Scrumptious Salsa (Restaurant Style)

I read a blog by the Pioneer Woman recently and the salsa she made looked really good. I decided to adapt her recipe and it turned out SO DELICIOUS!!! I’m not a “salsa person” per se but I really love this stuff…so much so that I had just that for supper…chips and salsa!!! I hope y’all enjoy it as much as my family and I do!

 

There aren't a lot of ingredients so it doesn't take long to gather them together.

Dice up the onion pretty in small pieces.

Cut the jalapeno into small pieces. Make sure you use a glove on the hand that you hold it with. If not, you may feel like your hand had been set on fire...trust me, I know!

Put everything in your food processor or blender. Pulse til it's the consistency you like. (Work in batches if your food processor bowl is small. Then, just mix everything together.)

Scrumptious Salsa (Restaurant Style)

1 (28oz) Can Whole Tomatoes (with juice)

2 (10oz) Cans Rotel (diced tomatoes & green chilies) 

1/3 Cup Red Onion, diced small

1 Clove Garlic, minced

1 Whole Jalapeno, quartered & thinly sliced

1 tsp Sugar (more, or less, to taste)

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Ground Cumin

1/2 Cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped (even more is better!)

Juice of 1/2 lime

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse til the salsa is the consistency you like. You can taste the salsa and add more cilantro or seasoning to your taste. 

I like mild salsa so I used mild Rotel but if you like it hot you can use the hot Rotel.

Put in the fridge for at least an hour so the flavors can mingle.

Serve with tortilla chips.
