No-Peel Salsa Recipe from Homegrown Tomatoes

No Peel Salsa Recipe

Can you leave skin on tomatoes when making salsa?
You sure can! This is the easiest way to make salsa.

No-Peel Tomato Salsa Recipe:

Hot Peppers
• Garlic Cloves, diced
Onion, chopped
• Cilantro, chopped
• Lime, juiced
• Salt, Pepper, tiny bit of sugar to taste
• Dash of Cumin (optional)

Just core, slice in half and process the tomatoes in a food processor until smooth. We like to cook it down to condense and make the tomato mixture thicker for a thicker heartier salsa, but you could also use it fresh at this point if desired. To cook it down, pour tomato mixture into stock pot and boil down for 30 minutes or so to condense. 

NO need to peel those tomatoes!

Can you leave skin on tomatoes when making sauce? Process them in a food processor first.
Once condensed and a little thicker, let the tomato mixture cool down. Then, add any chopped hot peppers of your choosing (or even super hot peppers), a bunch of chopped cilantro, and freshly diced onions (soak strong onions first in cold water for 20 minutes and drain them to sweeten, you can also use green onions which have lots of flavor and add color to your salsa). We also like to add lots of freshly chopped garlic to the salsa to add heat and loads of flavor. Last, squirt in juice from a lime to give it a burst of freshness, and add salt and pepper to taste. We also like to add cumin and a little hint of sugar to our salsa, but it's up to you!

Enjoy with chips or on tacos! We will store this salsa in the fridge in a glass dish or jars with lids.
