“This is a simple salsa recipe I learned from my brother-in-law who worked at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Boiling the jalapeno peppers is the magic to the recipe. This is great with tortilla chips, tacos, or other Mexican recipes.” - by PVKELLY
Original recipe yields 4 cups
- Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil; add jalapeno peppers. Reduce heat to medium and boil peppers for 15 minutes; drain. When cool enough to handle, remove stems of peppers.
- Place jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, garlic salt, cumin, black pepper, white pepper, and cilantro in a blender. Blend to your desired texture, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

"So simple yet so delicious! It has a nice amount of heat, without popping your eyes out. The only tweak I made was to add a bit of salt since I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I used dice..." See mored tomatoes, so I only had to blend for about 8-10 seconds. I made some baked tortilla chips with whole wheat tortillas. So good! I gave hubby a taste and all he could say was WOW! This is a keeper! It's a nice recipe to have on hand when unexpected guests stop by."
"This is fabulous salsa. I do not care for pepper black or white and I do not like hot foods, ironically I loved this. I was so tempting to reduce spices or use some fresh garlic. Don't change the spic..." See morees. I used 1.5 cups of fresh garden tomatoes peeled and chopped and then added a can of petite diced tomatoes to make the 28 oz size. For the jalepenos I used about a 1/2 can drained 4oz size of diced jalepenos. They are already prepared. The salsa was kind of like the restaurant salsa, they serve with chips, if it was completely fresh. I have made a lot of salsas and this one is really good. I put it in my Vitamix on about speed 7 or 8 for 7 seconds. Thanks, Roberto."
"I've long suspected the key to the awesome salsa at my favorite authentic Mexican restaurants was canned tomatoes, so I was excited to try this. I made it twice: the first time, I followed it exactly..." See more. The thing about salsa is that it's very subjective and easy to tweak, so I gave this five stars, even though I found it a little too soupy, a little too hot and it was missing something... which I realized was onions and garlic. So I tried it again: draining the tomatoes, adding two tablespoons of diced onions, a 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and taking it down to one jalapeno. Success! This is a great recipe to tweak for your own tastes. Love it!"
