14 1⁄2 ounces can diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons canned diced jalapenos
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄2 cup diced white onions or 1⁄2 cup yellow onion
Combine diced tomatoes, jalapenos, lime juice and spices in a food processor (or blender). Run food processor on high speed for just a few moments until the tomoatoes have been nearly pureed, yet still chunky. The jalapenos should be chopped into visible minced bits. Be careful not to over-process.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the sliced onion. Stir well, cover and store overnight for the flavors to properly develop.
I was amazed at how good this was, considering it was made with canned tomatoes. It tastes very fresh and remarkably like the Chili's restaurant salsa. I used the mild canned green chilis, and an extra tablespoon, and instead of a food processor, I used an immersion blender, and blended it with the onions in, as I wanted them a bit smaller. DH and I haven't been happy with any purchased salsas lately, and I think this will be our new go to salsa.
We make a similar version here, though I used a fresh jalapeno, a large can of whole tomatoes, and two cans of diced tomatoes (it makes a lot - DD9 is a salsa fiend!) Surprisingly the canned tomatoes make a good salsa.
