Tips and Tricks

Handling Jalapenos

Wear gloves when handling jalapenos to avoid skin irritation. If you don’t have gloves, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly afterward and avoid touching your face.

Dicing Onions

To reduce tearing when dicing onions, chill them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before cutting. This helps minimize the release of the chemicals that cause tears.

Blending Ingredients

Blend the ingredients just enough to combine them well but avoid over-blending. This ensures you maintain a nice chunky texture rather than turning it into a smooth puree.

Storage

Store your salsa in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It can last for up to a week, and the flavors will meld and improve over time.

Serving Suggestion

For an added twist, sprinkle some fresh cilantro on top of your salsa before serving. It adds a burst of freshness and enhances the overall flavor.
