Bell Peppers: Freshly diced colorful bell peppers are the key ingredient of this salsa. I have used red, yellow and green bell peppers. You can also add orange bell pepper if it is available.
Onion: I have used red onion for this recipe. If you do not have red onion, you can use any onion you have in your pantry.
Tomato: In a classic salsa, tomato is a key ingredient. However, you can avoid tomato in this recipe, I have used less tomato here. Always de-seed the tomatoes before adding them in the salsa.
Others: Green chili, cilantro leaves (or coriander leaves), rock salt, lemon, etc.
Instructions to Make Bell Pepper Salsa
If you want to make this easy bell pepper salsa recipe, then follow the written directions below.
Wash the bell peppers and pat dry them with a kitchen towel. It is important to cut all of your ingredients into uniformly small cubes for a salsa.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Ensure that they are thoroughly combined. Serve the salsa immediately or chill in the refrigerator for a while before serving chilled.
Adjust the amount of green chili to increase or decrease the salsa's spicy level.
You can create red pepper salsa or green pepper salsa with any variety of bell pepper instead of using them all. If you're only using red bell pepper, you can skip the tomatoes and make red bell pepper salsa no tomatoes.
Instead of making fresh bell pepper salsa you can also try roasted bell pepper salsa.
I would always recommend making this Mexican bell pepper salsa fresh. If there is any leftover salsa, transfer it to an airtight jar and refrigerate for up to two days.
If you keep the salsa for a long time, the bell peppers will lose their crunch and texture.
- Always use fresh bell peppers for this recipe.
- Dice the vegetables uniformly with a knife rather than a chopper, as chopper or food processors tend to make them mushy.
