Salsa is by far my all time favorite snack. Coincidentally, Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines and nothing makes me happier than a meal filled with chips, salsa and frozen mango margaritas. So with my new food processor, I decided to break it in with homemade salsa. To say it turned out well is an understatement.
I wanted a recipe that used fresh tomatoes but all the ones I found used canned so I trusted it. I didn’t have a can of Rotel Tomatoes and Chiles, so I used plain tomatoes. This recipe was the perfect amount – it made enough for one big bowl. Perfect amount to serve at a party.
I left the seeds right in the jalapenos, and it still could have been spicier. This is my jalapeno from the farmer’s market. 🙂
I have a small food processor – a Ninja Express Chop. It’s about 3 cups, so it was filled to the top with salsa goodness.
Chop chop chop it up.
What you need:
1 can diced tomatoes (use Rotel tomatoes and chiles if you have it)
1/4 onion, chopped into thick chunks
1 clove garlic
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 jalapeno, seeds can stay in
Fresh cilantro – I didn’t measure but I LOVE cilantro, so just throw a bunch in
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
What you do:
1. Throw all the vegetables, lime juice and cilantro in the food processor. Process until desired consistency.
2. Add cumin, salt & pepper. Pulse a few times just to combine.
