Re: Best Boat Snack
For us we eat this stuff by the gallon, recipe from back home in Texas with a bazillion variants. I have added corn, kidney beans and all sorts of stuff to change this around. My favorite change is to roast the peppers and or tomatoes with a small torch. But this is the basic recipe.
10 Roma Tomatoes (or similar)
1/4 Red Onion
1/4 White Onlon
1/4 cup cilantro
2 cloves garlic
5 or more Serrano peppers or other hot peppers depending on your constitution. I have been doing habeneros lately as well.
Grind all this to your desired consistancy. A blender or food processor makes it easy.
Stir in juice from 1 lime, 1/2 cup chopped green onions (or chives) and one tablespoon of olive oil. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste.
Also, up here in AK I have a great supply of Copper River Red Salmon and we smoke tons of it. Great with many cheeses and on crackers and keeps really well.
