While this recipe can be made any time of the year, I decided to dress up my roll-ups for the holidays! With clever stacking and a few “ornaments,” I made a roll-up Christmas tree! It’s fun to do, and the festive presentation will make this appetizer even more appealing to your holiday guests. Let me show you how quickly the roll-ups come together, plus my ideas for serving them.

Had some tomatoes from the Albuquerque grower’s market at their peak (and perhaps a tad beyond). Made the recipe as written except for an extra 3rd serrano (seeds, ribs, and all), 3 large and very fresh garlic cloves, and one chipotle en adobo. It’s cooling in the pan on the stove as I write, but I can already tell this is my new “signature” salsa. Hot diggity!

I had to come back and check your recipe. I was feeling lazy and ordered pico de gallo from my local Safeway. It’s usually pretty good and made fresh daily, but this time it was just flat. I finally realized that there was no acid or salt, just the cut up “veggies.” I thought maybe I’d only imagined the lime juice and salt in the recipe. ;))) Guess I’ll have to doctor this up and get back to making my own.

To make it, you’ll begin by dicing your plum tomatoes, jalapeños, and onion. Then, you’ll mince your garlic and chop or tear your cilantro leaves. Add all of these ingredients to a bowl and then add in the zest of a lime (my secret ingredient!) along with the juice of a fresh lime. Sprinkle with your salt and pepper and then gently stir to combine.
Let’s chat about dicing jalapeno!  I always remove the seeds and ribs from my jalapeno’s, if you like your pico on the spicy side just leave some of those jalapeno ribs on.  Be aware that jalapenos contain oils that can burn your skin or eyes.  I am able to handle them with my bare hands, however, if you have sensitive skin you may want to wear gloves.  Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands after dicing your jalapenos before you touch your face or anything else!

I know when I say tomatillo, some of you are already headed for the hills, but halt those steps for just a moment, and allow me to ease your nightshade veggie fears. Cause that’s all they are, ya know? A little nightshade vegetable that comes equipped with its very own little wrapper. So essentially, we’ve got ourselves a green little tomato in its very own little jacket, that goes by the name husk.

Looks gorgeous girl!! This looks like the perfect food group to me! I think I could live off salsa and chips! I love that you added roasted garlic, yum! I have never had a salsa in my life that didn’t have a kick of heat to it….everything down here is spicy and the one I love from Trader Joes I buy sometimes is also spicy, so I’m intrigued at how this tastes with no heat added! Now, I’m craving salsa.
Great dish!  I got rave reviews from my family when cooking this for a special holiday dinner. Simple!  I had 5 lbs instead of 4 lbs of robs so they needed about 10 minutes more cooking time. I used a meat thermometer and let the temp rise to 130 degrees F before removing to get to med rare. Be sure to not hit a bone when taking the temp!  One other thing, tent the meat with aluminum foil while resting the meat after the oven.  Serve on a hot plate (I just microwave mine).  :)
The salsa is made with fresh tomatoes and peppers, and it is seasoned perfectly with cilantro and lime juice. See the tips and variations for some add-in ideas and more. The extra step of pouring boiling water over the chopped onion and garlic may be new and perplexing to some home chefs. Don't skip this step! The boiling water helps to take the bite out of the raw onions and garlic. You'll be left with their delicious flavor, while the process removes any harshness.

We just simply cannot get enough Salsa and Queso Recipes. If I could live on cheese dip…I would! Hello there! It’s Maryanne from The Little Epicurean. As the weather warms up, weekend party season begins. Today we’re sharing 10 salsa and queso recipes for all your appetizers needs. We’ve got traditional favorites like pico de gallo and modern twists like loaded cowboy queso dip. No matter what the celebration or gathering, you’ll find the perfect salsa or queso recipe here! Enjoy!
Chris Munn, it's so nice to meet someone with Peruvian connections! What a treat that your wife has introduced you to so many Peruvian favorites. I've found that Peruvians are very proud of their cuisine and every region has their own specialties. I'm glad you found this salsa recipe. It's simple to prepare and my favorite salsa. Thanks for coming by and leaving a meaningful comment.
karinagw, thank you for the glowing report! We also enjoy salsa with a little more texture. Next time you can add more peppers for extra spice. We have several friends who don't enjoy the flavor of cilantro, either. One says it tastes like dirt! So we have experimented with cilantro-less salsa and found a little lime rounds on the flavors. Thanks again for your feedback. Have a great week.
I really believe that salsa is best when only a few key ingredients are involved. While there are so many recipes for this dip, literally millions and some with dozens of ingredients, I still believe in my mantra: simple is always best. This recipe is the perfect accompaniment for quesadillas, fajitas, taquitos, or served beside some homemade guac. You name it!

