Specialty Recipe

Salsa Serrano

A spicy tomato sofrito relish to garnish hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.

Ingredients
3 Tablespoons Spanish olive oil
4 Serrano chiles, seeded and minced (4 teaspoons)
5 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
2-1/2 cups medium chopped Spanish onions
1-1/4 cups diced yellow Holland peppers
5 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 heaping teaspoon dark brown sugar
1-1/2 Tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
3 heaping Tablespoons fresh coriander (cilantro)
2-1/2 cups fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and medium chopped
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons kosher salt
One 3-ounce jar small capers, drained

Add olive oil to a medium-sized saute pan. Place over a medium-high flame. When oil is hot, stir in Serrano chiles and garlic. Saute for about 1 minute, stirring often so garlic does not burn.

Add onion and saute for 1 to 2 minutes. Add yellow pepper, saute 1 minute. Stir in tomato paste, brown sugar, oregano and coriander; cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, vinegar, salt, pepper and capers. Turn up heat to high and bring sauce to slight boil; remove from heat immediately.

The vegetables should retain crispness. Chill thoroughly before serving.

Makes: approximately 1 quart
