    DEVOUR THIS: Salsa El Diablo
    By  Barry

    Hello everyone out in Shinedown Land. Welcome to Devour This. For those of you who don't know me, my other passion aside from drums is cooking in my kitchen. When at home I spend hours making kick ass meals for my family. I am going to share with all of you some of my favorite recipes as well as recipes from some of my friends. Most of my food is not going to be traditional and will vary greatly in style. Creole, Southern, Tex-Mex, Asian, Indian, Good ol' American, and many others. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to experiment as much as possible with these recipes. I tend NOT to measure in my kitchen too often. Use your sense of taste and smell. There are no rules in rock and roll cooking...... Peace, Love, and Cold Beer.

    Salsa El Diablo
    Serving Size: 10

    Ingredients:
    10-12 Roma Tomatoes, Diced small
    1 Med. Vidalia or Sweet onion, Diced small
    1 Med. Green Pepper, Diced Small
    1 Bunch Cilantro, Diced
    1 Can Organic tomatoes Whole, Diced
    2 Jalapenos, Diced Fine
    1 Habenero Pepper, Diced Fine
    1 tbsp Ancho Chili Powder
    1 tbsp Chipotle Chili Powder
    2 tbsp Cumin
    1-2 tbsp Honey
    2 tbsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
    2 tbsp Lime Juice
    Salt
    Pepper

    Directions:
    When writing this recipe I realized how much I don't measure. Salsa is a very basic thing to make, but is really all about taste. If you like it hot, add more peppers. If you can't handle the heat add only one jalapeno. Adjust all the ingredients to your liking they are just guidelines. Also, yes I realize this isn't a traditional recipe, but what kind of fun would that be.
    There are two ways to do this recipe. If your in a hurry or like very thin salsa, chop everything up in a Cuisinart and enjoy. I personally enjoy the time in the kitchen slowly chopping and dicing everything by hand with my favorite knife. When available use the best ingredients you can. Organic veggies and good spices. Bob Marlett (producer of Leave a Whisper) taught me one great lesson...
    "Good in, Good out". Tomatoes can vary greatly in ripeness and flavor, so you may have to substitute with more canned and less fresh. So thats about it. Chop/Dice everything up to the consistency you like it, mix it all together in a bowl, add your spices and mix again. Serve with nice chips and a cold cerveza. Keeps a few days in fridge but I promise it won't last that long.

    Variations:
    If you want to take it even further you can add other things to make it interesting. Add fresh mango or pineapple and serve over a nice grilled fish. Add corn and black beans for a little extra texture. ENJOY!
