How To Make The Best Salsa

Want to know how to make the best salsa? Throw in some fresh tomatoes and jalapenos to make it thick and chunky. If you like your salsa on the spicy side, feel free to use more jalapenos (and leave in the seeds).

In a food processor or blender combine parsley, cilantro, oregano, the 1 tablespoon pistachio nuts, and the onion. Cover and process until finely chopped. Set aside.
In a small bowl stir together sour cream, queso fresco, salsa, and bottled hot pepper sauce. Stir in herb mixture. Cover and chill 1 to 2 hours or until serving time. To serve, spoon into serving bowl and top with whole pistachios. Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
