Salsa recipe – restaurant style

And now it’s time to make it at home.
It’s healthier, it’s less expensive and it tastes SO desirable! Flavor, flavor, flavor – self-made salsa has the flavour you genuinely can’t purchase in a jar!
What goes in salsa
Here are the elements in my salsa recipe. the important thing things that add super flavor to salsa are cumin, cilantro/coriander, garlic, onion, and jalapeño. I also like to feature canned inexperienced chiles which provide brilliant smokiness and small contact of heat (not a whole lot).
Canned inexperienced chiles are a famous Tex-Mex factor in us that’s no longer (but) available here in Australia. I bring returned dozens on every occasion I visit America, that’s how a good deal I love it! It’s clean to sub the flavor using chargrilled peppers – though they are crimson, now not inexperienced, they upload the equal smokiness that the green chiles add.
after you’ve gathered your components, it’s as simple as plonk and blitz. Make it as chunky or easy as you like. I like mine cleaner because I locate you get better flavor whilst the onion etc is blitzed up pretty finely.
also, the chunkier the salsa, the extra it separates whilst sitting around. So it holds up higher the smoother it’s far.
How and what to serve with salsa
the plain manner to serve is as a dip for corn chips or something appropriate for dunking, however, there are a whole bunch of different in reality brilliant methods to use salsa! here are a few ideas:
- Topping/dipping for tacos, burritos, fajitas, nachos, quesadillas – essentially the whole thing and anything Mexican

For the healthiest dip platter ever, serve salsa with crudités (that’s a fancy word for veggie sticks), like this one – an image from my Hummus recipe.
