Super Easy Salsa

 

2 14 ounce cans fire-roasted canned tomatoes puréed

½ cup roasted red pepper (jarred), packed

1 can green chiles

½ small red onion, roughly chopped

½ cup fresh cilantro (leaves and stems), packed

6 medium green (spring) onions, cut in two inch pieces

3 medium cloves garlic, peeled

1-2 small jalapeño, seeded (if you like a spicier flavor, leaves the seeds in)

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

 

Drain the tomatoes, reserving the juice.

 

Combine all ingredients except reserved tomato juice in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse on and off until all ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. We like it a bit chunky, but if you like a smoother salsa, just keep pulsing. If you like a thinner salsa, add a small amount of the reserved tomato juice and pulse one more time.

 

Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Serve with chips, tacos or other Mexican entrees, as a baked potato or omelet topping, soup garnish, etc.
