My nephew and his partner (girlfriend?) were here for a few days from the land of salsa, well, one of the lands anyway, California, where they live. They were over for dinner and he went crazy for my salsa. I was flattered since he’s pretty discerning about food but also confused since he worked as a waiter in my restaurant and it’s essentially the same salsa we had there. More or less. Of course that was a long time ago and he probably had other things on his mind, if memory serves.
It’s really easy. Seriously, if you ever want to impress people. A jar of salsa. I may be crazy but I think this particular brand is the best (for this anyway). Then add about a quarter cup of each of these: cilantro, tomatoes, these particular jalapeños, green onions and in this case I added fresh pineapple all chopped but you can add peaches, mangoes, green peppers, radishes, an envelope of turkey gravy, ok, not that, but nearly anything.
You can also add a tablespoon or two of chili powder although this must be Spice House chili powder. There is no other.
And here’s another tip. Put this just-plain-jarred salsa and sour cream on a salad.
