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!!

How to Make Texas Homemade Salsa

Step-by-Step

  1. To 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.
  2. In 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.
  3. Add 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!
