Recipes From The Road- Homemade Salsa

When Sky was working in the corporate world, he had a Mexican co-worker who made amazing salsa. She refused to share the recipe until the day we finally announced we were leaving the company, and then she emailed it him. Technically this recipe requires a blender, and we don't have one with us...but because we were staying at a well equipped RV park we had access to great resources and we made use of them.

Here are the ingredients:

1/2 onion
6 Roma tomatoes
3 Garlic cloves
1 Jalapeno
2 Habanero (small)
1 Ts. Chicken broth powder
Garlic Salt (to taste)

The needed ingredients
 Finely chop the ingredients.

Chop, chop, chop!
 Stir-fry the chopped ingredients on a low heat for 5 to 10 minutes (depends on if you like your salsa more cooked or more fresh).

Stir-fry goodness
 Chop your cilantro finely. (We used parsley because that's all we had laying around, but cilantro is better)

Chop Chop Again, Slide to the Left, Slide to the Right...Oh wait, wrong song. 
Once the stir-fry ingredients have cooled, add them to the blender, along with the cilantro and dry spices and blend.
 Let the blended mixture marinate overnight in the refrigerator and then served chilled with your favorite chips (and Margarita beverage!)

The final product, num!
Happy Salsa-ing!


P.S. Wash your blender out well before making wouldn't want to end up with a spicy drink. Also, don't pick your nose while chopping jalapenos...
