San Antonio Salsa Recipe

San Antonio Salsa Recipe


4-5 Serrano peppers – pull off stems
1 bunch green onions – finely chopped
¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves (fresh)
4-5 cloves of garlic
2 large cans of Whole tomatoes
½ tsp cumin powder
lemon wedge
½ tsp salt

Take 3 of the tomatoes from one of the cans and put it into the blender with the peeled garlic cloves and the peppers

Blend until a puree. Do not get this into your eyes!

Add the rest of the tomatoes except ONE, salt, & cumin. Save the tomato sauce in the can. Hit the “pulse” on your blender and BARELY mix it up so it doesn’t get soupy.

Stir in the onions and cilantro leaves

Squirt some lemon juice in there and mix some more

Taste and see if you need more salt

If it’s too hot, add a little of the tomato sauce and stir.

If it’s not hot enough, take everything out of the blender and puree one or two more peppers with your left over tomato from the can. (The peppers will just spin around in the bottom of your blender unless there’s a tomato in there with them) Then add the new puree to your salsa and mix it around.
