Cecilia’s Salsa

Cecilia Feser, the mother of one of my co-workers at UC Davis, sent us this wonderful concoction on a regular basis and kindly shared her delicious recipe containing several surprising ingredients.

2 – 28 oz cans petite diced tomatoes
1 – 8 oz can El Pato Mexican tomato sauce (has a yellow duck on label)
1 – 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 – 4 oz can green chile
1 pkg taco seasoning
1/2  cup water
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp horseradish
1 bunch cilantro
3 cloves garlic
4-6 green onions


  1. Mix all ingredients except cilantro, garlic & green onions.
  2. Pulse cilantro, garlic & green onions in food processor until tiny pieces.  Mix into tomato mixture.
  • This is a very fresh tasting salsa – I was surprised that she uses canned tomatoes.  The taco seasoning and horseradish were also surprising, but the combination is terrific!
