Ingredients for Homemade Salsa Recipe:
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1 tsp of Thyme
1 tsp of Oregano
1 tsp of Garlic Powder
Salt to taste
How to make:
1. First, we need to blanch tomatoes. Slightly slit the bottom of the tomatoes like this. It makes it easier to peel off the skin. Cook 2 tomato to the boiling water for about 3-4 min. Then remove them from the water and allow it to get cool.
2. Once it came to the room temperature, peel off the tomato skin. Due to the slit we made earlier, we could easily peel off the skin like peeling off bananas. Dice 1 tomato, 1/4 onion, and jalapeno pepper(remove the seeds, if you want it mild hot).
3. We need thyme, oregano leaves, and garlic powder. It is well and good if you have them fresh, otherwise also no issues.
4. Puree the tomatoes by grinding the peeled of tomatoes in the mixer / blender.
5. With 1/4 to 1/2 cup water, add diced tomatoes and onion. Cook them till it becomes soft and tender.
