I’m back with another entry in my Farmers Market Eats Series, and this time I’m bringing you 10-Minute Homemade Salsa!
If you’ve been to the market this weekend, then you’ve seen the bright piles of tomatoes at bargain prices. My salsa is the perfect thing to bring to those end of summer gatherings you have coming up. Or maybe with a margarita on your back porch while you enjoy the last of summer and welcome the crisp air that fall brings? Whatever you use it for, knowing that you made it yourself, and in a quick 10 minutes, will make it taste that much better. So without further ado, I bring to you, SALSA!
- 3 1/2 cups tomatoes save one cup for after you've blended everything together
- 4 hot peppers
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 cloves garlic
Add all the ingredients to your food processor, saving one cup of tomatoes for later. Test to see how you like the spice level. You can try adding paprika, cumin, cayenne--up to you!
Once you're happy with the spice level, add in 1 cup of diced tomatoes. I prefer my salsa to be on the chunky side, and this last minute addition helps it reach that level. Pulse a couple times, and enjoy!
*If you don't have a food processor you can chop up everything by hand and mix it all together in a bowl. It will be a little bit more chunky, but the flavor will still be 100% delicious!
