i was tired of buying bottled salsa from the standard chip brands and "garden fresh" salsa is getting a bit pricey these days, so i thought, "why buy it when i can make it?" 

fresh homemade salsa? yes, please!

how to? after the jump!


1 green pepper
2 large garlic cloves
1/2 large onion or 1 small onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bundle of cilantro
1 tomato
1 jalapeño pepper {i used dried red pepper flakes}
1 can of diced tomatoes 
1 lime


1. preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. chop/slice green pepper and onion. mix green pepper, onion, and garlic cloves with olive oil on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes or until edges turn light brown. set to cool.

3. chop cilantro, tomato, and jalapeño pepper. combine green pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, tomato, jalapeño, and diced tomatoes into food processor or blender. add salt, pepper, and freshly squeezed lime juice to taste. blend for short periods of time, as not to puree the ingredients.

4. chill for about an hour before serving.
