My boyfriend and I made your salsa the other day…OMG!! We try a new recipe every year because we haven’t found one yet with a WOW factor…until now! Thanks so much for sharing. I just printed about 20 recipes off your website to try. Our search for salsa recipes is finally over, there’s no way you could improve on this one.
I made this and it’s amazing! I left Texas about a year ago and have been missing authentic Tex-Mex salsa so much… until I found this recipe! I use 4 jalapenos, and leave some seeds in, to make it a little spicier 🙂
Arrange the tortillas in a stack and cut into 6 equal wedges. Pour about 1-inch of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-fat frying thermometer. Fry just a few at a time, turning occasionally, until crisp and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired. Store in an airtight container.
This is a really delicious BASIC salsa recipe. I have no idea why anyone would say it tastes disgusting. You have to make sure you have fresh ingredients though, particularly, fresh, and tasty, tomatoes. You can’t make tasty salsa without tasty ingredients! I use a jalepeno (and remove some of the seeds for my kids) and extra garlic every time. Salt plentifully. We serve it with everything Mexican – tonight chicken enchiladas, but also with carnitas tacos, chicken/steak fajitas. Love it!

The tomatoes come last, just because I want to be the most gentle with them, but I guess it’s not all that important. Everything thus far goes from the food processor to the 4-cup measuring cup, then into the pot.
I tried this and loved it! I used one banana pepper, one large jalepinio (sp) and topped the rest of the cup with yellow peppers. I don’t care for green peppers so I just used one cup of them and the second cup of a mix of yellow and orange. I love garlic, so a added 4 cloves total. I used fresh cilantro and oragano. I chopped my tomatoes and tried to remove seeds and extra juice as I went along. It turned out fantastic. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing it!! 5 stars!!
Wearing latex or plastic gloves, chop the jalapenos finely, removing veins and seeds if you wish to reduce the heat. (If you wish to reduce the heat further, replace some with regular green peppers, but do not increase the total weight of peppers in the recipe.) Chop the onion finely. Chop tomatoes coarsely. Add the peppers, onions, tomatoes, lemon juice and salt to a large saucepan.
I made this recipe over the weekend – my first attempt at salsa. It’s fantastic. I ended up using green peppers because that’s what I had in my garden. The half-pint that I didn’t process starts with a mild sweet taste, followed by the pepper kick. Thanks for sharing this, along with easy steps to follow.
i stumbled across this and was drawn to the natural ingredients, but is so expensive to make, i usually make salsa with jarred tomatoes but i went to trader joes and got three pounds of tomatoes to make this, it just didn’t taste that great to be honest, it tasted very fresh but not really like salsa like i’m used to, and mine was also a pinker color
