  • 28 ounce canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro about 1 cup packed
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 jalapeno deseeded
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice or to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add the undrained canned diced tomatoes, sweet onion, Roma tomatoes, garlic, jalapeno, and cilantro to the food processor and pulse it a few times until the salsa is chunky but well mixed.
  • Season the salsa with the lime juice and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Cut the stem end off the tomatoes before adding them to the food processor.
  • Don't overmix the salsa! You want it still to be a bit chunky, not liquified.
  • Like your salsa spicier? Use a serrano chili instead of a jalapeno.
