When it comes to raw tomatoes, I am so picky. I don't like those big chunks of tomatoes, don't know why? I have given them a try a few times, but no luck. When I cook too, I try to use as much tomato puree as I can wherever possible. I always used to buy salsa from the store as I kind a like the taste of it and also was hesitant to try at home as I am not a big fan of chunky raw tomatoes. Finally I decided to give it a try after researching the net that I can make it smooth instead of chunky. So my husband tries it and goes, “dang it is spicy” after a couple of bites he was like it is yummy…don't feel the heat anymore…
- 7-8 soft red tomatoes (or more)
- 1 jalapeño or to taste
- 1 red onion or white
- Large handful cilantro
- salt to taste
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 of a lime, juiced
- black pepper to taste
Wash and roughly cut all the ingredients and put it in the food processor. I used my blender instead.
Now pulse it about 8-9 times until desired consistency. If you think it is still chunky then you can do it a few more times.
Serve it with a bowl of tortilla chips, or top it off on your favorite mexican entree.
