    Default Who has Mexican Restaurant salsa recipe?

    All right, all you good cooks out there. Packyderm, you mentioned that you can duplicate a lot of the fast food recipes, so maybe you can help.

    I love the salsa at Mexican Restaurants. I have tried all kinds from the store, I have tried adding to the kinds from the store, I have tried making from scratch...all to no avail.

    I've checked on the internet and did find a couple of possibilities that I haven't tried yet, but I thought I'd come here first where the good cooks are! Who needs google?!

    Anyway, if anyone knows how to make what is served "free" with chips at Mexican Restaurants, I'd love to give it a try.

    Sorry, no prizes are offered...just a simple thank you.

    I've been on a 20 year Margarita & fajita safari and had many messican cantina's as customers.
    Every one has a different formula, and it varies from batch to batch.
    Find one you like and go in enough to become a regular, they will probably give you the recipe, or at least the seasonings.

    I buy buy some bulk food from my favorite restraunt, 150 lbs of rice & beans was less than $80.00 last month.

    Thanks, applecider. In looking at the ingredients, I'm not sure that this would be the taste I'm searching for but it certainly is worth the try. The restaurant variety doesn't seem to have as much garlic. And, yes, I could either reduce or eliminate that to taste. We'll see.

    We have one called La Fiesta. There are 3 or so in the area so I don't know if it's a chain or not. The other local one has a name that I can't quite come up with right now. It's in a small town so we just say "let's go to the Mexican restaurant," and that's enough to pinpoint the location.

    I was thinking this too .... which one? Me .... I start with the basics. Tomato, garlic, onion, jalapenos, garlic and jalapenos, add some salt and a bit of vinegar and into the blender it goes. Taste and make minor adjustments ....

    I used the salsa recipe from the Border Grill cookbook, and frankly it is the best of all.

    I will dig out my copy and post this for everyone.

    I make a simple salsa that everyone around here loves. I was trying to copy our Mexican Rest.

    2 large cans of whole tomatoes
    2 onions
    1/2 cup cillantro
    1 tbl spoon of lime juice

    add sea salt and jal peppers to taste


    Chop up the tomatoes, onions and cillantro

    mix it all in a bowl and start dipping
