So I guess you are wanting my recipe HUH? I have to give my friend Stephanie all the credit for this recipe. We had a Ladies Ministry gathering at our church at least 10 yrs ago where they had tables set up around our gym and ladies were demonstrating simple recipes and crafts. You just walked from table to table watching their demonstrations and able to take the ideas/recipes/crafts home with you. When I was pregnant with my oldest (who is almost 10), this is what I craved. Weird I know but it at least it was healthy. This is also a recipe that the kids can help with. The boys helped me make some the other day as you will see in the pics. One serving fills up 2 1/2 of the salsa jars you can get at the store (or approx a quart). I periodically buy pre-made salsa then keep the jars that it comes in and just store the homemade in those.
So here it is...
1/2 onion chopped
1 jalapeno (seeded and rib cut out for mild or leave in for medium/hot)
3 garlic cloves minced
5-10 cilantro leaves
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp sugar
1 large can whole tomatoes
Pulse everything in a food processor EXCEPT for the tomatoes a couple of times then add the tomatoes and continue pulsing til you get it the consistency you want. Store in container or jar and keep refrigerated.
