Make this fresh salsa recipe with only 4 ingredients so you will have a delicious, simple, spicy and cheap dip ready within 10 minutes.
I got this authentic salsa recipe from my Mexican sister in law… who pretends she doesn’t cook. Which could mean she is really modest, but I guess what she really wanted to stress is the simplicity of her recipe:
- throw all ingredients in boiling water
- chitchat for 10 minutes on the phone (or do anything else you prefer to do… you get it: easily prepared whilst the rest of your meal is cooking)
- mash all ingredients
- add salt and … voilà, ready!
Best of all: this recipe is pure paleo and beats the expensive salsa pots you would buy in the shop, without any sugar nor any other unwanted ingredients.
Her original recipe included 1 big tomato and 15 birds eye chilies… very, very spicy for my taste! Hence I suggest the following quantities and for some extra freshness and taste: add some freshly cut coriander leaves in the still warm salsa and serve immediately.
Fresh salsa recipe ingredients
- 2 little tomatoes (together 140 gr, about 5 ounces)
- 1 long red chili
- 5 red little birds eye chilies
- to taste (1/2 teaspoon) salt
How to make this simple salsa recipe
- The trick is to boil the tomatoes and chilies in water, like if you were boiling an egg. You boil for about 10 minutes, or until you feel with a fork that the tomatoes are soft.
- Discard the boiling water
- Remove the peal from the tomatoes and cut the flesh of the tomatoes in fine cubes
- Cut the chilies fine.
- Add salt and mash all with a fork together
- Serve immediately or put your homemade salsa in a little jar and store in your fridge.
