 When a Salsa is this good, everything served with it and no matter how good seems secondary…presenting Tomato Salsa in the lead role!! Enjoy this ensemble cast movie 🙂

Padma says” I came across this recipe during my stay in the U.S. My husband’s aunt had one day made salsa at home which I happened to like a lot. Up until then I used to buy it from the store but once I started making it and was enjoyed by all my friends, that was the end of store bought salsa. There is a certain freshness and zing to it that is enjoyed by almost everyone.

As for the Tortilla Spirals/Pinwheels, it is an easy appetizer which is different at the same time. And the best thing about it is that you can change the filling according to the ingredients that you have on hand.The best part, this appetizer is served cold so you need not worry about slogging in the kitchen in front of the stove till the 11th hour.

There are never enough to go around no matter how many you make because they disappear in a jiffy. So go ahead and use your imagination and try using different fillings and combinations.


4 large firm tomatoes cut into large quarters
2 green tomatoes cut into quarters
1 medium onion cut into chunks
3 green onions
2-3 green chilies
1 banana pepper
3 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
4-5 garlic cloves
4-5 drops of hot pepper sauce
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
Salt to taste


Put all of the above in a food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you’d like. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed. Refrigerate the salsa for at least an hour before serving.

Tortilla Spirals/Pinwheels

Take tortillas and spread softened cream cheese and liberally spread diced jalapenos, olives, sun dried tomatoes, green onions, etc. Now roll the tortillas up and refrigerate for at least an hour. Slice the roll ups and serve with your choice of accompaniments.
