I discovered this quick and tasty recipe while working in a restaruant. After working very long hours the kitchen staff would whip this recipe up and serve it with warm tortilla chips and icy cold margaritas. It was a great way to bond with co-workers and put the long days work behind you.

"Rather than a food processor I use a stone "Molcahate" to grind this. The coarser texture feels better in the mouth and the stone bowl adds "authenticity" to the presentation. "


1 large can Whole tomatoes
1 bunch Green onions; coarse chopped
1 bunch Cilantro; coarse chopped
Lime Juice; to taste
Jalapeno peppers; (sliced & pickled), to taste
Salt; to taste

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Put all the ingredients in the food processor and process till desired consistency is reached. The flavors really meld after and hour or so.


So Quick, So easy! Add just a few jalapenos at first. Also brands very in spicyness.

Very good for a quickie salsa. Made it mild but would like to kick up the heat next time. Better than the salsa from many Mexican restaurants I have been to.

Pretty good homemade salsa! Didnt have a food processor so I used my blender on low for just a few seconds, came out great.

Ok. I overdid the cilantro which is very powerful. Start small and slowly add to taste. Not bad quick and easy. Better the next day after flavors melded. Thanks for the basics.
