A super easy, super fresh, super delicious salsa. You'll never need another salsa recipe again! This has been my go-to recipe for years, it's definitely a family favorite. We make it almost every week. It's a staple recipe.
Ready in: 5minutes
1 1/4lbsripe Roma tomatoes*(about 5 - 6)
1(14.5 oz) canpetite diced tomatoes**
2green onions,***ends trimmed, chopped into thirds
1/3cupchopped red onion(about 1/4 of a medium)
1jalapeno pepper,****seeded and roughly chopped
1/3cupfresh cilantro(about a handful)
1large clove garlic,roughly chopped
2Tbspfresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse in 1 second bursts until all ingredients are finely chopped.
Serve with tortilla chips. Note that salsa always tastes best after it's been refrigerated for a few hours, so if time allows let the flavors marinate together before serving.
Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.
*Use best quality tomatoes or salsa will be lacking in flavor.
**Canned diced tomatoes with mild green chilis, or canned fire roasted tomatoes also work great as well.
***For a slightly stronger onion flavor you can just omit green onions and use about 3/4 cup red onion (or 1/2 of a medium onion).
****You can leave the seeds or use a serrano pepper for a spicy salsa. Sometimes I like to substitute a few canned chipotle peppers with some adobo sauce for the jalapeno. This is also a spicier option.
Another tasty addition is to include 1/2 bell pepper, or 1 poblano or Anaheim pepper.
For a thinner salsa, you can add in a bit of tomato juice or tomato sauce if desired.
