I have never made my own salsa before. There are so many great jarred varieties out there that I never really thought about it. I have made my own pico de gallo before, but it is different than a salsa. So now that I decided it was time, I looked up some recipes online, got inspired, and made my own. You can adjust the heat level to your specific taste. I made this version at a medium heat level.
- 1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
- 1 14.5 oz can diced petite tomatoes
- 2 jalapenos, 1 deseeded
- 3 garlic cloves (preferably minced)
- 1/4 of a red onion, diced
- 1 handful cilantro
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- dash of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
- pinch of sugar
***All of these ingredients can be adjusted to taste
In a food processor or mini chopper combine all ingredients (I had to do it in two batches in my mini food processor). Pulse for a minute then let stay on for another 30 seconds. Refrigerate for an hour to let flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips.
