I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile Chicken Chimichangas!
Add everything but the oil to a large bowl and toss.
- Preheat large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the oil and allow to get hot.
- Meanwhile, use an immersion blender or, if you don’t have one, you can use an upright blender and blitz everything until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Pour into the hot oil and allow to fry for 3-5 minutes before reducing the heat to low, covering and cooking for an additional 10 minutes. Taste and season accordingly.
- Pour into sterilized mason jars if you’d like to process them for your pantry or you can store it in your fridge for up to 3 weeks.
