Hot or Mild Salsa Recipe


This salsa can be used to dress your favorite Mexican Pressure Cooker recipe. This salsa is not watery or runny I’ll show you how to do it!

It’s very easy to make and can be prepared up to a day ahead.    The raw red onion adds to the “heat” of the spice, so don’t leave it out (white or yellow onions are more sulfurus than red).

If you’re not up to slicing tomatoes, you can quarter them and pulse them in a mini-chopper to get a nice mix. To avoid liquefying the tomatoes, first pulse the onions and when they’re fairly small then pulse the tomato quarters.

Adjust the heat of this salsa to preference.  Use two whole jalapenos (including their seeds) to make it extra-hot.  Just one jalapeno (including the seeds) for mild.  If this is for kids, you you would like even less heat, remove and discard the seeds.
