When do you put the onions in? Before cooking or when you’re blending the ingredients with the salt and cilantro?

Hi Jenn,
I made this and am to the cooling it off before putting in the blender… Was wondering if you blend the juice from the crockpot too or drain it? Thanx so much!

I am a wimp when it comes to very spicy food. How spicy is it when you use 2 jalapenos?

I made it with two and I would say it’s medium heat. Definitely not mild! I thought it was a good amount of heat.

Do you peel the tomatoes or leave the peel on?

Sue, I just made it and I would DEFINITELY take the peel off. I ended up picking out the peel piece by piece after I had blended it up. It was not a great texture!

I like this salsa, but I feel like it’s missing something! I’m from So Cal and very picky with salsa though! I added a little bit more salt, some cumin and garlic powder. Took the peel out….really disliked the texture. I almost feel like it’s watered down too much. Maybe if I removed the juices before I blended it? I liked the consistency of the salsa though.

Making the salsa right now, tomatoes, onions, and peppers cooking down as I type. I will add some lime juice while blending, just a touch. I put two jalapenos and 1 serrano chili. We live in San Diego, we like our salsa HOT, HOT, HOT! We use salsa with everything. I’m hoping I no longer have to pay 4+ dollars for salsa that tends to go bad in a few days. I’d much rather make it, this way I know what’s in it!
