World’s Best Salsa Recipe

Not one for hyperbole, I truly think this is the best salsa recipe out there.

Whenever we travel down to Austin to visit Ditty’s family, they have this addicting homemade salsa that puts the Tostitos and other store-bought varieties to shame. For some reason we never actually put that recipe into action until recently. So although my brother-in-law told us to bottle this up and sell it, I’m going to share the World’s Best Salsa Recipe with YOU! (Thank you to Trixie for the recipe!)

2 cans (14oz each) peeled or diced tomatoes (If peeled, then dice and use all the liquid)
1 can (4 oz) green chiles
3-4 spring onions (scallions)
2 cloves garlic minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro chopped
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/3 can jalapenos or fresh chiles (if you want spicy. If not, leave out)

1. Dice the scallions, mince the garlic, and chop the cilantro.

2. Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse for a few seconds at a time until all ingredients are mixed together. You should have a darker red color with flecks of green (which is the cilantro and scallions)

4. Store in a container and refrigerate. Makes about 4 cups worth of salsa. Keeps for 2-3 weeks. You may also make batches and freeze some.

Note: This is a bit “runnier” than a standard Tostitos salsa, but then again, it’s 100x better and is Paleo approved. Above is an example of using it on breakfast tacos: corn tortillas, bacon, fried egg, and World’s Best Salsa. Yum.
