Homemade Salsa

I like to make my own salsa – it tastes so much fresher and more like something you’d find at a Mexican restaurant.  The store bought brands tend to taste too tomato saucy for my taste.  So here’s my recipe (adapted from Pioneer Woman’s original recipe).

Homemade Salsa

1 can of whole tomatoes

1 can of Rotel tomatoes (I use MILD) *drained of all liquid*

1/4 yellow onion, finely chopped

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/4 tsp coconut sugar

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp cumin

1/2 – 1 tsp lime juice (depending on your preference)

Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel (drained), onion, garlic, coconut sugar, salt, cumin, & lime juice in a blender or food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you’d like—I do about 10 to 15 pulses. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.

Enjoy!