Wow, good article. I am having a party this weekend and this will be perfect. Hey, wanted to let you know that there is another website called Wacai that you should post your article on. It has a lot of similar stuff on it. I know that you can link your website to it and it will give you a list of similar articles. It’s pretty useful, anyways thanks again!
Outside Mexico and Central America, the following salsas are common to each of the following regions; in Argentina and the Southern Cone, chimichurri sauce is common. Chimichurri is "a spicy vinegar-parsley sauce that is the salsa (and leading condiment) in Argentina and Uruguay, served with grilled meat. It is made of chopped fresh parsley and onion, seasoned with garlic, oregano, salt, cayenne chilies and black pepper and bound with oil and vinegar."[3] In Costa Rica, dishes are prepared with salsa Lizano, a thin, smooth, light brown sauce. In Cuba and the Caribbean, a typical salsa is mojo. Unlike the tomato-based salsas, mojo typically consists of olive oil, garlic, and citrus juice, and is used both to marinate meats and as a dipping sauce. In Peru, a traditional salsa is peri peri or piri piri sauce: "The national condiment of Peru, peri-peri sauce is made in medium to hot levels of spiciness—the more chili, or the hotter variety of chile used, the hotter the sauce. Original peri-peri uses the African bird’s eye chili (the Swahili word for the chili is peri-peri). Milder sauces may use only cayenne and serrano chilies. To a base of vinegar and oil, garlic and lemon juice are added, plus other seasonings, which often include paprika or tomato paste for flavor and color, onions and herb—each company has its own recipe. It is also used as a cooking sauce."[4]

Made the recipe as written except for an extra 3rd serrano (seeds, ribs, and all), 3 large and very fresh garlic cloves, and one chipotle en adobo.

Devein jalapenos. The ribs and seeds carry the most heat in peppers, so we are going to remove them but you can always add in some seeds later.  To seed and devein your jalapeno(s), cut the stem off then cut the jalapeño in half lengthwise.  Scoop out the seeds with a spoon or pairing knife.  If there is still white rib remaining in some places, then slice it out.
To make it, you’ll begin by dicing your plum tomatoes, jalapeños, and onion. Then, you’ll mince your garlic and chop or tear your cilantro leaves. Add all of these ingredients to a bowl and then add in the zest of a lime (my secret ingredient!) along with the juice of a fresh lime. Sprinkle with your salt and pepper and then gently stir to combine.

This is a fantastic and super simple recipe! I doubled the recipe because I consider salsa to be a food group in and of itself and wanted to have some for a few days. I also doubled the jalapeño as I like more kick. I must disagree with one of the other reviewers in that I found the flavor to be better the second day and still better the day after that! So much so that the next time I make it, I will make it the day before I need it so the flavors can meld overnight.
What’s on your docket for the weekend? Hanging out with family? Watching a ball game? Do you have guests coming? Maybe you’re going to a potluck gathering of friends. Has a new family moved into your neighborhood who might need a special, fresh treat to welcome them? I got you covered on any or all of these fronts with this delicious seasonal salsa.
Incorpora la harina a la mantequilla derretida y cocina la mezcla por 1 o 2 minutos. Sostén el batidor entre el pulgar y el dedo índice y muévelo alrededor de la cacerola con un movimiento circular. Deja que el mango del batidor se mueva ligeramente en tu mano. Sigue batiendo aún después de haber incorporado la harina para eliminar el sabor harinoso. Mantén el fuego bajo y cocina la mezcla por 1 o 2 minutos después de la incorporación de la harina.[7]

Probablemente desde hace miles de años. Hay varias leyendas que cuentan que el primer queso se pudo crear por accidente, al transportarse leche en alforjas creadas con el estómago de animales como las ovejas. La leche se cuajó y de ahí surgió el queso. Otra teoría especula que la leche se pudo cuajar al rociar la leche con ácidos como el zumo de frutas.

