Ingredients

  • 1 can (28 oz) whole peeled tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 small onion roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno roughly chopped, discard seeds and white membrane for less spice, or use half of jalapeno for less spice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients onto a blender, food processor or anything that has the pulse/chop function on it.
  • Press the pulse/chop button for 1 second, use a spatula to scrape down the ingredients, then pusle/chop again for 1 second. Repeat this until you reach your desired salsa consistencey. 
  • Taste and season with more salt or sugar, if needed. Serve right away or store in the fridge until you need it. This salsa keeps for several days in the fridge. 

Notes

Use any type of onion you want. I prefer the sweet onion but you can use a white onion, yellow onion, or red onion. 
The cilantro leaves just need to be loosely packed into the 1 cup measurer. No need to chop them or anything. 1 cilantro bunch will be plenty for the 1 cup needed. 
DO NOT DRAIN the tomatoes. Just dump in the entire can. Juice and all. 
If you want more spice then add the seeds of the jalapeno into the salsa. You can also add some hot sauce or an additional jalapeno pepper. The recipe as written is not spicy at all but it is very flavorful with mild spice.
