Homemade Hot Salsa Mexican Restaurant Style

 Hi Folks, Here's another red salsa that is not  as hot as an earlier post and it also makes a smaller amount.

You will need:

3 serrano peppers or peppers of your choice
2 cloves of garlic
1 half of an onion

Place ingredients in a pan and roast on stove top or under broiler. Roast until
ingredients become soft and charred. Rotating and checking often.

As ingredients become charred and soft
transfer to another container.

Cover with plastic wrap or foil.

The onions will take the longest amount of time.

Once the onions are soft and have some char, add them to the container and wait 10 minutes.

After 10  minutes peel the garlic,
and remove the stems from the peppers.
You can also remove the outer skin from the peppers and the seeds if you wish.

 Place ingredients  into a blender, add a 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes (whole or diced), 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 clove of peeled raw garlic.

 Blend until smooth.
 If you desire add 3 tablespoons of cilantro, and blend.

Transfer to another container and chill for at least 1 hour.

I hope you try and enjoy this salsa. Eat it with chips, or add it to cooked meats to make tacos or enchiladas, add it to some scrambled eggs and serve on top of some refried beans. It is a very versatile salsa.

Thanks for reading.