Prepara una salsa de queso cremosa para realzar el sabor de tus comidas preferidas, desde platos principales como las pastas hasta acompañamientos como las papas fritas. Con esta receta sencilla y rápida, solo necesitarás unos cuantos ingredientes y un poco de tiempo.

This homemade salsa recipe is pretty basic.  There are lots of recipes out there and lots of great recipes.  Why this one is my trusty go to recipe that I have used most of my life, is the combination of being entirely delicious, but yet still so easy to make!  With the use of some fresh ingredients and some canned you are able to trick your mouth into thinking this recipe took 10 hours of hard labor peeling tomatoes to make, when really I was able to whip up a batch of the homemade salsa in as little as 10 minutes!
I came across this easy and tasty snack while searching online for healthy munchies for kids. Great for after school, it’s really quick to make and filling enough to hold the kids until dinner. To satisfy heftier appetites or to serve as a power lunch, cut each tortilla into fewer pieces or provide one per child. The recipe is easy to increase as needed. —Mary Haluch, Ludlow, Massachusetts
Hi, Sommer, I was pointed to your blog by Cory Kowalski. I immediately saved your detox soup recipe AND the salsa one. I love salsa and love making it, but I can’t eat as much as I’d like to because I have kidney disease (and tomatoes aren’t good for me). I am going to try making a salsa with an extra dose of tomatilos, substituting them for some of the tomatoes. I’ll let you know how it comes out. BTW, I can’t find a ‘follow’ button on your site — except pointing to Pinterest, which I know nothing about.

While some salsa fans do not consider jarred products to be real salsa cruda, their widespread availability and long shelf life have been credited with much of salsa's enormous popularity in states outside the southwest, especially in areas where salsa is not a traditional part of the cuisine. In 1992, the dollar value of salsa sales in the United States exceeded those of tomato ketchup.[5]

¿Como la elaboramos? Cortamos el queso en trozos (podemos utilizar diferentes tipos de queso, para hacer una salsa más especial y propia), lo ponemos sobre el bol o taza y le echamos una cucharada de leche (se utiliza para que no se solidifique el queso), un poco más si el queso que utilizamos es más seco. Lo metemos al microondas hasta que derrita y voilà cést fini, listo para servir.
This recipe is a great starting point to develop your own Mexican salsa recipe. Adjust any or all of the ingredients to suit your tastes. Although this recipe calls for charring the chiles, you can also make it without charring them. Add more chiles for a spicier sauce or reduce the number for a milder version. Substituting jalapeño chiles for the serrano chiles will make a milder salsa too.
I grew up in New Mexico and Arizona, so I have a life-long connection to Mexican food. It's my favorite food. I like it spicy. It's the first kind of food I ever learned to cook. When we were very young (still in elementary school), my sister Nelda and I could prepare an entire Mexican meal of enchiladas and taquitos. It was kind of our sister specialty. Nelda made taquitos the last time we were together--a delicious comfort food from the past.

