Classic southwestern salsa

Yield: 3 Cups

Measure Ingredient
4.00 Ripe tomatoes -- cored
10.00 Fresh jalapenos
½ teaspoon Garlic -- chopped
Salt -- to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
To taste

This classic salsa starts with fresh tomatoes, but canned tomatoes can be substituted. Tasting as you go is a must, since the heat of jalapenos varies.

With a paring knife, cut a small "X" in the bottom of each tomato.

Place tomatoes in a large pot of boiling water 10 seconds to loosen skins. Peel and place tomatoes in blender container. Add unseeded jalapenos, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend to desired consistency.

Makes about 3 cups.
