A delicious, restaurant-style salsa that will complement your next Mexican fiesta perfectly! (Even if that just means a night of chips and salsa!!) Recipe source: Adapted from The Pioneer Woman
Serves: 6 cups salsa
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans rotel tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, quartered and sliced thin, leave ribs and seeds for more heat
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • Juice from 1 fresh lime
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  1. Coarsely chop onion, jalapeno and garlic.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large food processor. (At least an 11-cup processor, or work in batches)
  3. Pulse until desired consistency is met (for me it was about 7-8 times).
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. *note: you could also use a blender, but cut your veggies into smaller pieces first.
  7. *note: increase heat by adding another jalapeno, decrease heat by removing seeds and membrane from pepper first.
