How to make it

  • I like my salsa to be a little different than the salsas that I have at my favorite local restaurants, so it's chunky and not thin. Not to say that I don't like theirs, but I like the change of pace, and I sometimes just flat out make a meal out of mine.
  • Also, it goes without saying that if you don't want heat, exclude any number of the hot peppers. I don't think they're that bad, and they add a lot of color. And remember, you may want to use gloves with the peppers, especially the habanero. Guys, this especially applies to you. I know we all have our stories.
  • First, start with the tomatoes. I dump the diced tomatoes in a collander to strain off the excess juice. I then dice the tomatoes some more, as they're never diced fine enough for my liking. I then strain them a second time before adding them to the mixing bowl. Don't worry, your salsa's texture will still have enough juice when you're done.
  • Then just add all of the rest of the veggies as you dice them. It's a lot of fun making a big pile of such mouth watering fresh ingredients ---and it's colorful too!
  • After all of the veggies have been added to your mixing bowl, give them their first good stir until they're sufficiently mixed.
  • Add all of the other ingredients, and fold that baby until you feel your forearms start to burn!
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and throw it in the fridge to chill it for at least an hour before serving, to let it settle down and mingle with itself.
  • Serve and be happy with life.
