Man That’s Cooking
- 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
- 4 vine ripened tomatoes
- 2 jalapeno peppers
- 1 serrano pepper
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 lime juiced
- 1/4 red onion
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
First open the can of fire roasted tomatoes and drain the liquid out by emptying the can into a colander. Let it drip dry for a few minutes then add the fire roasted tomatoes to a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender but be careful not to blend on high speed or too much.
Next, slice the vine ripened tomatoes into quarters, then use a paring knife to remove the seeds. This is optional and we do this to reduce the liquid in the salsa. Cut the tomato quarters into smaller bits and add this to the food processor.
Next smash the garlic cloves to remove the skins, then chop the cloves. Add the garlic to the food processor.
Next cut the jalapeno and serrano peppers in half lengthwise, then remove the seeds. Cut the pepper halves into smaller chunks and add them to the food processor.
Next, cut 1/4 of a red onion into chunks and add this to the food processor.
Next cut the stems from 1/4 cup of cilantro, then roughly chop the leaves. Add the cilantro to the food processor.
Finally, add the juice of 1/2 of a lime and all the seasonings to the food processor. Pulse the food processor several times until the large chunks are pulled down into the blade. After this, run the food processor for 1 – 2 minutes. Pour the salsa into a container and place it in a refridgerator overnight or 24 hours to let the flavors combine.
