Boyfriend has a new hobby: salsa making! He has been fine-tuning this recipe for a couple of months now, so we've been eating a lot of salsa!
He's ready for me to share the following version with you, along with the disclaimer that there's no way that you can make it exactly the same way twice, considering the variation of heat and flavor in pasilla and habanero peppers. So consider this a starting point from which to do your own tweaking!
- Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan to until medium-hot. Add 1/2 onion, 1/2 garlic, and chopped peppers. Lightly saute until soft, but not browned. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
- Put all other ingredients in food processor, pulse until consistency you like.
- Add cooked ingredients and pulse thoroughly mixed, and consistency you like.
- Salt and pepper to taste. Tweak cayenne pepper if needed. Make sure to taste test - if too spicy, you may need to add more tomatoes.
