Getting the flavor profile perfect!

Achieving a perfect flavor that is enjoyable takes some adjusting. Salsa needs balancing of acidity from the tomatoes with peppers, garlic, onion and cilantro that is not simple task. My favorite trick of trade is using Chili vinegar, it adds acidic and some extra kick to salsa. If needed a little olive oil gives a more rounded end notes. I age my chili vinegar for at least a year this tops off heat from chilies giving more depth to chili vinegar taste. 

If the salsa is too fluid in consistency try using xantham gum, mix 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon xantham gum to 1 quart salsa. This thicken sauce right up so when used on tortilla chip you can walk 2 feet and not drip on yourself. Xantham gum doesn’t need to be cooked it thickens naturally.
