If you have ever been to Texas, you may have seen this spicy, smokey salsa.  My fiance, having moved from Texas misses her Tex-Mex and treats me to the dishes of her childhood often.  Its pretty simple and, onions being the exception, we grew everything ourselves in pots and such.  However the ingredients should be readily available at most major markets and you can play with the ingredients to make it your own.  That is kind of the fun of making salsa.  Create your salsa to your own tastes.  Make it as hot or mild as you like.  Use more or less peppers and onions.  Your choice!  I wish my camera was actually able to capture how beautiful and delicious this salsa is, but the photos I got will have to do.

Step 1: Gather Your Flavors

What you will need:
  • 3 Poblano Peppers
  • 1-5 Jalapeno Peppers(according to heat intensity preference)
  • 5 Anaheim chilis
  • 4-6 Tomatoes
  • 1 medium/large Onion
  • we also used some cherry tomatoes, not needed but we had some we wanted to use
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt

You can adjust the ingredients according to how many people you want to feed or how little or much you care to eat.  The heat can vary according to your tastes, but it is called Salsa Fuego...

You will Also need a food processor or blender to make it the consistency it needs to be.  You could simply hand dice and chop everything but you would likely come out with a picante as opposed to a salsa.  If that is what you are into it would probably be pretty awesome, but that is another Instructable.

You will also need a skillet that does not have a non-stick coating, the peppers won't brown enough otherwise. 
Yum! Looks wonderful. :D
Thanks! She makes just the yummiest food. I can't cook my way out of a paper bag, so it is good we found each other. Also, who doesn't like salsa?
Thanks for sharing. I might try this sometime.
I would highly suggest it. We put it on some tacos and in some beans we had for dinner last night. As I took some pics of the dinner, maybe I will post them and show the salsa in action! Hope you enjoyed this, look for more in the future.
