Ingredients

  • 56 ounces (2 cans) whole, peeled tomatoes drained (I prefer San Marzanos)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves rough chopped
  • ½ medium white onion rough chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers seeds, stem & membranes removed
  • 1 clove garlic skin removed
  • teaspoons kosher salt or coarse sea salt if using table salt, use ½ teaspoon
  • Juice from 2½ limes
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until you get the desired consistency (12-18 pulses should do).
  • Taste test and season to taste
  • Place the salsa in an airtight container and refrigerate. The salsa is best after one hour of refrigeration and gets even better after 24 hours.
  • The salsa will keep up to 7 days, refrigerated.
  • Enjoy!
