1 can (28 oz) whole peeled tomatoes
3 large garlic cloves
1 - 2 jalapeños*
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/2 small red onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (stems removed)
*Note: For an extra kick of spice, you can adjust the quantity of jalapeños and include the seeds for added heat.
1. Prepare the Ingredients: Start by draining the canned tomatoes and roughly chopping the garlic cloves, jalapeños, and red onion.
2. Blend the Ingredients: In a high-powered blender, combine the drained tomatoes, chopped garlic cloves, jalapeños (adjust quantity based on desired spice level), sea salt, lime juice, red onion, and cilantro.
3. Blend to Desired Consistency: Blend on low to medium speed for about one minute. For a chunkier salsa, keep the blender on low. If you prefer a slightly smoother texture, increase the speed to medium for about 30 seconds. Be mindful not to over-blend, as you want to maintain some texture.
4. Chill the Salsa: Transfer the salsa from the blender to an airtight container and refrigerate overnight before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together for a more vibrant and zesty salsa.
