Made some AWESOME salsa this afternoon using tomatoes, jalapeños, and onions from our garden. Added some minced garlic and cilantro from the store. Made a mild batch for my girls who are visiting for the weekend, and a hotter batch for me and my wife. We also fried some flour tortillas for chips. About a quart of salsa in the fridge for later!

Tasty snack!

It's not homemade, but I've been enjoying Salsa on our homegrown baked potatoes.

I'm not much into salsa, but can appreciate any home grown foods for sure!

Some homemade salsa with a little kick would hit the spot right now.

Great little recipe I put together some years ago which I enjoy! This is just the base recipe to make a somewhat small amount but I always end up doubling the recipe. In addition, depending on how hot I want it I leave the seeds in the jalapeño's and use them whole verses removing the seeds and membranes.

Pico de Gallo
[/FONT]
[FONT="]or Salsa Fresca whichever you prefer[/FONT]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 medium ripe tomatoes
1 large white onion
2 green onions
[FONT="]1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped[/FONT]
2 fresh jalapeño's seeded and chopped
[FONT="]1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt[/FONT]

Chop all ingredients into small diced pieces and thoroughly combine.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A fantastic refreshing taste with corn or homemade flour tortilla chips as an afternoon snack or an added condiment to accompany your favorite burrito, enchilada or any of your favorite Mexican dishes. Sprinkle a little on your taco for a different south of the border flavor. Either way you decide to use this Pico de Gallo recipe I'm sure you'll end up lovin' it. Enjoy!

Great minds think alike, We just had dinner. I grilled some steakburgers made from our calf. I always top mine with home made salsa and pepper jack cheese.

I make a homemade salsa that's great too, Roma tomatoes and jalapenos grilled then combine with garlic, cilantro, , pinch of salt and a dash of cumin . authentic Mexican. and the home made chips with a lil lime and some salt is defiantly the way to go!

Yes. Nothing compares to homemade salsa. I use chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, minced garlic, cilantro, jalapeno's, and lime juice in mine as well. Adjust jalapeno's to taste.

I can hardly stand to eat the store bought stuff anymore.

Yea, we don't buy much other than the materials to make something,we just finished canning our second batch of peach salsa, still drying sweet corn for corn meal and today were going to pick pears, might try to make pear salsa, see what it taste like?

That's really close to our recipe, probably most are close too the same. We do ours in cups for larger amounts to can, and i add alittle more heat than jalapenos, then to offset alittle we add an equal amount of peaches.

another great food to dip in salsa is cheese sticks (the breaded kind you put in the oven or deep fryer to heat up)
