Tito’s Taco’s is an institution in Culver City, where I grew up. This is one of my favorite places for tacos, salsa and burrito’s. Since I moved away I really miss their food – and I REALLY miss their salsa.
I came across some copy-cat recipes on Pinterest the other day. So, I decided to give it try. I’ve put my own twist on it, as usual. I’m not going to say this is a perfect copy-cat… but it’s pretty darned close. And, even if you’ve never been to – or heard of – Tito’s, I think you’ll like this fresh salsa.
8 -9 Roma tomatoes, cut into quarters
1/4 white onion
4 pickled jalapenos, sliced
Juice from the pickled jalapenos can, to taste (I used almost all of it)
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Juice from one lime
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Put the tomatoes into a food processor and blend. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until everything is chopped and the desired consistency. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!
