My favorite easy salsa recipe
No chips? Just use saltines!
And ever since my college roommate gave me an easy salsa recipe, that has been my go-to method for 20 years. I make it several times a year whether I buy canned tomatoes or use my garden ones. You can make it with yellow or even green tomatoes!
It reminds me of restaurant style.
Roommate Chari's salsa recipe
2 cans whole tomatoes (mostly drained, though I save the liquid and freeze it for soups)
1 can diced green chiles
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 Tbsp dried cilantro or 40 to 60 fresh cilantro leaves (about a 1/3 to 1/2 a bunch)
1/2 to 2/3 small onion
Salt and pepper to taste
A splash of lemon juice
* If you want spicy, add a fresh jalapeno or a couple Tbsp of jarred, or if you're really adventurous a little bit of habanero.
Blend in blender or food processor until desired consistency.
