Don jose's salsa

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can (large) tomatoes; drained (you may use fresh, but suprisingly it works better with canned)
1 \N Onion; minced
1 bunch Green onions; minced
1 \N Garlic cloves; minced (up to 2)
¼ bunch Cilantro (guessing here); minced
\N \N Jalapeno or serrano chiles; to taste (I'm a light-weight and use one serrano, hot! The rest of my family likes 2)
1 dash Vinegar

This was given to me by the manager of our local Don Jose's Restaurant on the occasion of one of my daughter's birthdays. This is her absolute favorite salsa (mine too!) We have enjoyed their food 12 years now and their salsa has never missed!

The recipe is loose, but you'll manage just fine by taste.

Don Jose's chefs hand-chop everything, but I manage just fine with my Braun hand-held emulsifier -- even with the garlic. Leave some tomatoes a bit chunky. My suggestion would be to use an electric chopper but do the garlic by hand to avoid a "metallic" taste. The key is in the amount of onions you use --lots!

A most excellent recipe. Posted to TNT - Prodigy's Recipe Exchange Newsletter by Sherilyn Schamber <sherschm@...> on Aug 13, 1997
