Spicy Salsa

June 2, 2011

The perfect dip to spice things up a bit (either intentionally or unintentionally!). If you like your food hot then this is the perfect dip for you. You can adjust the temperature by changing the amount of jalapeno and tabasco you put in.

Serve with corn chips, fresh vegetable sticks and a side of sour cream.

3 large, ripe plum tomaotes, seeded and diced

3 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

8 green onions, finely chopped

4 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded

1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

3 tablespoons tabasco (or other hot sauce)

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper to taste

In a blender or food processor, pulse the tomatoes, green onions, garlic, jalapeno peppers, and coriander to desired consistency. Transfer to a bowl, and mix in the lime juice, hot pepper sauce, pepper and salt.  Refrigerate for 45 minutes before serving.
