My mom was a Queen when it came to making salsa, then I moved to Mexico and started eating whole jalapeños, and suddenly my favorite childhood salsa was no longer spicy enough, so I had to start making my own. I learned early on that most people to want as much heat as I do, so I try my best to find balance when it comes to spice. You can control your spice level by doing two things: use only Serrano chiles, as the always have a consistent level of spice, or use jalapeños and remove the veins and seeds; cut them in thirds and add one piece at a time, tasting in between until desired spice level has been reached.
This salsa is excellent as an addition to your morning eggs, can upgrade a basic sandwich, and will add some flavor to your protein at dinner. You can put this on everything! Make it on a Sunday and enjoy it all week.
Want to know that way to someone's heart? It's homemade salsa. And this recipe recipe for a Roasted Tomatillo Salsa is a great way to get something homemade on the table quickly.
