Never Buy Salsa Again

One of the best part of visiting Mexico was the food. After trying the local dishes prepared as they locals enjoy them, I don't think there is any way I could ever buy "Old El Paso" again. The fresh stuff is just so much better in every way. I highly recommend you don't ever either.

Salsa Mexicano

  • Fresh Tomatoes and Onions in 3:1 ratio
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Fresh Lime
  • Jalapeño
  1. Dice Tomatoes finely
  2. Dice Onions finely
  3. Add chopped Cilantro, Jalapeño, and Lime juice to taste
  4. Store in fridge for flavours to mix at least 1 hour
It's best to peel and seed the Tomatoes, and chop everything by hand. A food processor will tend to mush things, leaving some pieces too large and some too small, and the salsa will lose its character.

Mmm, that sounds like pico de gallo. :) Another way I know how to do make is to lay the same ingredients (minus the lime) on a baking sheet and broil until slightly charred. Tip the whole thing into a food processor and blend.
