Anyone not familiar with Pappasito's, it is a Texas based, slightly higher end tex-mex place. Overall, pretty good food but the salsa is damned good. I found this recipe on a copycat site and decided to try it. Turned out almost exaclty like thiers, but was a bit blander. I ended up doubling up on the garlic salt,pepper and celery salt. I also added a few dashes of Yucateco habenero sauce, since it wasnt very hot. Next time I will probably skip the yucateco and just add another jalapeno. Goig to try this with chicken fajitas by the pool today with some cold XX.

8 Roma Tomatoes (Whole)
1 Small Yellow Onion Diced (1/3 - 1/2 C Diced)
1 Fresh Jalapeno Pepper Stem Removed and Seeded
1/2 tsp. Celery Salt
1/8 tsp. Oregano
1/4 C Fresh Cilantro
1/2 tsp. Sugar
1 Fresh Pablano Pepper
1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
1/2 - 3/4 C water
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper

Preparation Instructions:
In a moderately hot skillet that has been sprayed with a cooking
spray brown the coarsely chopped
Pablano pepper and jalapeno pepper. Brown and stir until the skins
have turned dark on many
sides of peppers. ad tomatoes and brown them until the skins on the
tomatoes have turned a dark
brown on several sides, remove pan from heat. Put onion in hot
skillet that has been removed from
the heat and stir. In a food processor add celery salt, oregano
cilantro, sugar, garlic salt and
pepper. Pour peppers, onions and tomatoes and add water a little at
a time, process just enough to
chop to a medium consistency but not to a smooth paste, leave a
little chunky.
Remove from processor and pour in hot skillet turn up heat quickly
stir for 3 min and serve hot.

 I ate at pappasitos once and thought the food sucked but the salsa was pretty good.
