Hatch, tomato & herb salsa

Salsa lovers all have personal preferences.

Some like chunks of tomatoes and onions, others a puree. Some like it hot and some like it mild.

I’m somewhere in between. I’d like a little spice, but not too much. Enough texture to taste each bit, but not chunky.

So we’ll just call this my personal goldilocks of salsas. You may like it a little hotter, a little chunkier or with a  specific pepper. Feel free to mix it up.

My peppers of choice are hatch chiles (two cans of the diced green beauties) and half a Serrano pepper. And yes, I left the seeds in the pepper. I used all fresh tomatoes (fans of restaurant-style salsas would probably prefer to do have fresh and half canned). And for herbs I used cilantro and parsley.

Other additions were limes (plus their zest to really add some zing), a white onion, s&p and green onions. I mixed it all up in my Vitamix by pulsing.

I hope you enjoy (and also please share your favorite salsa type).

One thought on “Hatch, tomato & herb salsa

  1. Try roasting the tomatoes, onion and pepper in the oven (or frying pan) with a little oil for about 20 to 30 minutes
    @ 350. Just keep checking for desired doneness. Add the roasted veggies to the rest of the ingredients and blend to desired consistency.
