Mmm... Salsa

Friday the farmer delivered the tomatoes.

Saturday, I blanched them. Peeled them. Chopped them. And mixed them.

With Peppers... Jalapeno, Serrano, Tomatillo, Red Chili, Green Chili, Yellow Chili, Salt, Vinegar, Cumin, Garlic, and lots of Sweet Yellow Onion.

I mixed it on the stove and gave it a taste.

So did Cycle Guy.

Then we added more... Peppers.

Gave it a try.

And added more peppers.

Then when his forehead started to shine and his eyes started to water, and his nose started to sniff, we knew the pepper additions were complete and he wasn't going to have to share it with anyone, because no one else will be able to stand the heat.

Except maybe his buddies at work. He says that's when they like it the best. The more sniffing and sweating the better.

How do you like your salsa? Hot? Medium? Mild?

Hey, I have an idea...

Leave me a comment and I'll have a random (gotta love that word!) drawing and send a jar of my homemade, home canned salsa to the random winner. Don't worry, in case you are a medium fan, I'll be making some of that too.

Looks good! If you eat a lot of that and sweat a lot, do you get bonus mileage? Shouldn't that count for SOMETHING?

You would think living in Arizona I would know how to make Salsa but alas, I really don't! I can make some really great guacamole though. :)

Jenny - I just realized you might not know who Bandanamom is - it's me, Lezlee.

I LOOOOVE me some homemade salsa! I like it hot. I can stand a pretty good amount of heat, but I don't like when it overpowers the other flavors!

I would LOVE to win a jar!

I like Medium salsa better than hot, but Steve likes it hot! The picture does your salsa justice! It looks really good!

yum! It looks really yummy. I like mine medium, but can eat the hot stuff, although it's not my favorite. Fun giveaway!

We are a SUPER MILD family. So if we win, we'll just have to try it to see if us "wimps" can handle it!!

Hey Jenny. Funny thing I made 3 quart jars of salsa today and then stumbbled onto your blog. Gotta love that salsa. We are a medium sort of bunch just so you know. Love you!

Mmm...like Mike always says..."It's all good."
Mild/Medium means eating volumes of salsa...hot is good for clearing out your sinuses...LOL.

Aawww, remember our salsa days together? So fun and so so yummy. I would love to be the winner (I'm a medium salsa kind of gal) but would really love the recipe if it's the same one we used. Good stuff.

Tanja said...

YUM! I could go for some extra spicy Salsa right now!

I want a jar!! But I am more of medium person. It sure seems to be salsa time. I have seen a couple blogs about people doing salsa. Makes me crave it every time!

Kaija said...

Mmm, that salsa looks delicious! I like this idea of having a giveaway with it.

Tipper said...

Looks so yummy! My husband likes it hot-but I'm more of a mild or medium fan.

That's like REAL Salsa...none of that Pico de Gillo stuff. We are definitely the 'hot' salsa family!
