Homemade Salsa

A repost from the Witch’s Kitchen blog, which will soon go away.

Salsa is a great, no-fat snack, and it even counts as a veggie serving if you make it yourself from fresh ingredients. I just whipped this up a few minutes ago and it’s blending for a few hours. We’ll have it with dinner tonight with turkey sloppy joes – lean ground turkey, diced red bell pepper and red onion, olive oil, chopped garlic, fresh herbs, ketchup – made in my new sandwich maker with corn tortillas.

3 large beefsteak tomatoes, cored and seeded
1 plum tomato, cored and seeded
1 small red onion
3 cloves garlic
juice from 1 lime
a few sprigs fresh cilantro, leaves only
chopped jalapenos, to taste
chopped chilis, to taste
sea salt or kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Use a food processor to chop the tomatoes; put them in a large bowl. Put the cilantro and garlic in the bowl of the food processor; chop as finely as possible, then add the onion and process until the onion is in small dice; add to tomatoes. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and allow to blend for several hours.

Now… who can tell me how to make tortilla chips using corn tortillas and not using any oil?
