If you've ever had the chance to enjoy Dorothy's Salsa and wished you had the recipe here it is. Thank you, Dorothy, for being so willing to share it with everyone.You can make it hotter by adding more jalapeno peppers and you can also add some hot sauce. Another variation is to add some canned black beans or corn . . or both. I'm giving you the half recipe which is just about perfect for a party.
- 4 cups diced fresh roma tomatoes (one package at Costco)
- 2 cups diced green pepper
- 1 cup of finely chopped white onion
- 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
- 2 jalapeno peppers finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup vinegar
- 1 can of tomato paste
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt or more to taste
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- a small handful of fresh chopped cilantro. (according to your taste)
That's it. It takes a bit of time to chop it all up but then it keeps in the refrigerator for a week at least. If you can't use it all up, just freeze it in small bags and use it in recipes.
On the weekend, we often grill quesadillas and served this salsa and some guacamole with it.
A perfect summer evening casual dinner idea.
