Makes:Probably 1 and 1/2 cups salsa
A great salsa for chips, tacos, eggs, etc.
4 Roma tomatoes
2 Jalapeno peppers (can adjust depending on how spicy you want)
1 clove garlic
1 slice bacon
1 small bunch of cilantro (chopped)
1 tablespoon lard or oil (olive, corn, or peanut)
1 teaspoon salt or more to taste
Place whole tomatoes, whole peppers, whole garlic clove, and bacon and oil/lard in a partially covered skillet at medium/high heat. Remove garlic clove when soft and bacon when done.
Once the tomatoes and peppers are slightly browned/blackened in places remove them from the skillet and place them along with the garlic, bacon, salt, and a tablespoon of the cooking liquid in the skillet in a blender or molcajete. Blend until slightly chunky (add garlic, peppers, salt, liquid, and bacon first, then the tomatoes).
Pour the salsa into a small bowl and add the chopped cilantro and mix by hand. Enjoy!
