Hey peeps! I spoke the other day about how hard it is to get some good Mexican food in South Africa!
Finally, in the last year, El PASO brand has started becoming known here. One of our grocery stores does stock some of their items...but this is also not authentic! And honestly, it is disgustingly expensive!
Let’s face it...you can’t have Mexican night without some salsa! So I want to share with you my favorite homemade salsa recipe!
Scott Family Salsa
3 medium tomatoes diced
2 medium onions finely chopped
1 green pepper diced
1 3oz packet tomato paste
2 tbl vinegar
2 small green chilies diced
3 tbl lemon juice
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp cumin
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp black peper
2 tbl sugar
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
1. In an airtight container, mix all ingredients thoroughly. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
2. Remove from refrigerator, taste and season to taste. You can add spices to achieve desired taste or spiciness. Alternatively, return to refrigerator to chill for 2 hours or overnight. If a creamier texture is desired, place in blender until desired texture is achieved.
