Salsa

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 bunch cilantro (if by chance they’re really small you can put two bunches)
  • 5 green onions
  • 3-5 Jalapeno peppers seeded
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans petite diced chilies (I chose the one not in tomato juice because by the end the salsa has plenty of liquid)
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp onion salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lime juice

Chips

  • Oil for deep frying
  • Seasonal salt (or just regular salt)
  • White corn tortillas

Instructions:

  1. Gather all ingredients and wash all the vegetables
  2. Either in a food processor, by hand, or a chopper like the one from pampered chef, chop the peppers, onions, cilantro, and tomatoes. *cut jalapenos last then automatically throw away seeds, put any utensil that you used in the sink and wash your hands. With any pepper or onion you should do this but jalapenos are the worse if by chance you touch your face so better safe than sorry.
  3. After those are chopped place them in a large bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Stir, stir, and stir. Make sure everything is really mixed in. Do this by hand, or if you like it really smooth keep it in the blender or food processor.
  5. Let sit overnight in the fridge or for a few hours. The flavor really settles in after a day or two but it’s so hard to wait!
  6. For the chips heat up the oil in a deep fryer with a basket.
  7. Cut the tortillas in triangles.
  8. Place tortillas in fryer and cook for about 4 minutes or till golden brown.
  9. Place on a rack with paper towels underneath and sprinkle with seasonal or salt to your liking.
  10. Let cool and dip in salsa!

Can Change up salsa by adding different peppers like habanero, more jalapenos, any bell pepper, or whatever produce you like, mangos are also pretty good in salsa.
