Food | Salsa ni Teresa

I totally forgot how I discovered this easy-to-do recipe but ever since I started making this salsa, it has been a big hit among my friends. This is best served with nacho chips, grated or diced cheddar cheese.


1. Tomatoes
2. Green Bell Peppers or Red Bell Peppers (I prefer green than red. Complimentary colors!)
3. Lemon Juice (substitutes: Kalamansi Juice or Vinegar)
3. Sugar
4. Ground Black Pepper
5. Chili / Chili powder (if you want it hot hot hot!)


1. Dice tomatoes and green bell peppers and then place them in your serving bowl.
- Tomato seeds? Okay. Bell Pepper seeds? No, no!
- How many? Well, that depends on how many people are eating and which flavor you prefer to dominate. Estimate! I prefer mine a little sweet. A good ratio will be 6 to 8 regular-sized to 1 regular-sized bell pepper.

2. Add 2 to 3 teaspoons of Lemon Juice or its substitute. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar. Add a pinch of Ground Black Pepper.
- Again, the taste will depend on your flavor preference but try to balance the sweet, spicy and sour flavors of the ingredients.

3. Mix and serve with grated or diced cheddar cheese and a bag of nachos. Enjoy!
