Garden Salsa / Burrito Filling
Collection of sweet and hot peppers, cut into rough dices including seeds and webs
Equal or slightly short volume / amount of Roma tomatoes, diced.
White onion diced – a quarter fraction or less of the combined above volume. (Yellow onion is sweeter and less present as a flavor if preferred…)
Crush the ingredients in a bowl with a spoon or pestle, or pulse / combine in a blender / food processor. (Blending down into a sauce isn’t crazy.)
Add dashes / small amounts to taste. Balance for use:
Chili powder (cayenne)
Lime & Lemon juice (we use Meyer lemons if they’re ready on our tree. Sweeter.)
Garlic, crushed finely
Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Slivers of green onion, teeny amount of crushed mint
Red Turmeric – deepens color
Red pepper flakes (if cooking as a sauce will follow, to correct spice levels – add black beans, heat through and immediately spoon over rice.) 2nd day – Goes great with chicken or pork. Add an avocado garnish and some sour cream. Burritos with lettuce or Arugula.
Different tomatoes (watch juice levels)
Different onions / aromatics…
