  • 6 roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 2 jalapenos seeded and skinned
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • kosher or sea salt to taste


Method 1:

  • Add all the above ingredients to a food processor and pulse 2 to 3 times or until ingredients are a chunky consistency. Store salsa in a glass container with lid and refrigerate for 8 hours allowing the flavors time to marry.

Method 2:

  • Add all diced ingredients to a slow-cooker, cover and cook on low 3 hours. Allow salsa to cool at room temperature and store in a glass container with lid...refrigerate until ready to use. This method is more like the commercial version or restaurant-style.
