I’ve tried a lot of homemade salsa recipes over the years some with fresh tomatoes, some with canned, some hand chopped, some easily and quickly done in a food processor. This is my friend Jill’s recipe, it is my current favorite. I think I prefer a chunky/ hand chopped salsa, but if I was in a hurry I’d throw all of these ingredients in a food processor and come out with a thinner, restaurant style salsa texture.
To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I fully prepare the salsa in the morning, refrigerate all day and serve when I’m ready.
-5-6 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
-1/2 green pepper, diced
-1/2 yellow pepper, diced
-juice and zest of 1 lime
-1/2 red onion, diced
-1 clove garlic, minced
-3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
-1 can Original diced tomatoes and chiles (Rotel), drained
-1 Tbsp sugar
-1 tsp salt
-2 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
Stir all ingredients together and refrigerate a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to combine.
