Salsa is perhaps the most popular condiment in our house. No only is it fresh, yummy and healthy but it only takes minutes to throw it together. You can use a food processor or blender. Just throw the ingredients in and pulse to mix. You can blend until it is chunky or smooth which ever you prefer. After making your own salsa you will never want to go back to the jarred ones again.
Rough chop 1/4 red onion, 1 grilled poblano pepper, 1 large handful of cilantro and add 1-2 chipotle chillies depending on how hot you want it. Put this all in a blender or food processor. Add one 16 oz can good diced tomatoes. I like to use Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes.
I like my salsa a bit chunky but not too big and it will take about 6-8 pulses in the food processor.
This salsa is great right after you make it and gets even better the next day. It does not have a long shelf life. I recommend 3-4 days when you store it in an air tight container in the fridge.
You can enjoy this salsa with chips, tacos (it is particularly good with grilled fish tacos), quesadillas, scrambled eggs, grilled fish, grilled chicken, grilled skirt steak, fajitas and the list could go on….
