I love canning, and salsa is one of my favorite things to can. Only problem is, canning takes about a full days worth of work. You blanch, chop, boil, adjust and then you have to actaully can it all properly. I do love it but sometimes I just want the salsa, not the process, so this is a sure fire way to get your salsa fix on in no time! All you need is a food processor ( have you noticed I’m using it an awful lot lately?) Adjust the heat yourself by picking hotter peppers and or adding more. This is a basic quick recipe so you can easily change it up. Add more onions, choose a mild or hotter pepper, you name it. Taste first, adjust after.
4 cups chopped chopped tomatoes – Roma is best or Salsa
1 small red onion, roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 serano chile
1 jalepeno chile
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon chipotle powder
pinch of sugar
fresh cilantro, to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
