely recipe. My across-the-street neighbour planted tomatoes in my garden (!) and that of my neighbour, and I picked them all yesterday and made this relish. It is DIVINE! I doubled the batch and am thrilled with it.

“No chopping, dicing, or mincing here! My family has been making this easy and fresh salsa for years. Both my father and I have won salsa contests with this recipe as the base and have tweaked it with the optional seasonings listed. You can also control the heat by seeding the peppers or omitting the serrano, but we prefer the heat and flavor of both peppers. I usually add a pinch of sugar which intensifies the flavor of the peppers but my father doesn’t. A fantastic basic recipe to play with… so easy, you’ll never buy jarred salsa again!”
My whole point is, if you have a good blender or food processor, making salsa at home is a total snap. It’ll keep in the fridge for as long as it’ll last (which is never very long, in my experience) and is absolutely worth every second of effort.
Yum… I do love me some salsa! This is exactly my recipe except I do not use cumin or honey. I will definitely give this one a try!! Another recipe I’ve made is to throw fresh tomato, onion, jalapeno and garlic into the oven and allow them to roast until the onion is translucent… then toss those with the cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper into the food processor, toss it into the fridge for a bit to get cold and PRESTO, delish!! The roasted veggies give the salsa a wonderful flavor. YUM, I must make some salsa soon. My tastebuds are dancing!! Thanks for sharing :o)
Allow the to cool slightly. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the roasted veggies with the juice of 2 limes, cilantro, sugar and generous amount of salt and pepper. Blend until mixture is smooth. Taste and add more salt if needed (we definitely did!).
The humble tomato packs a nutritious punch. One medium tomato has about as much fiber as a slice of whole wheat bread. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins C and A, plus contain potassium and phosphorous.
I loved this salsa, paired it with beef tacos. The best homemade salsa I’ve made thus far. I added some extra garlic but otherwise followed the recipe. My wife found it spicy but delicious, whereas I could have stood some extra heat.
My husband made homemade salsa this year and he didn’t use any vinegar in his recipe – just the lime juice. He canned several jars and they have too much lime in them – what should I do to balance that – add vinegar or more tomatoes once we open the jar? thanks for the help.

What advantage does simmering the Salsa make? Is this how it is done in most Mexican Restaurants? Believe me I am not criticizing I am just trying to learn. If this is a necessary step that I have been omitting and it will make my Salsa taste better I am all for it. I have just never heard of doing it before.
This recipe looks great and I’d love to try it! However for all of those reducing the vinegar content, my understanding is that the amount of vinegar is important for adequate preservation. I would be cautious about using the product fairly quickly if lowering the amount of acid in the recipe. Perhaps I am mistaken though.
Man! I love spicy hot salsas too much. You can’t imagine eating corn tortillas with a spicy salsa. Salsa makes every dish more yummier. Eating some spicy salsa like those mentioned above with Mexican taco or Mexican rolls doubles their taste.
Using tongs, remove tomatoes one at a time from boiling water and immediately drop in ice water. Allow to set for at least one minute before peeling (the skin will come off easily) and scraping out the seeds.
Hi Michele, Thanks for your comment and I’m so glad it worked out. The reason your sauce would’ve been watery is that the recipe calls for cooking the sauce uncovered on the stovetop so the excess moisture can cook out. A slow cooker retains the moisture, so what you did in terms of thickening it and removing the lid was perfect!
