Mary's Mexican Ranchero Salsa

Mary's Mexican Ranchero Salsa

This is my favorite salsa. I got the recipe from my mother who has been making it since she was a young girl living with her grandparents on their ranch in Mexico. You can adjust the hotness according to your preference. Serve it over scrambled eggs or on anything you like.

    Transfer tomatoes and jalapenos carefully to a blender and process until pureed.
