Easy Homemade Salsa Recipe
I’m very picky with salsa recipes and prefer them to be quick and easy. I know, two conflicting things as it’s hard to have easy to make but also taste good.
Thankfully this recipe is fairly easy to make with out a lot of work. Most of the time-consuming part is cutting the ingredients (it’s always best fresh cut).
Let’s get to it!
Preparation and Tips
There are a few ways to adjust the taste, spiciness, and consistency of your salsa. These are a few tips to help make it fit your taste buds!
How to blend salsa
Using any food blender (link to blender) will work, there’s nothing too thick in this recipe that will be hard to blend. I recommend using the pulse function on the blender to slowly get the salsa to your favorite level of mushy to chunky. I like mine a little chunky, so it didn’t take but a few pulses to get it perfect.
How spicy to make salsa
The recipe we’ll follow uses jalapenos to add spiciness. For a mild spicy flavor only add one jalapeno with no seeds or membrane. To add a little more spice, leave some seeds and membrane in. If you want it really spicy add all seeds and membrane and maybe a few more peppers!
When to eat
Don’t eat the salsa right away, refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour. The salsa tastes best when cooled and has had a chance to settle.
