Finally, Amanda from ahoustonfind is sharing her special “VALLEY SALSA” Here it is:
My ‘Valley’ Salsa
- Quarter four ripened tomatoes or a can of whole stewed tomatoe
- Two garlic heads or more to taste
- One onion
- Powdered chicken bouillon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
- Jalapeño chiles or chiles of choice
- Dried oregano, optional.
Place into the blender: the quartered tomatoes, the two peeled garlic heads, a tablespoon of the the chicken bouillon or if the chicken bouillon is in cubes then two cubes, 1/2 tsp of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and depending on how hot, start with half of a jalapeño chile, and a pinch of oregano, optional. Blend all ingredients.
Depending on personal taste, cut 1/8 of a small onion and place into an already heated pan with a dash of olive oil. Sauté the onion until, then poor the ingredients from the blender and heat while gently turning the ingredients with a spoon until they start to boil. Turn off the heat and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Salsa ready to serve.
