This is a new recipe for me. I was given a huge amount of tomatoes by two different friends from their gardens. I am so thankful for homegrown tomatoes...they are nothing like the ones you get in a grocery store! They are soooo much tastier!! I didn't want them to go bad before I could use them so I decided I would try to make homemade salsa. I have lived in Texas my entire life so salsa is pretty much a staple at my home but I have always used canned tomatoes. I absolutely love the idea of making things fresh and homemade...seems like it always taste yummier and this was no exception!!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

10 medium
garden tomatoes, (approx. size of tennis ball)
1 large

1
jalapeno, seeded
20
fresh garlic cloves
1/3 bunch
cilantro
1/2 - 1 tsp

How to Make Texas Homemade Salsa

Step-by-Step

  • 1To remove the skin easily, make a small slit in the tomato, maybe an inch or so. Drop them in boiling water for 1-2 minutes or until you see skin draw apart where the slit was made. Remove tomatoes from water and place in ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • 2In a food processor, add all the other ingredients except tomatoes and pulse until you get them the consistency that you want them. I did not want large chunks so I let the processor run until they were pureed.
  • 3Add tomatoes to the mixture and pulse until all is combined. I think a little chunkier with the tomatoes is better but it is all a matter of choice. Add salt and lime juice to your liking. Chill and serve with chips!
