  • 1 garlic clove peeled
  • 1/2 onion quartered
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add jalapeños, tomato and garlic to a pot over medium heat with about 2 cups of water.  Boil for 10-15 minutes.
  • Peel skin off of tomato. (It will peel easily after it has been boiled)
  • Add the boiled jalapeños, tomato, garlic, onion and cilantro to a blender or food chopper. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pulse till salsa is chunky. Remove from blender and pour into a jar or a bowl.
  • Add 2-4 tablespoons of water. Stir all together. Done.  Enjoy!
    Great with tacos, empanadas, tostadas, meats, seafood, eggs, tortilla chips, plantain chips and so much more.
