  • 15 ounces canned whole peeled tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons diced canned jalapeno
  • 1/2 large onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro optional


  • Add everything to a blender or food processor and process until mostly smooth.
  • Taste and add additional salt or lime juice as desired. Add additional jalapeno as desired, keeping in mind that the salsa will get spicier the longer it sits.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.



Fresh or bottled lime juice will work here, but we do prefer fresh.
The salsa will get spicier the longer it sits in the fridge.
