Salsa

Salsa

2 (28 oz.) cans whole , peeled tomatoes with liquid (you may use fresh tomatoes in season - chop small, off season use canned as they taste better than hothouse tomatoes)
2 green peppers - chopped small
Jalapenos - chopped small - to taste - optional
1 large red onion - diced small
1 bunch green onions - chopped (green and white part included)
Fresh parsley - chopped fine - to taste
Hot sauce - to taste (if needed if you don't use jalapenos)
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Drain tomato liquid into bowl (if using canned). Chop tomatoes small and add to bowl. Add other ingredients to bowl. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Serve with tortilla chips.

Good recipe, but I would definitely substitute cilantro for the parsley...gotta have fresh cilantro in salsa. And I always add a clove of crushed garlic and some lime juice. Having said that, it is always a matter of individual taste, so if this tastes fine to you, then go with it!

Agree with MexicoKaren, to me a salsa needs cilantro, lime juice, garlic and I also add a pinch or two of freshy roasted and ground cumin. It just gives a depth of flavor that cannot be explained.

Cilantro seems to be one of those things that you either love or hate. I just happen to love it! And I also have to use lime juice in my salsa. Another thing that I like to add is any stone fruit in season. It adds a subtle sweetness and freshness to the salsa.

Tortilla with salsa sauce is my favorite snack. Thank you so much! I'll try to make my own salsa.

Looks good! My husband HATES cilantro, I love it, so I usually just mix it with my lettuce when I want it on a taco. Sometimes I'll add a can of diced green chilies, it also helps add a depth of flavor.

I tend to agree with your husband. The taste of Cilantro reminds me of... well... a not very nice odor. Just as the smell of boiling cabbage turns many people off, Cilantro has the same effect for me. But then again, I like kimchi and raw oysters, so go figure!

cilantro smells and tastes like tar to me and my family can't stand it either.
