The Best Dang Salsa. Period.
“This is it. This is the salsa recipe that ruined everything. My life, you see, used to be so simple, where salsa was concerned.
I used to buy a big jug of salsa from Sam’s Club every month or two, and it would last a long time in the ‘fridge. Occasionally, we’d pour a bit into a bowl and dip tortilla chips in it. It was tasty, but nothing earth-shaking. *yawn*
I tried some of my sister-in-law Paula’s homemade salsa one day, and it was so delicious that I begged her for the recipe. And it ruined everything. Now I can’t buy salsa any longer. You realize, of course, how much simpler my life would be if I could just go to the store and buy salsa, like a normal person, when we run out. But no. That wouldn’t do, now that my family has tasted this salsa. It’s so good and so fresh and so full of flavors, and it is just addicting. Once you’ve tasted it, nothing else will do.”
Oh, holy cow. This salsa. THIS. SALSA. Hot dang it’s awesome! This is the perfect way to use up a surplus of tomatoes from your garden. And if you don’t have garden tomatoes, don’t fret. You can use regular ol’ store-bought tomatoes and still end up with fabulous salsa. Now just a note, Amy over at Vomiting Chicken wrote this recipe to yield eight quarts for canning, but if you just want some killer salsa for a party, just scale back the quantities in the recipe. Me, I go for the big shebang (doubled, even) because just like Amy’s family, I want this stuff on hand at all times.
