Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa

Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa

Yield: About 6 cups (a.k.a. a ginormous batch)

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

28-ounce can whole tomatoes (peeled) with juice
2 10-ounce cans Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
¼ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 jalepeño, quartered and sliced thin
½ cup cilantro
Juice from ½ a fresh lime
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cumin

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until you get desired consistency (was about 10 pulses for me). Refrigerate for at least one hour, and then serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

*Note 1: This makes a large quantity so use at least an 11-cup food processor, or work in batches.

*Note 2: If you prefer a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membrane from the jalapeno before adding it to the food processor.
