Step 2: Gather Your Ingredients

Picture of Gather Your Ingredients
For my salsa, I used about:

25 lbs of tomaotes
5 lbs of tomatillos
5 Jalapeno peppers, seeds removed
5 pablano peppers
2-3 red bell peppers
5-6 large onions
1 whole head of garlic
1-2 tbs of cumin
1-2 tbs of chilli pepper
1 tbs of kosher salt
2-3 tsp of black pepper

I don't really measure things, going mostly by feel, but these measurements are pretty accurate. With seasonings, you want enough so it cooks into salsa, but perhaps its better to err on less then more as you can easily add more seasoning after its done cooking to fine tune the flavor.
