There is nothing like a fresh, addictive, salsa....
...and then there was none! Opps ;)
Complexity Level: Easy
Fire Roasted Salsa
1 12oz. Jar Roasted Red Peppers
1 Habanera (remove stem leave in seeds)
1 Jalapeno (remove stem, leave in seeds)
12 Roma Tomatoes
1 bunch Cilantro
2 ½ Limes
1 tbsp Salt
1 ½ Red Onions
6 cloves Garlic
To start, roughly dice your tomatoes, onion, and halve the limes. Place about 6-7 roma tomatoes into a food processor with the bunch of cilantro (roughly cut and de stemmed), salt, 6 garlic cloves, and the juice from 2 of the limes. Turn the food processor on and puree.
Pour this into a large mixing bowl, and return the food processor for a second round. Place the remaining tomatoes, onion, the rest of the lime juice, and the roasted red peppers into the food processor, but this time pulsate 10-12 times to chop the ingredients, not puree. In doing this the salsa will have a smooth and slightly textured consistency.
For more heat, add more jalapeno and habanera. This recipe as is has a zing, is highly addictive, and will leave even the picky eaters happy! The spice is mild to medium, depending on your palette! If a milder salsa is what you crave, remove the seeds from the jalapeno and skip on the habanera. This will give a nice light heat index and make for a fabulous mild dip!
**Make it Hotter! Grill your Habanero and Jalapeno before adding to the salsa, and doulble or triple up on them to really spice up your night!
Thanks for dipping in!
