Yesterday we were having fast food for dinner. For us that usually means Fajita’s with Old El Paso’s smokey fajita spice. It’s soo good! Try it if you haven’t already done so.
I was really silly yesterday and had forgotten to buy salsa, and fajitas without salsa is a total no-no. I couldn’t find any salsa in the small shops around my office either, but luckily I remembered seeing this recipe. I had to make a few changes since I didn’t have all the ingredients at home, and I improvised a little with the measurements, but ut turned out really well! So much better than ready-made salsa! Christopher liked it so much he drowned his fajitas in it.
Salsa, quite a big batch
1 can of plum tomatoes (400 ml)
ca 200 ml chopped tomatoes with chili (if you can’t find this, instead use regular chopped tomatoes and a few chopped pickled jalapenos)
1/2 red chilli (seeds and all)
1 tsp salt
1 pinch of sugar
2 tsp dried coriander leaves
1 grated clove of garlic
Pour everything into a tall bowl and mix with a handheld mixer. Season with salt for taste. Don’t mix too long as it should have bits, it is after all salsa we’re making, not sauce.
This salsa tasted great, but the consistency was a bit too smooth for my liking. Next time I will add 1-2 freshly chopped tomatoes, and will therefore play around with the seasoning. Feel free to experiment.
I haven’t got a picture, but you don’t need one. We all know what salsa looks like. 😉
