This is a fresh, authentic salsa. When my friend Carol brought me a container of this salsa, I promptly threw away every other salsa recipe I had. Everytime I bring it somewhere it disappears completely. Make it the night before and it keeps for weeks in the frig. The heat is present, but not overwhelming and fades quickly.

How to Make James Kim's Salsa

Step-by-Step

  • 1Bring 2C water to boil in microwave. Place serrano peppers in hot water for 30 seconds. Discard water. Cut away the stems of the peppers and discard.
  • 2Drain whole peeled tomatoes. Pull Cilantro leaves off their stems and use only the leaves.
  • 3Place all ingredients in the food processor. Mix together until liquified.
  • 4Transfer to storage container and refrigerate overnight. The next day it's ready to eat.
  • 5Heat can be controlled by removing seeds and membranes from peppers. Serranos can vary in heat, so I sometimes add 1 jalepeno pepper for good measure.
