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 ...
