How to make Jalapeño Green Salsa
01 Start by washing the jalapeño peppers thoroughly. If you want a milder salsa, you can remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeños. For a spicier version, leave them in. Chop the jalapeños into small pieces.
02 Heat a Skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of oil. Sauté the Chopped onions and minced garlic until they become fragrant and slightly translucent, which should take about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let them cool.
04 Squeeze the juice of two limes over the mixture. The lime juice will add a zesty, tangy flavor to your salsa.
05 Season the salsa with salt and pepper. Start with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper, then adjust according to your taste preference.
06 You can either use a Food Processor to blend the ingredients for a smoother consistency or simply hand-mix for a chunkier salsa. If using a Food Processor, pulse until you reach your desired texture.
07 Transfer the salsa to a serving Bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together. Serve it chilled with tortilla chips, tacos, grilled meats, or any other dish of your choice.
