Tip

This makes a mild salsa if jalapenos are not used.

There will be plenty of leftover salsa and guacamole, which make great dips for the next day

    My salsa ended up a liquid mess Sad I followed recipe exactly and only had tomato and capsicum in bowl for cooking, but speed 4 and using fresh tomatoes made my salsa turn to liquid. Not sure if using tinned tomatoes would eliminate this problem, or is is meant to be speed 4 reverse?
    Quite disappointed in the salsa, but rest of recipe is good.

  • That is the way we make all

    Submitted by pygerbuns on 12. July 2015 - 10:07.

    That is the way we make all of our salsa and it tastes so fresh and good. The lime freshens it up and makes it delicious. You can cook this recipe down as it says but it will make it runny and there is no way to thicken it up afterwords. Putting in extra veggies helps or draining off some of the juice does the trick though. Using fresh cilantro and lime are the ingrediants that makes it tastes like fresh salsa so lets all go for it and make this basic recipe our own. We lived in Arizona for 25 years next to the Mexico border where the best salsa is made but we added our own twist to it to make it suit our taste. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Awesome recipe! I used chicken fillets instead of breast so the meat stayed really moist. Winner! Thanks.

    Submitted by kymkay on 18. March 2015 - 11:29.

    If you sit the simmering basket on top of the lid (without the MC), it will stop the splatter but still allow the steam to escape and cook down the salsa  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by kymkay on 17. March 2015 - 10:13.

    I had pre-made guacamole & salsa already in the fridge, so I just used this recipe for the spice mix, cooking & shredding of the chicken but it was yummo! A huge hit in our house, and will definitely make again.

    Submitted by Spekkie87 on 11. March 2015 - 18:29.

    Was fantastic. Agree with other comments regarding mixing the salsa on speed 4 with meausring cup off. I reduced the speed and put the measuring cup on. Could have been a real mess. Salsa was a bit runnier than I would have preferred but was still delicious and bowls were almost licked clean.

    Submitted by AmeliaT on 9. March 2015 - 22:17.

    I enjoy this dish a lot! The salsa tastes very fresh, and we made the EDC guacamole with it tmrc_emoticons.)

    I might add more spices/flavouring to the chicken next time, after steaming and before shredding, mine wasn't very heavily flavoured at all! The shredding of the chicken for me worked out perfectly though. 

    Also having the MC off meant that salsa went all on the walls and splattered on the thermomix! It was easy to clean up but would try and reduce this somehow next time (reduced the speed a bit this time). 

    I also put the corn chips, salsa, chicken and cheese in the oven a bit before eating tmrc_emoticons.) YUM

    Overall great flavours, thanks so much for sharing.

    This is a very disappointing recipe! 99% of thermomix's recipes posted on Facebook work. This one doesn't tmrc_emoticons.( cheese grating time too long (cheese clumped). Chicken shredding time / speed too long (turned to powder). Salsa was too runny / liquid like. Remaining onion in salsa... What remaining onion? I would combine chicken and salsa before layering. The concept is ok but next time, I will use a different recipe for salsa and I will shred the chicken less. 

    [/quote]=Jesse 

    I thought the recipe was great but agree cheese grating just didn't work at all.  Ours was also clumpy which made it difficult to use as intended.  It seems to me that moist cheese is unlikely to grate?

    Salsa was a little runny but I thought that it was probably using fresh tomatoes rather than canned. Overall all components tasted great!

  • Nice recipe. I actually left

    Submitted by Mscruse on 5. March 2015 - 09:46.

    Nice recipe. I actually left out the capsicum from the salsa and didn't cook it (the salsa) at all. This gave it a nice fresh flavour - especially with a squeeze of lime.

    Submitted by AngelaJ on 3. March 2015 - 17:46.

    For those who have found this recipe too runny, I wonder if after cooking Salsa in Step 8 you are meant to then take it out of TM and then add water to steam the chicken?

    We love this recipe! It has become a friday night tradition in our house tmrc_emoticons.)

    I halved all quantities to make it a 2 person meal and it worked beautifully. 

    Also, left out the red onion from the gaucamole as I didn't have any and it was fine. Used brown onion in the salsa.

  • The chicken was quite spicy

    Submitted by Nelly90 on 6. October 2014 - 10:24.

    The chicken was quite spicy so not good for my young daughter, I used spaghetti for her instead as a last minute backup. I needed to blitz the coriander a bit more as all i could taste was coriander and the salsa could have been a bit more flavorsome. I think it's a good recipe but needs to have personal adjustments to suit different tastes. It was an average meal but not too bad.

  • I think maybe people were

    Submitted by Mordrid on 28. September 2014 - 13:01.

    I think maybe people were adding water to the salsa to stream the chicken, i thought that at first  then realised you probably meant to take the salsa out first before streaming the chicken - that might explain some if the odd comments above!

    If you put the blade on reverse, speed 3 for 4 seconds you will get beautiful shreds of chicken rather than chopped chicken.
