רוטב סלסה

Organizing a small event? Friends coming over to watch the game? Here is a spicy salsa (not very spicy!) And very tasty and easy to prepare - and sure better than any purchased salad dip that God knows what is included in them.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 40 mins


  • 2 Red Peppers
  • 1 Medium - Large Purple Onion
  • 1 Hot Green Pepper
  • 28 Ounces Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 Garlic
  • As Needed Salt
  • A Pinch Sugar
  • As Needed Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Sweet Paprika
  • 1 Full Tablespoon Dry Oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil


  • Peel the red onion in half.
  • Finely chop the first half and coarsely chop the second half.
  • Red peppers - coarsely chop one pepper, finely chop the second pepper.
  • Slice the garlic into as thin slices as possible.
  • For the hot peppers, remove the stem tail - and slice into rounds about the thickness of a quarter inch.
  • Heat canola oil in a medium pan.
  • Start frying the onion and a little chopped red pepper.
  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Put in the coarse onion and red pepper and hot pepper.
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes until the coarse onion and pepper begins softening.
  • Put in the garlic and fry for another minute.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, a little salt, pepper, sugar, oregano and paprika and stir.
  • Lower the heat and reduce the sauce over low heat - about 20 minutes with the occasional stir.
  • Close the heat and wait for the salsa to cool.
  • You can serve it “as is”. I love to take half and grind it in a food processor for 10 seconds and then mix it back with the rest - so the flavours become richer.
  • It's ready! Serve along with nachos in front of a good movie or game.
