I will never write a cookbook because I eyeball everything. I season everything to taste. I cook by the seat of my pants and never look back. This salsa is a perfect example.
1 large can whole tomatoes
1 red onion
2-3 fresh jalapenos
In a blender or food processor add the tomatoes from the can, save the left over sauce. Rough chop the red onion and the jalapenos. Start with just 1 or 2, sometimes they are spicy and sometimes not. Add in a good handful of cilantro and the juice of half a lime. Salt and pepper to taste. It kinda takes takes more salt than you’d think.
Give all of that a whirl and taste it. If it’s too tomato-y try a bit more onion, if it’s too onion-y add a little of the tomato juice. You will immediately know if it needs salt. If you can’t quite decide what’s missing, it’s probably cilantro.
Just add small amounts, slowly until it’s how you like it.
Today I got crazy and added all the seeds and membranes with the jalapenos. It was pretty spicy but that’s what I like.
