3 cloves garlic
1 medium red onion
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp pepper
juice of 1 lime
9 roma tomatoes, cut into quarters and seeds removed (It’s iimportant to remove the seeds or your salsa will end up having too much liquid)
1/2 bunch of cilantro, washed, patted dry and removed from stems
Optional but recommended: 1/2 a jalapeño, sliced lengthwise, seeded and chopped finely (use gloves when working with hot peppers!) You can adjust the amount depending on your taste.
To whip this salsa up super fast, I like to use my food processor but if you prefer you can also chop everything by hand. Either way is fine!
To make using a food processor:
- Add garlic to the processor and pulse a couple times to chop finely.
- Add red onion and pulse a couple times until you have small pieces, but not pureed. You want little chunks.
- Add cilantro, salt, pepper, cumin, lime juice and jalapeño. Pulse a couple times until the cilantro is chopped up fine with the rest of the ingredients.
- Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the food processor. Add the tomatoes and pulse 4-5 times until they are roughly chopped and in chunks. You may have to open up the processor and move the tomatoes around a bit to make sure they all get evenly chopped. Don’t overdo the pulsing though or you will end up with a sauce… which is ok if that’s what you’re going for… but today we’re making salsa! 😁❤️
- Pour the contents of the processor into an airtight container and allow to chill for at least 20 min. This gives the ingredients a chance to combine and give you the ultimate deliciousness!
- Serve with tortilla chips, in tacos, burritos or anything else you might enjoy!
To make Without a food processor: Chop ingredients and combine everything. Basically do everything the same order as outlined above, but by hand. 🙂
