James’ Jammin Salsa: (SUPER FAST!)
(super fast with a food processor or if you don’t have one, chop the items by hand; after you make the salsa you can also add chopped fresh tomatoes onions or peppers too if you like it chunkier!)
-1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained well (found in tomato sauce section of grocery store)
-1 red or white onion, cut in quarters
-1 Serrano or Jalapeno chili (more if you want; or do a different chili)
-1 clove of garlic (you can use more or omit it)
-Small or large handful of cilantro leaves, washed and dried (more or less to taste)
-juice of one lime with some lime zest
-salt, pepper to taste
-1 bell pepper, orange, red or green (optional; I don’t like bell peppers lol)
-pinch of Cayenne pepper
Put the cilantro, seeded chili, and garlic in the food processor and pulsate items until you get to the desired size; I like a mince. (Taste the chili to see how hot it is so you know how much to use. Each chili will vary in heat.)
Other than the tomatoes, place all other ingredients in the food processor and pulse a little larger than the desired size.
Finally, add the drained tomatoes. ONLY Pulse 2-4 times because if you over do it, you will create a froth and ruin the texture of the salsa. ENJOY!
-Use any chili’s that you want. Remember with Jalapeno’s that they vary greatly in hotness. One will be super hot and one will almost be like a bell pepper. Take a small piece on the tip and taste first.
-You can add anything that you want. A pinch of oregano, a little chili flake, chili salt, tobasco or anything that you’d like.
-For easy guacamole, take a cup of the salsa and add a cup of avocado and mix. Add the juice of a lime with a little zest. Easy, fast and so good.
