  • 1 15 Ounce Can Whole Peeled Tomatoes
  • 1 15 Ounce Can Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion Peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1/4 Cup Cilantro
  • 1 Medium Jalapeno* Stem removed and seeded if desired
  • 1-2 teaspoon Hot Sauce*
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cumin
  • Juice 1 Large Lime


  • Add both cans of tomatoes to a blender or food processor.
  • Top with the onion, cilantro, jalapeno, hot sauce, garlic, salt, cumin, and squeeze in the lime juice.
  • Place the lid securely on your blender and pulse the salsa on low speed until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve with your favorite chips.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.



*NOTE:  If you are sensitive to heat and want a mild salsa, remove the seeds from your jalapeno first.  If you like your salsa a little spicy, simply cut the stem from the jalapeno and add it in whole.
*NOTE:  I use Cholula brand hot sauce for this recipe, and it adds great flavor and isn't too spicy!  You can use any hot sauce that you prefer.
