    Definitely NOT Pappasito’s salsa. I don’t even know where to begin in making changes/alterations to this recipe but I just know that this is not the “sito’s salsa” that my family feasts on embarrassingly too often!

  • Info

    This is NOT the recipe. No water, no sugar, no celaery salt, no pablono pepper. It does have cerrano peppers, garlic powder, and salt. You roast the tomatos, and peppers

    We tried this recipe and found it to be very delicious and much like the one at Pappasittos. It does take a bit of time to make but is well worth the effort.

    This salsa tastes nothing like Pappasitos! It tasted like spaghetti sauce, it might be better if you leave the oregano out. I was so disappointed to end up with spicy spaghetti sauce after spending all the time to prepare the salsa.

    I use this recipe often and it is the best one I have found. I do not add the water as the tomatoes usually have enough and often add more cilantro, depending on how strong the flavor is of the cilantro I buy. Also, I typically make two batches – a mild batch with 2 jalapenos and a spicier batch substituting habaneros (2-4) for the jalapenos. I always need to “salt to taste” afterwards prior to serving, but everyone who tries it loves it.
