I had to go to a meeting where I was supposed to bring a simple appetizer. So a made a fresh salsa with tortilla chip, doesn’t get more simple then that. It was a big hit; this is one of the best salsa recipes I have ever made. Not to mention the right time of year since yesterday I pulled the last of the onions and tomatoes out of my garden.
4 jalapeno chile peppers
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
1 (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes (drained)
Preheat oven to 400*
Place jalapeno chile peppers on a medium baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 15 minutes, or until roasted. Remove from heat and chop off stems.
Place jalapeno chile peppers, garlic, onion, white sugar, salt, ground cumin and diced tomatoes with green chile peppers in a blender or food processor. Chop using the pulse setting for a few seconds. Mix in whole peeled tomatoes, drained. Chop using the pulse setting to attain desired consistency. Transfer to a medium bowl. Cover and chill in refrigerator until serving.
