Tomatoes Salsa Fiesta Salad


1 (15 ounce) cans canned tomatoes

3 fresh jalapeño peppers

2 yellow onions, finely chopped

2 tablespoons garlic, minced

1 tablespoon white sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 (7 ounce) can diced green chili pepper

½ cup minced fresh cilantro

2 limes, juiced

1 habanero pepper, seeded


Roast jalapeños over a grill or gas burner until completely blackened.

Seal jalapeños in a plastic bag or a bowl covered with plastic wrap, and allow steaming until skins are loosened.

When cool, remove skin, stem, and seeds.

Place jalapeños, onions, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper into the bowl of a blender or food processor. Pulse to chop and blend, then pour the mixture into a large bowl.

Mix with the can of green chili, cilantro and lime juice.

Pulse the tomatoes in batches to desired size, and add to green chili mixture.

Return one cup of chopped tomatoes to the blender along with the habanero, and puree well.

Strain the puree to remove any large pieces of habanero, and add to the tomatoes.

Mix well, cover, and chill in the refrigerator at least one hour to allow flavors to blend.

Serve as an accompaniment to other dishes or with tortilla chips.
