Homemade Tomato Salsa – Ingredients

  • Tomatoes
  • Red onions
  • Corn tortilla chips
  • Limes
  • Red chillies
  • Coriander
  • Garlic

Dice the red onions and chillies as fine as you can. If you like it especially hot, leave the seeds in the chillies for extra heat!

Peel the garlic and thinly slice it. Next, add coarse salt to it and use the back of the knife to crush it. This will turn the garlic into a paste.

Add all those ingredients to a large bowl, along with the chopped coriander.

Quarter the tomatoes and remove the seeds from the centre to leave you with just the pure flesh of the tomatoes. You’ll be using the juicy skin pieces for the salsa.

Chop them up as small as you can, using a large sharp knife. Keep chopping for a good 2-3 minutes until you create a nearly smooth tomato paste.
