Homemade Salsa

From: Here

1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
1 10-oz can original Rotel
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed (I used minced)
1/2 - 1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro
juice of 1 lime

Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.

Okay, you are SO lucky that I remembered to take a picture before this was all gone. Whew. You can't imagine the process I have gone through for my entire marriage, trying to find the perfect salsa for my husband. He loves the salsa in restaurants but I cannot find a store-purchased salsa that fits that style for him. Not even the "restaurant-style salsa" you can find in the store. So when I saw this recipe I had to try it. It looked great and looked like the perfect consistency. I would highly recommend this salsa. Now, we did both agree that it doesn't need an entire lime in it. I think I could tweak this a little the next time - perhaps just a tad more cilantro and leave some jalapeno seeds in to make it just a tiny bit hotter, and maybe just a half of a lime. I will say this, even without those tweaks, our family ate an entire bag of chips with this salsa right after I made it!
