For those who like it HOT
« on: May 18, 2017, 09:03:42 AM »
I work with several Hispanic guys and they always have some form of homemade salsas to apply to their lunch items.  Over the years I've learned that their salsa is about like our BBQ sauces. Ask 4 people how to make it and get 4 very different answers. One thing that seems to be a common denominator is the peppers are the star of the show.

Also, I like their packaging. They put the sauce in plastic drinking water bottles. Portable and the opening works perfect to pour a little on food but big enough to let small chunks through.  Then just toss the bottle when empty.

Anyways, I asked the recipe for one I tried and really liked. Here it is.

5-6 jalapeņos grilled indirect for thirty minutes then turn in the flame a little, 1 large tomato wrapped in foil and grilled indirect, remove from grill, blend whole, add a pinch of salt.

That's it!  I made this last night with a chunk of mulberry in the fire and cooked along side chicken legs. For only three ingredients it was flavor packed due to the smoke and char gained from the grill. I did put a touch of lime juice in it.  I figured I would share since we all have the grills fired up frequently and this is an easy add on.  You end up with something that looks like this. Doesn't necessarily look great but it's a great easy sauce if you like spicy.

Is the whole jalapeno, seeds and all, blended with the tomatoe?

I cut the stems off before going in the blender but left seeds in. You could certainly remove the insides to lessen heat.

Salsa is like chilli.  Tons of variations.  Around this area there are many to choose from and they are all awesome.

Made another batch. You can be a mad scientist with smoked and grilled salsa.

That's a great idea with the water bottle, Sean. Is that batch different from the first?
I'm about to run out and get a friggin pork butt or chicken or some shit.

It's a little different. I removed the insides from the jalapeņos after I pulled them off the grill to temper the heat. Also I charred these slightly more for more color in the sauce.  I cooked them with skirt steak and chicken.  It was a big hit as a sauce for fajitas.

I read this before cooking dinner. Looked in the kitchen: jalapenos - check. Tomatoes - check. Followed your recipe and blended up a nice jar of salsa. Thanks.

I did a double take. I thought you quoted one of my pictures, then I looked closer and realized what's happening.
