This salsa is so good and it tastes just like the salsa that you get at authentic Mexican restaurants served with tortilla chips. It is full of fresh flavors; it consists of canned whole tomatoes, rotel (tomatoes and chiles), fresh onion, garlic, jalapeno, and cilantro, fresh lime juice, salt, pepper, and cumin. It also couldn't be easier to make! All you do is throw everything into a food processor and pulse until your desired consistency; you can make it as chunky or as smooth as you like. Enjoy.
Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa: (Brown Eyed Baker)
Yield: About 6 cups
- 28-ounce can whole tomatoes (peeled) with juice
- 2 10-ounce cans Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, quartered and sliced thin
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- Juice from 1/2 a fresh lime
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Add all ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until you get desired consistency. Refrigerate for at least one hour, and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
*Notes*: This makes a large quantity so use at least an 11-cup food processor, or work in batches. If you prefer a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membrane from the jalapeno before adding it to the food processor.
