Restaurant Style Salsa
Restaurant Style Salsa ~ easy, 5 minute restaurant style salsa made in the blender from canned tomatoes.
- 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 10 ounce can Rotel tomatoes see post which Rotel tomatoes for proper heat level.
- 3/4 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 cloves garlic grated
- 1/2 to 1 lime juiced
- 1/2 medium onion rough chopped
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon honey
Drain the juice from the tomatoes into a bowl then reserve the juice. Depending on preference, you may add some of the juice later.
Add the cans of diced and Rotel tomatoes to a blender then add the remaining ingredients starting with the minimum amounts of lime juice and sea salt shown in the recipe. NOTE: cilantro leaves and stems can be left whole, but give the onion a rough chop and grate the garlic.
Pulse until you reach your desired consistency. If the salsa is still too thick, slowly add the reserved juice from the canned tomatoes a couple of tablespoons at a time.
Taste the salsa on a salted tortilla chip then adjust salt and lime juice to your preferences (I usually use the whole lime). Serve with tortilla chips or on top of your favorite Mexican dishes.
