Chris's Salsa

Chris sent me this recipe the other day - and it is really good - and cheap! I am attempting to freeze the extra since I have all those extra jars from jam making - hopefully it freezes well and I will have salsa for weeks ...

1 medium size can tomatoes

1 bunch cilantro

3-4 cloves garlic

1 jalapeno ( or more )

1/4 - 1/2 yellow onion (I'll have to ask him why yellow and not white)

1/2 - 1 small lime (I cheated and used lemon, but it was ok)

Salt - not very much, a pinch

Black pepper - a few healthy shakes ( I used a spicy pepper blend about .5 tsp)

Cumin - about 1 tsp or more

Chris said he has been known to add a bit of red wine vinegar, but usually doesn't - so I guess it's optional

Just add it all to a blender at once and blend to the consistency you like ...

The only change I would make is maybe not to add all the juice from the tomatoes (maybe these were just really watery tomatoes though), but I agree with Chris - one jalapeno isn't hot enough ...

And I should've bought some chips to go with it ...
