Have I mentioned we like Mexican food? Well, I love fresh homemade salsa…problem is you are never guaranteed to have a good ripe tomato. The beauty of this recipe is that it uses mostly (or all if you want) canned tomatoes. I know what you are thinking, but canned tomatoes are picked and packed at their peak so you are guaranteed perfect salsa.
1 1/2 cans canned tomatoes with juice*
3 fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
a couple dashes Tabasco sauce, opt
Process in food processor or blender for just a few seconds for chunky salsa or a bit longer for a smoother texture.
*Sometimes I add only one can of tomatoes and then add 1-2 fresh tomatoes. I hate having half a can leftover, so this has become my standard. If I have no fresh tomatoes, I add 2 cans (one drained).
