    Chevy's Fresh Mex Salsa. Copy Cat Recipe to make their salsa from home

    When I graduated from college I started working at a marketing agency in a different city. I didn’t know anyone in town so I got a job as a server part time at Chevy’s Fresh Mex Restaurant. I had a blast at that place. What could be better than chips and salsa, margaritas, and a tortilla making machine. Seriously, that machine was awesome.

    Here’s how it worked. You would take the dough in a ball, put it on this ‘carousel’ and watch it go around the top of the machine, drop onto this ledge and then get flattened like a pancake. Then it would go under the heated conveyor belt and come out nice, fresh, and warm. Oh, I could have eaten those tortillas all day long.

    And the salsa they made there was fantastic! A little server trick to try – ask for the ‘hot’ salsa (yep, they have two kinds in case you didn’t know) and a side of ranch. Mix the two together and dip the chips in the mix. FANTASTIC! Of course, the ranch probably isn’t the healthiest thing, but hey, you got to live a little. Despite moving back home, I still miss and crave Chevy’s food, especially the salsa, so I have been looking for a recipe for a while that mimics theirs.

    Now, I will say that this is not like Chevy’s salsa like it claims to be, but it still had great flavor so I thought I would share it. Obviously, I edited it towards our taste, so below are my instructions. If you want to see the original recipe, it’s on Food.com. Perhaps maybe if I would have roasted the tomatoes like he suggested, it might have been closer? Thoughts?

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 lbs fresh tomatoes
    1 small onion, sliced
    2 large jalapeno peppers (or 4 small peppers)
    1 small green bell pepper (or 1/2 a large pepper)
    1 large salsa pepper
    1 tbsp. cilantro
    1/2 tablespoon black pepper
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp garlic
    3 tsp sugar

    Directions

    In a food chopper, place tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, bell pepper, salsa pepper. Chop until pieces are to desired consistency. Drain excess liquid and then stir in remaining ingredients. Chill and serve. This year, our salsa peppers and jalapenos have been incredibly hot, so that is why I added sugar. If your peppers are mild, feel free to omit the sugar. This salsa definitely has a kick!

    Don’t have a food chopper? I highly recommend looking into a Tupperware Quick Chef. I bought one at one of those home parties, and I have to say – I love the fricken thing. I didn’t think it was going to work very well, but I was wrong. I chop onions, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, chicken; you name it, I’ve tried it. We have a Ninja Blender too, but I haven’t tried it yet for this recipe. I probably will test it out this summer.

    And one last tip… I recommend using mesh strainers they are great for draining the liquid, and especially if you do a lot of canning. They are wonderful!! Hope you like this salsa as much as we do!!!
