There’s No Smoke Without Fire

On Monday we borrowed a pile of comics from the library. On our way home we stopped to buy some bread and somehow a bag of nachos went to our basket too. At home we made hot and smoky salsa and spent the evening on the balcony reading comics and eating nachos and salsa.

Smoky Salsa

6 ripe tomatoes (450-500g)
2 garlic cloves
some onion stalks OR 1 small onion
few slices of canned jalapeño
1 tbsp liquid from the jalapeño can OR hot sauce
2 tsp extra hot chili powder*
1 tsp chipotle powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
pinch of salt and brown sugar

Scald and peel the tomatoes (or if you don’t mind about tomato peel pieces in your salsa you can leave the peels on). Chop everything and mix together in a pot. Bring to boil, turn the heat on low and simmer 30 minutes or so, stirring ever now and then.

*We used extra hot chili powder and the salsa was rather fiery. If you like milder salsa, use regular chili powder and/or smaller amount.
