Uncle Richie's Salsa

Friday, September 25, 2009

We were at my Aunt Terry's and Uncle Richie's a few weeks ago and we had the best salsa I've ever eaten. It had just the right amount spice and was just... perfect!  I was lucky enough to get the recipe and am proud to share it with you. Thanks Uncle Richie!

Uncle Richie's Salsa

1 16 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
3 small jalapeno peppers, chopped and seeded
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Combine tomatoes, peppers and onion in food processor and process until desired consistency. Add salt and cayenne pepper. Process again to mix. Store in refrigerator. Makes about 4 cups.

When working with the jalapenos, you can keep as many seeds or as few seeds, depending on how hot you want it. Just remember, the more seeds you keep, the hotter the salsa.

I never even thought of using canned tomatoes for salsa! It looks delicious.

I make my salsa on the grill with fresh tomatoes - they get all black on the outside but it gives the salsa an extra smokey flavor.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
