While grocery shopping tonight I got the bright idea to try to make some salsa. I've never done it before and had no idea how to go about such a thing. Obviously I know the basic ingredients, but had no idea in what ratios they should be combined. Here's how it went: I bought 4 jalapenos, one poblano, a small bag (about 20) of them tiny tomaters, an onion, and some cilantro. I coated the peppers and tomatoes in olive oil and roasted them in the oven for a while. I chopped up a little bit of the onion (I actually hate onion, but seem to tolerate it in salsa), some garlic, and some cilantro and sauteed them in some olive oil while the other stuff roasted. I then put it all in a blender (I don't like chunky salsa) along with some sea salt, celery salt, black pepper, and a little olive oil and vinegar. I blended it until smooth. The results were: It was greener than I had hoped. Next time I'll need more tomatoes. I'm not one that prides myself on how much heat I can handle, but I like a pretty fair amount of it. The first bite proved to be a bit hotter than I would have liked, but was not inedible. My wife, however, took one bite and you would have though she put a habanero in her mouth. She turned red, started coughing, and actually ended up throwing up. I started eating some and only made it through 8-10 chips worth before I had to give it up. I learned a few lessons for next time: More tomatoes, fewer peppers. I need something else to give it a bit more flavor, but I'm not sure what. Take more than one bite before letting the wife try it. If anybody has some tips, I'd love to hear them.
