I have been on a quest to make the best salsa ever! My favorite salsa is the kind when you are eating in a restaurant and it is just the perfect blend of flavors. It has taken a while and I have tried many different recipes and most have been good. Not great, but edible. So while on my internet search I found this recipe from Pioneer Woman. And I have found it....the BEST salsa ever! It tastes as good or better than the stuff served in restaurants. :)
Restaurant Style Salsa
1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
1/4 cup Chopped Onion
1 clove Garlic, Minced
1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/2 cup Cilantro (more To Taste!)
1/2 whole Lime Juice
Note: this is a very large batch. I recommend using a 12-cup food processor, or you can process the ingredients in batches and then mix everything together in a large mixing bowl.
Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you'd like. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour. Serve with tortilla chips or cheese nachos.
So incredibly tasty...it will be gone very quickly!!!
