Homemade Salsa

Do you love Salsa???   I mean do you really love Salsa like we do????

Homemade Salsa

I could sit and eat a jar of salsa in one sitting, literally, I have to control myself and hide the chips and the jar, or find someone to share it with.

But, I don't really care for store bought salsa's, one look at the list of ingredients in the back and it makes me cringe, if I can't pronounce it why would I want to eat it???

Here's the homemade salsa I make, it's SO quick, SO simple and SO delicious.  You can adjust the heat, you can make mild by omitting the jalapenos OR make it hotter by adding more.  Totally up to you.

Homemade SalsaHomemade Salsa

1 (14.5 oz.) Can Tomatoes and Green Chilies, undrained
1 (14.5 oz.) Can Whole Peeled Tomatoes, undrained
1 Tbsp. Jalapenos (I use the canned type, you can even use the ones that are for nachos)
1/4 cup (half a medium) Onion, diced
1/2 Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/4 tsp. Sugar
Fresh Cilantro

In food processor place jalapenos and onions, both cans of tomatoes, salt, sugar, and cumin.  Process for a few seconds at a time, you don't want to puree it.  Add a few leaves of fresh cilantro, again, just go with how much you want in there or according to your family's taste.  We love cilantro so I add quite a bit.

Homemade Salsa

Process all ingredients until well blended but do not puree. Place in covered container and chill. A couple of hours of chilling will help blend and enrich the flavor.

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
