"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Tammy Giesick

2 tablespoons diced jalapenos (from a can) OR 1 medium fresh jalapeno, stem removed and halved

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 (14.5 ounce) can Hunt's fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic

1/2 fresh lime, juiced

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro

Add onion, jalapeno and garlic to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the bits are your desired size, about 5 or 6 times. Open cover, scrape down sides. Add remaining ingredients, pulse 1 or 2 times to combine.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Salsa keeps fresh in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

MILD SALSA: remove the veins and seeds from the jalapeno

UTTERLY MILD SALSA: use 2 tablespoons green chiles

MEDIUM SALSA: Prepare as written

HOT SALSA: Use 2 jalapenos, veins and seeds included

The canned diced jalapenos are packed with citric acid NOT vinegar. Add about 2 tablespoons (canned jalapenos) per 1 fresh jalapeno with seeds and veins (called for in the recipe) . If you want medium-mild, start with 1 tablespoon.