This is pico de gallo, also called salsa fresca. This is not what most people in the States think of when they think of salsa. The salsa you find at Mexican restaurants and the like is usually a salsa roja, which has very similar ingredients, but is usually pureed and is often made by first roasting the vegetables both to bring out their flavors as well as to get them to the desired texture. Many people make it with canned tomatoes as well, which are also cooked, resulting in the kind of "mouth feel" one expects with this kind of a salsa. In short, the title of this recipe "Mexican Salsa" is very misleading and should really be changed, possibly to "Salsa Fresca" if not just calling it pico de gallo.
Congrats and Semper Fi!!! From a Marine Daughter, Mother, and Mother-in-law… You Really do have reason to be proud as I can tell you are. I had my Son’s Boot Camp Graduation party instead of a High School Graduation party (my son graduated early to go in on Memorial Day 7 years ago. If you would like to touch base on anything. Marine Mom to Marine Mom feel free. Tell your son Ooh Rah!! from my family and myself. Oh and I love Mexican food too. The Pico was wonderful and will be making again. Congrats again and welcome the the Marine Family!!
Douglas, I was just wondering about using the iron skillet or comal and the tomatoes. I tried a different recipe the other day and used my iron skillet to toast the ancho chilies, tomatoes and serrano peppers it called for. After blending all the ingredients, I used the same skillet to heat and cook the finished sauce. I only thought about it after the fact and wondered if the acidic sauce changed in flavor by using the iron skillet. I am sure our grandmothers used their iron for everything and never worried about the acid in them, so I am sure this question is moot, but I still want to know. I am not a very good cook, even though I try, and last weeks sauce did not turn out very tasty. I am going to give this one a try and hope it comes out better. Thank you for posting this.

Ha, guys, I had no idea how much you all love your pico!  Also, I had no idea that this classic of all classic recipes was somehow missing here on the blog.  Bah, this absolutely will not do for the blogger whose all-time favorite two foods are chips and salsa (<– with pico de gallo, of course, to thank as the original salsa that started it all).  I’d say it’s high time to remedy this.

Fresh tomatoes: Roma or plum tomatoes are my favorites in pico de gallo, since they contain far fewer seeds than most other tomatoes.  But really, any large tomatoes (just scoop out the excess pulp) or small tomatoes (cherry and grape tomatoes work great) will do.  The freshness of your tomatoes is paramount in this recipe, so try to avoid some of those bland or watery tomatoes that fill stores during the wintertime.  And definitely avoid using canned tomatoes.


I’m so glad I found this recipe… again! I made this last Christmas to satisfy the munchies between our typical heavy breakfast and heavy dinner. Everyone gobbled it up so fast, no one was hungry at dinner time. This has been at the top of the request list for our family Christmas this year, and because it’s so addictive, everyone voted to have this queso AS the evening meal, instead of the appetizer. That’s saying a lot considering we usually go all out with our Christmas dinners. This will be in our extended family meal rotation from now on. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

As I mentioned above, I picked up the Missions Organics Tortilla Chips and all of the ingredients for my homemade salsa at my local Kroger in Charlottesville. You can use the store locator to find the chips in your area, and be sure to check out the additional recipe ideas as well. They’ve got Tequila Guacamole and Cheese Nachos as well as Chimichurri Steak Tacos! Oh my YUM.
A few weeks ago on Instagram, I shared my list of Mexican recipes that I was planning to make this year for Cinco De Mayo, and asked if you all had any additional requests.  And amongst the hundreds of messages I received (which made my day, so happy to be in the company of Insta friends who love Mexican food as much as I do!), I noticed that there were three words that came up again and again…and again and again and again.  Yes.

LOL! I know, no spice here. And you must think I’ve lost it because you know how much I love spice. BUT, I was trying to make this a very family/kid friendly salsa because my whole family loves chips and salsa so much but I’m the only spice fiend. The 4 year old likes some spice, but the others are all spice wussies! It still has loads of flavor, especially with the roasted garlic in there. I love it, although truth be told I often dump my favorite hot sauce over the top. HAHAHA!


TASTE AND ADJUST THE SALT & HEAT: Give it a taste test and add some more salt if it needs it. If it doesn't have enough heat, add some red pepper flakes. Start with 1/2 teaspoon and go from there. If I'm making salsa for a party, I usually divide the salsa in half and add some heat to some of it. That way I can serve a mild and hot version of the salsa.
“From Rick Bayless, 'Authentic Mexican.' If you're looking for an authentic Mexican salsa, this is it! It's so simple too! I only use one onion and two jalapenos when I make it, but I decided I'd post the original recipe instead of altering it. The way I make it produces a medium heat. I'd imagine making it his way would produce a hot salsa. I really like it with the lime juice. I haven't made it with the vinegar yet.”
