I hope my brother-in-law, Jaime, doesn't mind that I'm posting his salsa recipe. I'll post and ask for permission later. This is one of my very favorite salsas, second only to Casa Gamino's in Paramount, California. It's rather time consuming cutting up the tomatoes and everything, but it makes a ton and lasts a while, AND it's so fresh and tasty.
- 6 medium ripe tomatoes
- 6 roma tomatoes
- 1/2 red onion
- 4-6 green onions
- 4 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1 tablespoon to 1/4 cup hot sauce, depending on desired heat
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- one small bunch cilantro, chopped
Finely chop tomatoes, red & green onions and throw into a large bowl with all of the other ingredients except the cilantro. Preferably, use a hand blender to partially blend the mixture. Stir in cilantro. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Store in a stoneware or glass container, covered, in the refrigerator.
Makes about 8-10 cups of salsa.
