Restaurant Style Salsa


There's just something about going to a Mexican restaurant and snacking on chips and salsa while you wait for your meal.  It is soooo goooood!  You can never purchase salsa as tasty as they serve in a restaurant... but now you don't have to.  This salsa that will put restaurants to shame! 


I started playing around with salsas a few months ago, and have slowly created this perfect salsa.  I'm serious. It's amazing!   My husband literally begs for this if I haven't made it in a few weeks.  I love how incredibly simple it is.  Just throw everything into a blender!  That's it!  I will never buy salsa from the store again.  I like my salsa with a bit of a kick to it, so if you like a milder salsa, cut back on the jalapeno.  This salsa is amazing on its own, or add it to tacos, burritos, or anything you choose!  Just make it!  Tonight!!  :)


Ingredients
1 (28oz) can of diced tomatoes
1 (15oz) can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 C onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 jalapenos, thinly sliced
a pinch of sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cumin
3/4 C fresh cilantro
1/2 a lime, juiced



Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.  Pulse until desired consistency is reached.  It doesn't take much.  I like a slightly chunky salsa, so I only pulse my Blendtec blender about 4 times.
  2. Taste with a chip and adjust the seasoning as desired.  
  3. Allow to chill at least one hour before serving...if you can wait that long!
