Super Bowl Salsa



OK. I'm going to provide you one of my secret recipes. Don't spread it around. This salsa makes others look sad. It's not blazing hot, but it is delicious!


Food Processor

Dried chili peppers: 1 each Ancho, Pasilla and Mulato (Chosen to be mild, if you want hotter salsa, pick hotter peppers)

5 large tomatillos

1 Jalapeno pepper, cored without seeds

3 cloves garlic

1 medium-sized white onion

1 teaspoon salt



1 - with the dried Ancho, Pasilla and Mulato peppers, remove the stems and seeds, and boil for twenty minutes in a pint of water.

2 - once boiled, put the now hydrated peppers into your food processor with 1/2 cup of the water they were boiled in

3 - run food processor and make sure the peppers are well shredded, set aside

4 - heat oven to 450 (232.2 C)

5 - cover a cookie sheet with foil

6 - cut tomatillos in half and put on foil, cut side down. Also place Jalapeno and garlic on foil

7 - roast tomatillos, pepper and garlic in the oven for 15 minutes

8 - quarter the onion and place in the food processor

9 - Add 2 tablespoons of the Ancho, Pasilla and Mulato mix to the food processor, save the rest.

10- Add salt, roasted tomatillos, garlic, Jalapenos, and drippings from the cookie sheet to the food processor.

11- Run the food processor, and you're done.


This recipe has a citrus, smoky flavor with modest heat. If you want more heat, pick hotter peppers, like Serranos or hot Jalapenos. This recipe works well at a Super Bowl party where not everyone wants a fiery salsa.

The additional pepper mixture that I haven't used will be in my next batch of chili.
