This salsa is the reason I purchased my food processor. I love homemade salsa! I always fill up on chips and salsa when we eat out at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurants. I created this recipe after experimenting a bit and now it's just perfect. I make it often and it keeps well in the refrigerator for a week.
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 T yellow onion
1 can rotel tomatoes with green chilis, drained
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed
In a food processor, add diced jalapeno and onions and pulse a few times. Add both cans of drained tomatoes and process until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process again until combined, leaving cilantro with some texture. Taste and adjust seasoning. If the salsa is too spicy, add a little honey. Pour into bowl and refrigerate for at least two hours so the flavors can marry. Serve with chips, tortillas, or with your favorite Tex-Mex meals. Enjoy!
