Ingredients for Spanish Salsa

6 - 8 medium ripe tomatoes
Garlic (amount depending on preference)
1 - 2 Green peppers
Olive oil
salt to taste
1 tbsp of sugar

How to make Spanish Salsa

  • Chop the tomatoes and then blend until they become a liquid.
  • Transfer tomatoes to a pan, add the salt and cook for roughly 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, de seed and chop the peppers into pieces about 2 cm in size and chop the garlic.
  • In a frying pan, add a little olive oil, the garlic and the peppers. Allow to cook gently until they are soft.
  • After about 20 minutes of cooking the tomatoes, almost all of the liquid should have evaporated and you will be left with a thick sauce. If necessary, cook a little longer.
  • When you have a thick salsa, turn the heat right down and add the sugar to the tomatoes.
  • Add the cooked garlic and peppers to your tomatoes and heat gently.
  • Serve in a bowl adding a little olive oil to the salsa.
