Nellie & Phoeb's In the Kitchen: Killer Salsa

Just Like Chuy's Salsa

Chuy's salsa is our absolute favorite! It's so fresh & tangy, we can eat it by the spoonful! But, sometimes it's too spicy for me. I love being able to make a similar version at home & decrease the heat. I originally found this recipe here, but have adapted it.

Killer Chuy's Knockoff Salsa Recipe

8- roma tomatoes, chopped
2- serrano peppers, seeded & chopped fine (add more if you want to kick up the heat)
1- medium white onion
2- limes, juice only
1- handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1- tablespoon garlic salt
Place peppers, onion, lime juice, cilantro & garlic salt in a food processor, process until fine.  Place mixture into a blender, add tomatoes, blend until tomatoes are small pieces (not large chunks).  Serve immediately with chips or your favorite Tex-Mex!
Use fresh limes & cilantro. 
You can store it in the refrigerator, but it tastes best immediately after making it. Serrano peppers are tiny & spicy, don't over do it!
