Food Friday: Quick Easy Restaurant-like Salsa

Salsa goes well with many things besides corn chips.  Baked potatoes, scrambled eggs, stew, mashed potatoes, just about any casserole.

Here is a very quick and easy one.  The original recipe is here
The little tin with invisible label at the bottom of the photo is the tinned jalapenos.  It was Ortega brand, I am pretty sure.

What you need:

  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic which you have peeled
  • 1 cup fresh washed cilantro (about ½ a bunch or less if you are not such a fan of cilantro)
  • 2 Tablespoons canned chopped jalapenos
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice  (I used lemon juice but it was still good.  Don't forget the lime, though. )
  • Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you like the consistency.  I did it in a blender and had a more mushy consistency than I like but it still tasted very good.
This salsa is more of a mush.  Next time I will use the food processor instead of the blender. If you like chunky, this was a failure....
