Canned tomato salsa

I confess, I've never made canned tomato salsa before. Because that would be gross, right?

Actually, not. After looking at the ingredients on a tub of so-called "fresh" salsa, I was appalled enough to decide to make my own fresh salsa--albeit with canned tomatoes, as we all know you can't get decent fresh tomatoes this time of year.

It turned out really well. Plus, you can just dump everything in the food processor, so it took even less time to throw together than fresh salsa.

1 28oz can whole tomatoes, with juice
3/4 roughly chopped onion
1 cup cilantro
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 cloves garlic
2-3 jalapenos
1 teaspoon pepper
Juice of 1 lime

Throw everything into a food processor and pulse until well-blended. Let stand for a bit to let the flavors meld.

  1. Awesome! My husband LOVES salsa but I hate making it. Plus, tomatoes are expensive and not so delicious in January.
