Simply Delicious Homemade Salsa


This is a great salsa recipe because it is simple to make and tastes just like the salsa you can get at your favorite Mexican restaurant! Serve with some homemade guacamole and chips and you have an amazing appetizer that everyone will love. Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1- 10 oz can original Ro*tel
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1-4 oz can diced green chiles
1/2-4 oz can diced jalapenos (adjust to liking)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime


Directions:

Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor and pulse to combine until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with homemade tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Additional recipe idea: Make a double batch and use the extra for Shredded Mexican Chicken by heating up two teaspoons of olive oil in a nonstick pan. Add the meat from one rotisserie chicken that has been shredded. Cook until browned and a little crispy on the edges. Add salsa and cook down until most of liquid is absorbed. Serve with warmed corn tortillas, sour cream, lettuce, and diced tomatoes.. Quick and easy deliciousness!
