Does anyone have a good and easy recipe for salsa? I just don't think the salsa here is the same! I'm actually not a fan of the fresh salsa (usually has too much of an onion and cilantro for my tastes) but I'm willing to try making my own :-)
I HATE cilantro!
So I totally understand.
I don't make salsas usually because I'm more of a "pico de gallo" person. But if I had to make a salsa, I favor a chipotle salsa. My step-mother owns a Mexican restaurant in El Paso, Texas and this is her recipe:
28oz can of peeled fire-roasted tomatoes (if you can roast tomatoes yourself, do it and ditch the can but it's not totally necessary. If you do fresh, add a splash of water)
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup of cilantro leaves (use your own taste)
1-2 chipotle peppers from a can (these are widely available in UK stores and again to your taste since the original recipe says a whole can but we love mega spicy food)
2 tablespoons of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
Put it all in a food processor and blend.
I'll ask my family and see if they have others.
