salsa recipes

edited 7:35AM in EggHead Forum
I know this really isn't related to the BGE but here goes anyway. Does anybody have a good salsa recipe that they would like to share. I didn't see any posted in the recipe section. By the way I have a large BGE that I have had for about 2 years and absolutly love it!

    Chas from MO,
    If you got to the New West Knife works site and click on their Salsa recipe, I don't think you will be dissapointed.
    It isn't a "traditional salsa" but is REALLY good.
    I made a batch up last weekend, and it was a real hit.
    Trt it and let me know what you think.

    Those are some good looking knives. Handles are awesome!! I'll keep an eye on the steak knife set. (even if I can only buy one blade) Mac

  • Chas from MO, easy to make Salsa & great tasting.[p]

    12 roma (plum) tomatoes
    2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
    1 small onion, quartered
    1 jalapeno chile pepper
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    [p] Directions
    1 Preheat the broiler.
    2 In a medium baking dish, place roma (plum) tomatoes, garlic, onion and jalapeno chile pepper.
    Drizzle with olive oil.
    3 Checking often, broil 5 to 10 minutes, or until outsides of vegetables are charred.
    4 Remove vegetables from heat.
    Remove and discard tomato cores, jalapeno stem and garlic skins.
    5 In a food processor, coarsely chop the charred vegetables. Transfer to a medium bowl and mix in cumin, salt, lime juice and cilantro

  • Chas from MO,
    Here's what I use, from the Coyote Cafe cookbook, by Mark Miller. Simple and very tasty.[p]2T diced onion
    2C tomatoes, chopped into 1/4 inch cubes
    2 serrano chiles, finely chopped
    2T finely chopped cilantro
    2t sugar
    1/4 cup Mexican beer
    2t salt
    juice of one lime[p]Put onion in a strainer, rinse with hot water, and drain. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.[p]Note: More sugar may be used if the tomatoes are acidic, but make sure the salsa does not taste of sugar.[p]
    Makes about 2 cups.

  • Chas from MO,[p]This recipe is top notch. Use garden fresh tomaters for the best flavor.
    16 cups tomatoes,peeled & chopped
    4 cups onions,chopped
    1 cup Jalepeno peppers,chopped & seeded
    1 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup salt
    3 tbsp garlic powder
    1 1/2 tbsp chilli powder
    1 tsp black pepper
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp alum
    2 cans green chilles-sm. cans
    2 tsp cilantro
    2 cans tomato paste-sm. cans
    Combine all and cook 1 1/2 hours in large pot on simmer.
    Makes about 1 gallon of salsa.
    For thicker salsa (I recommend)draining some of the water after simmering.[p]If you try it you'll love it and make it again[p]Mark
