Fresh salsa is something that tastes so good and really makes simple tacos something extra special - but I hate chopping everything - that is why this recipe is perfect.  You just throw everything in your food processor and its done - with minimal effort and maximum taste.  


  • 2 fresh jalapeno peppers, ribs and seeds removed - chopped in half
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion, chopped in quarters
  • 2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped in quarters
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes (drained)
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • juice of one lime
1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the jalapenos, garlic and onion.  Process until finely chopped.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
2. Add all other ingredients to the food processor.  Pulse in very brief pulses until the vegetables have reached the size you desire.
3. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
