How do I make salsa?

I love hot smooth salsa. I don't want chunks. I can't buy this in the stores and would love to make my own. How?

      good point...

      Here's how I make salsa
      grape tomatoes
      red onion
      lime juice
      chipotle w/ adobo
      put it in a cuisinart
      it's good raw or you can put it in a pan for a few minutes and cook the tomatoes.

      1. I too like smooth salsa to eat with tortilla chips. For other uses, I still have chunky salsa. To make the smooth salsa I simply use a blender and then through a sieve. Then I put it into one of those red ketchup squeeze bottles so we can just squeeze a dollop onto a chip instead of dipping.

        1. Pioneer Woman's recipe is easy and you can make it as hot and smooth as you desire.

            Excellent choice! So simple too.

          2. Tomatillo is my new salsa ingredient of choice.

            On "Mexico- One Plate Plate at a Time" Rick Bayless made a simple and terrific looking tomatillo-avocado salsa in a blender.
