I love salsa because it is so versatile. Salsa with chips; salsa on eggs; salsa with chicken. But I am picky with my salsa. For one, I like it on the chunkier side, similar to pico de gallo. I like it to have a little kick but not enough where I have to guzzle glasses of water to put the fire out. And I like it to be fresh, not from a jar and no preservatives.
Fresh Homemade Salsa Recipe
2 cups diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1 onion, diced (I have a tool for that!!)
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (boil pepper for 5 minutes to soften. Slice down the middle and remove seeds before dicing. The seeds are the super hot part!!)
1 bunch cilantro, chopped (leaves only — no stems because they are bitter tasting)
Seasonings: Cumin, salt, garlic (add to your taste. I usually use 1 teaspoon each of cumin and salt and a half teaspoon of powdered garlic)
