Why I Love This Recipe

I have always wanted to make salsa but never had any luck using fresh tomatoes - so I tried using canned, and this was the result

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cans diced tomatoes - drained
2 dried chile de arbol
4 T roasted garlic
1 dried anaheim chile
salt to taste


cut off stems of chiles and shake out seeds, then put in small saucepan covered with water

Simmer about 45 minutes or until chile is fully hydrated.

Put in blender with diced tomatoes and roasted garlic - pulse to mix

Be careful not to over blend - you still want the salsa to be kind of chunky.

If it is too hot, you can add one more can of diced tomatoes - the chiles will always vary in heat so you have to kind of play it by ear
