  • 1 habanero pepper (seeds removed)
  • 2 poblano peppers (seeds removed)
  • 3 jalapeño peppers (seeds removed)
  • 2 lbs fresh tomatoes, seeds and pulp removed (or one 32oz canned chopped tomatoes)
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 Tbs lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt (more to taste)
  • cilantro, chopped (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients EXCEPT CILANTRO to blender. Blend until texture is how you prefer your salsa - chunky, smooth, etc.

  2. Check the seasoning; adding more salt a 1/2 tsp at a time, if needed. Top with chopped cilantro. 

  3. TIP: Salsa is best made a day before using. This gives the flavors time to marinate.

  4. Option: Before blending, consider roasting all the ingredients except cilantro with a little olive oil @ 350F for 15 minutes. Roasting adds a depth of flavor and cuts the bite from the garlic and onion. Either way this is a great salsa!
