Also I must point out that you can control the heat level with this recipe. I use 2 cans of Hot Rotel tomatoes because I like a little heat and the 2 cans are just the perfect amount for my taste BUT if you prefer it milder you could use 1 can Hot and 1 can Mild, or 2 Original....you get the idea, mix it up and make it your Go-To-Salsa!!
1 can (28oz) whole tomatoes
2 cans Rotel tomatoes (your choice on heat level)
1/2 onion coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
the juice of 1/2 lemon or lime (this too is a matter of preference)
** before you start....this will make a lot of salsa! If you don't have a large food processor (12 cup capacity) or blender you will have to work in batches and then stir the batches together in a bowl**
In your food processor or blender add the onion and jalapeño first then top with your tomatoes. **do not drain the tomatoes of their juice** Add sugar, salt, cumin and juice. Pulse until the salsa is to your preference of consistency (I pulse until all my tomatoes are broken up, I do not like chunky salsa)
Salsa is ready to eat as soon as you are done pulsing and mixing the ingredients together. Store leftovers in the refrigerator, will keep well for about 1 week. Stir before serving after chilling. ENJOY :-)
