I was so excited to use the new food processor Stew got me for my birthday, and the first thing I thought to make was homemade salsa! So I quickly found a recipe (here) and we were really pleased with how it turned out! Here it is!
2 jalepeño peppers, seeded
1/2 sweet yellow onion, coarsely chopped
1 small clove of garlic (or more to taste)
2 vine-ripened tomatoes
1 14.5-oz can diced tomatoes, drained
1 14.5-oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained (reserve some juice)
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup fresh cilanto
Juice of one lime
In the bowl of a food processor (or blender), combine the jalepeños and garlic. Process until finely chopped (or if you want to make a finer salsa you can just combine everything at once).
Add all other ingredients to the food processor. Pulse in very brief pulses until the vegetables have reached the size you desire. Add reserved juice from fire-roasted tomatoes if needed to achieve desired consistency.
*Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate at least two hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.
