Have you tried making it? It’s incredibly easy.
I make it a couple of different ways.
The first way involves throwing a can of tomatoes (juice and all), a few cloves of garlic (peeled), a pepper or two, depending upon how hot you want it, a few sprigs of cilantro, some onion, and a squirt or two of lemon or lime juice into the blender or food processor. Process until you’re happy with the texture, and eat away.
The other way involves roasting the peppers. Halve and seed the peppers (if you want more heat, leave a few more seeds in–if you want less heat, remove all the seeds and the membrane) and roast on a baking sheet until the smell is unutterably divine. Then finish as above.
And this isn’t salsa, but I have to share this recipe because it’s SOOOOOOO stinkin’ good:
Get as many jalapenos as you feel like
Get some cream cheese and let it sit at room temperature to soften
Get some sliced bacon and cut each slice in half.
Wash the peppers. Halve them, and remove the seeds and some of the membrane. Stuff with cream cheese. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each pepper half and set onto your baking sheet/dish.
When you’ve loaded up your baking sheet/dish, bake them until the smell makes you drool. They’re divine eaten hot, and they’re not bad eaten at room temperature.
