Today's Salsa: Mom's Extra Hot Salsa

I love salsa. I put it on everything and I have never come across a salsa I don't like but I have never had salsa better then my own mom's. That's why I tried my best to recreate her recipe. Of course when I asked her for the recipe the response she kinda of laughed at me and said that there wasn't one. Typical.

1 large onion
6 tomatoes
4 jalapenos
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup My Nana's salsa picante
lime juice
green habenero sauce


Throw everything in a food processor or blender till it looks like salsa. Then grab a frosty beverage and some chips and eat.

Warning: Be careful with the habenero sauce, a little goes along way!
