Salsa Sauce Recipe
Recipe type: Salsa
Cuisine: Mexican
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1½ Cups
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 2 medium size jalapeno peppers or 4 serrano peppers
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Salt added to taste
  1. Dry roast or griddle roast the tomatoes and hot peppers on a baking sheet or griddle at medium heat, turning occasionally until they are blackened and soft.
  2. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Remove as much skin as possible.
  4. Cut the peppers in half in order to remove the veins and seeds from the interior.
  5. Put the peppers, the fresh chopped cilantro, and tomatoes into a blender and blend repeatedly for intervals of no more than 4 or 5 seconds at a time. The purpose of this is to help preserve a certain amount of grittiness, as opposed to making a completely liquefied puree.
  6. Transfer contents into a bowl. Thin with a small amount of water and season with salt added to taste.
  7. Enjoy it as a topping on many foods
