Fire Buddy: Roasted Jalapenos give this salsa the best of both worlds. Hot and spicy. Roasting the Jalapenos brings out the flavor. We use these on our breakfast burritos and you taste it for the rest of the day.

Remove most of the charred skin and the stems and seeds.Place Jalapenos in a food processorAdd one mid sized tomato (charred same as above).Add one quarter of a small white onion.2 small garlic cloves.1/2 teaspoon of salt1/2 teaspoon black pepper.Blend for about 10 seconds.

Billy the Kid Salsa: This salsa is unique, in my opinion, because it is the only one of its kind, as far as I know.

The recipe is simple. One simply adds 4 tablespoons of mole to 8 ounces of the salsa from your restaurant. It will then have the taste of the old Southwest and can be used as a very versatile condiment.

Dorita’s Hot Sauce: Inexpensive, easy to mix and blend and very delicious.

added on 2/12/2015 by Dora Perez

Partially Roasted: Everything but the tomatoes are roasted. A balance of spices and herbs, roasted and fresh ingredients help pull opposing flavors together for a smooth, medium spicy salsa.

3 – Hatch Chiles (or Anaheim) 2 – yellow peppers 2 – jalapenos (1 reserved) 1 – pasilla or poblano pepper 1 – medium white onion 10 – cloves garlic 6-10 – plumb or vine tomatoes 1 – bunch cilantro 1 – lime, red chili powder, ground oregano, ground cumin, sea salt, black pepper. Roast peppers (save 1 jalapeno), onion (quarter it) and the garlic on a grill or broil them. Remove skin and seed from peppers (your option as to how much of the seed you want to remove for spiciness). Place roasted items in blender and pulse until it starts to become a pulp like consistency. Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds. Chop up remaining jalapeno, remove seeds (optional again). Add to blender mixture and pulse till a pulp. (note, you may not need all tomatoes, I gradually add to the blender until I reach the 40z mark) Mixture will not be a brilliant red but it will turn overnight. Transfer contents to a sealable bowl, mix in 1tsp oregano, 1 tbsp chili power, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1tbsp salt. Measurements are apx, add all to taste. Chop cilantro, add 3/4 cup, mix in with salsa. Seal and refrigerate overnight (or at least 6 hours). The next day, add more cilantro if needed. Refrigerate again and serve.

Green Goddess: No cooking necessary! This salsa is a snap to make. It’s healthy, smooth and delicious with a bit of a kick. It goes very well on flautas and as a dip with chips.It complements beef tacos as well. For those people that are not crazy about tomatoes. This is the salsa for them.

Remove seeds from fresh jalapenos. The amount of jalapenos you use will depend on how spicy you want the salsa. 1 – 2 large jalapenos gives the recipe a good kick. Rough chop them. Rough chop half an onion. Rough chop 3 fresh garlic cloves. Blend these three ingredients with a cup of water in a blender until smooth. Spoon the pulp out of 3-4 avocados and add to mixture. Spoon 3 tablespoons of sour cream into the mix, add salt and pepper to taste and blend until smooth. Depending on the creaminess of the avocados you may need to add a bit more water. This salsa should be smooth and you should be able to pour it easily. Taste the final product for spiciness and creaminess. The color should be a light fresh green. At this point, you can add more jalapenos or more cream to taste.

Red Hot Strawberry Salsa: Sweet and Spicy! Like hot cinnamon candies, with vivid red color.

3 Roma Tomatoes, 1 Red Onion, 1 Red Bell Pepper, 1 or 2 Red Fresno Pepper(s), 2 limes, 3 or 4 cloves garlic, 10 strawberries, 1 Bunch Cilantro, 1/2 Tsp. (or more) Roasted Saigon Cinnamon,1/2 Tsp. (or more) Sea Salt, 1 Tbs. Strawberry Jelly – – -Dice the mild ingredients (Tomatoes, Bell Pepper, Strawberries) in larger chunks. Finely dice the Red Onion. Mince the garlic and Fresno pepper. Rinse and dry cilantro. Pluck about a palm full of leaves (no stems) from the cilantro bunch. Mince leaves, and add to bowl. Squeeze juice from 2 limes over salsa. Add cinnamon, salt, and jelly. Stir and let set for several hours before serving. Makes about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of salsa, perfect for a family meal for 4 people. Double the amounts for larger groups or for parties. – – – – Note that hot peppers can vary in heat from season to season, and depending where they are grown. Adjust for personal preference. The finer you mice the pepper, the more the heat will be spread evenly throughout the salsa with no unexpected surprises! Use one pepper to keep the flavor sweet and mild. Add more peppers and more cinnamon to increase the heat. The milder version is sweet and very kid-friendly, with a flavor somewhat like hot cinnamon candies.

Remove tomatoes and then remove the skins. Dice half the tomatoes into 1/4 squares, set aside in separate bowl. Blend the remaining half along with 2 tablespoons of tomato paste to thicken and reduce watery texture. (gives a slight sweet taste).Finely chop parsley and hot pepper chille, bell pepper, and celery. (poblano peppers make mild salsa). Remember to remove the seeds and veins from the peppers where the heat is located.Combine the above ingredients and add a little bit of cumin, and fresh key lime juice to taste. Stir well.

Rosa del Viento: Only one I’ve ever seen.

2 whole onions, caramelized in a pan with oil. 6 roasted habaneros. 6 cloves of roasted garlic. Take caramelized onions, garlic and roasted habaneros (no seeds) with oil, and blend until completely liquefied. Then put back in the pot and simmer to bring all the flavors out. Amounts can be altered to taste and/or heat. NOT necessarily good for chips, but hands down the best salsa for food, add to other salsas for heat/flavor etc. Love it!! Thank you! Love Macayo.
