I love chips and salsa on a lazy weekend, and it’s also one of my favorite recipes to make from scratch. I used a “Southwest Salsa” recipe as a basis to get started and experiment with. The southwest salsa came out spicy, and while I like spicy foods, I prefer to have a milder and sweeter salsa. After experimenting with a few different variations of the salsa, I finally found the right flavor for my family and our guests. Hope you salsa lovers enjoy this simple and convenient recipe!
- Batch of vine tomatoes (Usually about 4-6 tomatoes)
- 1-2 mangos
- 1/4 cup of red onion (Add more if you like red onion)
- 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
- Small cam of chipotles in A0dobo Sauce
- Small can of diced mild green chilis
- 2 limes
- Salt (if needed)
Cut up tomatoes, mangos, red onion and cilantro and add to blender. One mango will suffice, but if you like a sweeter salsa, use two mangos. Drain the liquid from the adobe and green chilies and add to the blender. (For a spicier taste, use the whole can of adobe chili. For a less spicy flavor, use 1/2 can or less.) Add the two limes and then pulse the ingredients.
This amount can last a week, so eat it with tortilla chips, add to chicken, nachos, eggs – any dish that goes well with salsa.
