    I was wondering if anyone makes their own salsa or if they have found the best brand already in a jar? I love regular/traditional red salsa, and there is this great resturant where I live called Hacienda - that has the greatest salsa I have ever had before. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it, I've had some bad times tring to work with what I found out were "fake" recipes. [​IMG]

    Also, does anyone make their own pizza and pizza sauce from scratch? Care to share the recipe?

    Thanks!

    My salsa:

    6-8 roma tomatoes
    1/2 small onion
    1 garlic clove
    cilantro
    1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed
    lemon/lime juice
    salt & pepper to taste

    cut romas in half. Scoop out seeds and the "wet" goo inside.

    Put romas, onion, garlic, cilantro leaves and jalapeno into small chopper (or big chopper, whatever you have). Chop until tomatoes are dice sized pieces. Add lemon/lime juice, s & p to taste.

    Keith and Kwang - Thank you both for the suggestions! I will go to the market soon and test it for myself.

    Yay. A local.

    Yes, Hacienda chips & sauce are awesome. (Well, their chips are anyways).

    As far as salsa you can find around here I'd recommend a brand called "Private Selection" and look for "Restaurant Style" on the label.
    I get this up at Krogers up on McKinley (20).
    I love it.....it's pretty close in flavor to Haciendas but is a bit chunkier. Good stuff.
    If you buy some & don't like it let me know & I'll come pick it up from you. [​IMG]

    I was going to say something clever involving silica but I see I've already been beaten to the punch. *walk away*

    Check out this thread, paying particular attention to post #7 [​IMG] for pizza sauce and crust making recommendations.

    Also this pizza thread has a lot of suggestions (this time read post #13).

    Actually there are plenty of very good suggestions in both threads.

    IMO, the very best pizza should be light on cheese, letting the flavor of the other ingrediants predominate.

    Fresh spices and vegetables (out of the garden) is the only way to go. Those nasty tomatoes at the grocery store will doom you from the start.

    So Ryan. Have ya made the trip to Krogers?
    I forgot to mention but that "Private Selection" is a generic brand salsa. Don't let the term scare you as it's much better than the name brand stuff.
    In fact, I think I'm going to have to pick some up tonight.

    As far as chips? Still looking for a good brand. I like the "authentic" mexican (azteca?) chips I see in the stores. They are a bit harder/crunchier than the others & have a nice corn flavor, but nothing compares to Haciendas fresh chips (heavily salted)

    I will have to look around for some fresh salsa recipes though. My mother loaded me up with about 5 lbs of tomatos from her garden. I was going to make BLT, but this thread reminded me of a 2nd option [​IMG]
