  • 6 medium size tomatoes (Roma work well), chopped
  • 1/2 red onion , or sweet onion
  • 3-4 fresh jalapeƱo peppers , I leave 1 with seeds and the rest without seeds, for a medium spice salsa, or use 1-2 peppers and remove all seeds and veins for mild salsa
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Sea salt
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor.

  2. Pulse about 5-10 times, or just until the ingredients are finely diced, but stop before they're soupy.

  3. Pour contents into a fine mesh strainer to remove excess liquid. 

  4. For best flavor, refrigerate at least 2-3 hours before serving

  5. Keeps in the fridge for up to 1 week.
