This super simple salsa can be made in a pinch with a can of diced tomatoes, some canned jalapeños, fresh lime juice, onion, spices, and a food processor or blender. Plus you can easily double the recipe by sending in a larger 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes, and simply doubling up on all the other ingredients. Use this versatile salsa as a dip for tortilla chips or plop it down onto any dish that needs flavor assistance—from eggs to taco salads to wraps to fish. You can adjust the heat level to suit your taste by tweaking the amount of canned jalapeños in the mix.

    • Instructions

      1. Combine diced tomatoes, jalapeños, lime juice, and spices in a food processor (or a blender). Run it at high speed for just a few moments until the tomatoes have been nearly pureed, yet are still a little chunky. The jalapeños should be chopped into visible minced bits. Be careful not to over-process.

      2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the diced onion. Stir well, cover and store overnight for the flavors to properly develop.

      Makes 2 cups.
