Laura, as you might have noticed is a great cook. Aside from my mother, there is no other person that influenced me greater in the kitchen. She helped me learn how to cook. I don't mean she taught me how to look at a recipe, I mean she taught me how to be a common sense cook.
She has a few recipes that are truly perfection, her beans of course, but her salsa, well, it is heaven. I have never tasted salsa quite so good. And, when you see how simple it is you are going to be astounded that you to can blend such a good creation.
It tastes like it was made from home-grown ingredients. Truly amazing. If you only make one thing from this blog, make this.
Laura thinks the hotter the salsa, the better it tastes. We are having to constantly reign in her jalapeno use. I have to agree, this salsa, the hotter the better! It still tastes wonderful when made mild, so do not let that stop you.
This recipe makes a ton of salsa. You can cut in half if you are just making it for your family.
