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?

    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.

    His different salsa recipe from the show.

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

        Excellent choice! So simple too.

        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.

              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.
