Quick Homemade Salsa

Speaking of fantastic recipes from the Pioneer Woman, I stumbled across her recipe for Restaurant-Style Salsa this past spring.  This was one of the very first recipes I ever tried from her site.  I was hooked immediately by the fact that it was quick, with easily accessible ingredients and almost no prep time. Be sure to check out the original recipe for gorgeous photos of the process!

As usual, I tweaked the recipe to suit my family.  My version below has less of a kick because my toddler still has a low tolerance for spiciness.  (Oh, how I miss cooking spicy food.)  We also enjoy a little extra lime and garlic in ours.  The recipe is very adaptable, so run wild and free with it!


Quick Homemade Salsa
(makes a lot!)

1 can whole tomatoes, 28-oz. (Muir Glen, if you can find it!)
1 can diced green chiles, 10-oz.
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime

Toss all of it in your blender or food processor.  Pulse together until all ingredients are chopped as finely as you would wish and mixed together well.  Enjoy!
