Restaurant style salsa

I have a new favorite blog that I am hooked onto these days. It is the pioneer woman’s blog. I have seen her shows on Food network and love her cool and composed personality. Her blog is full of stories of life in a ranch, her family, their travels and such. Makes for an interesting read.

Anyway, I came upon this salsa recipe from her blog and it is the easiest, yummiest recipe ever! oh and it tastes just like how they make it in a restaurant!

Without any further ado, here it is


1 can whole tomatoes(I used hunt’s)

1 jalapeno chopped

1 sweet onion, finely chopped

1 cup cilantro, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

juice of half a lime

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon cumin powder

Empty the contents of the can into a blender. Add rest of the ingredients and pulse. If you want chunky salsa, pulse only once. Be careful not to pulse too many times either, or you’ll end up with tomato sauce.

You can also add some canned tomato chunks if you like it more chunky. Enjoy with some tortilla chips.

I personally like it better if it has been refrigerated.

Note: if you can’t take the heat, De-seed the jalapeno before adding it to the blender.

If you can’t find canned tomatoes where you live, you can make pico de gallo with fresh tomatoes
