Salsa Charlene

mom came home from visiting and brought me a few bites of this wonderful salsa

the next day i headed to the farmer’s market and grocery store to make some of the salsa for us~~and my expensive chopper turned it all into a liquid so she

called her friend to find the name of the chopper they have~~i got on the internet that afternoon and ordered one for us

the gourmet quick chop 2000 works like a charm

and us jesco

gave me one to give away to my readers~~enter here {there are three ways to enter and you can enter as many times as you wish}

but the recipe listed in the recipe booklet that came with the gourment quick chop 2000  is an excellent salsa

and like many cooks, i have adjusted the original recipe for the way i like to cook things,

2 medium ripe tomatoes (quartered)

1/2 yellow bell pepper

1/4 medium size  purple onion

8 springs of cilantro

4 cloves of garlic

2 tsp of lemon juice

2 tsp of lime juice

3 serrano peppers (1 for mild, 2 for medium~~and if you remove the seeds it will be even a milder hot pepper)

use the gourmet quick chop 2000 to obtain consistency desired~~the gourmet quick chop 2000 allows you to easily control the finer cuts while a few less spin will result in larger chunks~~i love the way it chops garlic with a few spins a very fine chop can be obtained and a few less spins~~perfect size tomatoes
