Dude Food: Salsa
Americans often confuse pico de gallo with salsa. Those chopped chunky concoctions, while delicious are not a true salsa.
In Mexico you will get real salsa.
You need tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos (whole seeds and all)
Handful of cilantro
I however like it HOT and do two pepper for every tomato.
If your skillet is small roast in batches if you need salsa for a crowd.
Char the outside of all your vegetables. Brown to black puffy skin is ideal.
Add cilantro and salt and puree in food processor.
Dude, seriously it is that simple.
It costs little and you can make it for the fraction of what store or deli bought would cost.
If you like a brighter flavor squeeze in a lime.
You make this and you can be a hero at any party or gathering.
Chill the beer and cider and invite me over.
