Because several have asked for a recipe, I’m sharing this but it really isn’t a recipe. There are real recipes on the internet.
The ingredients are:
- tomatoes, chopped, I leave the seeds and juice in there. I use half Roma and half slicing type tomatoes.
- onions – however many you want, chopped as finely or coarsely as you want.
- jalapeno peppers – I do remove the seeds. Chop as finely or coarsely as you want. Some are hotter than others!
- cilantro – however much you want. I always want a LOT and Vince wants none so I usually divide the contents before adding the cilantro.
- Salt to taste
- Lime juice to taste
That’s it! It will keep several days in the fridge.
For the batch shown above, I think I used about 9 or 10 tomatoes, one very large sweet onion, 4 jalapeno peppers (these were medium hot) and a bundle plus part of another bundle of cilantro. I added the juice of 3 limes but the limes I’m buying this year are about as dry as a bone. I did not add salt since I was freeze drying it. I will add salt when I rehydrate it.
I eat it on everything. Vince hardly eats it. He prefers the salsa you buy in a jar. I put it on eggs, dried beans, especially black eyed peas, meats, avocados . . you name it and if I have pico, I put it on there.
