Taco Truck Red Salsa

As a child growing up in Western N.Y., I was only exposed to salsa in a jar to put on my ground beef tacos. I didn't know any better until I moved to California where my life as a salsa critic was changed forever. Once you have tried home made salsa, you'll balk at the suggestion of store bought salsa in a jar !


prep time: 10 minutes


One 10-ounce cans diced tomatoes and green chiles

One 14.5-ounce can whole tomatoes with juice, drained 

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 whole jalapeno, quartered and sliced thin, with seeds and membrane removed

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/2 whole lime, juiced

Fresh Ground Pepper

Combine the diced tomatoes, whole tomatoes, cilantro, onions, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, salt, sugar and lime juice in a blender or food processor.

Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you'd like.

Refrigerate the salsa before serving.
