Your Favorite "Native" Recipes

Hey ya'll -

I thought it would be fun to post our favorite recipes from "home". For instance, I'm a sixth generation Texan so I'll share my hot sauce and quick chili recipes.

I'd love to see other authentic recipes from around the country (or world!)...whatever your home is known for.

Sound like fun?

Here's my hot sauce recipe (that's what we call it here - you may call it salsa ) It's super easy and better than any you'll have in a restaurant.

- 1 big can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes - I use Contadina - don't use fresh tomatoes because they water down the sauce
- 6 serrano chilis
- 6 small jalapenos or 4 large ones
- 1/2 red onion
- juice of 1 lime
- 4-5 cloves fresh garlic
- handful fresh cilantro
- pinch salt

Just remove the stems from the peppers, peel the garlic and onion and just throw it all into the food processor (that's what I do). Of course you can chop it all by hand, too. Store in refigerator for up to a week. YUM!!!

I'll add my quick chili recipe when I have a few more minutes...

Well, this isn't really a recipe, but Chicago hot dogs are my favorite! Gotta have Vienna beef hot dogs with a cucumber spear, the crazy bright green relish, mustard, diced onions and tomatoes and celery salt. But no ketchup!
