I did a very quick search online for salsa recipes, and thought Alton Brown's looked easy enough. BUT. . . I didn't add jalapenos, ancho chiles, olive oil or lime. Or chili powder. So I guess I really didn't follow his recipe, but I was inspired by it.
Here's what's in mine:
a variety of tomatoes, including the Goliaths growing on my balcony
a variety of peppers, including the Giant Marconi, also growing on my balcony
salt and pepper
...and shot (or two) of Stoli
I don't know why I was compelled to add vodka, other than I'm interested in the combination of certain "spirits" and baking, especially when added to desserts, so it made sense on that level. Either way, my recipe turned out nicely - garden fresh - and that's all that matters.
