Very easy and very good! I used a 14.5 oz. can of fire roasted tomatoes vs. the petite diced and added, 2 tsp. of cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp. of salt, and 1/2 tsp. of sugar. I must say that a bunch of fresh cilanto can be a bit subjective and in my opinion "overkill" so add it to suit your tastes. I only added a couple of Tbsp. chopped. I put everything into my mini food processor and let it go.... then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavors blend and it went great with warm tortilla chips!



This is called a blended salsa, not a salsa fresca with chunks. Some places do serve this style of salsa as opposed to the fresher kind. My teenagers and their friends love this style of salsa. Personally, I added more heat with fresh jalapeno peppers (sometimes canned works in a pinch) instead of pickled, and increased the garlic. Made the family happy! Thanks for a nice, basic blended salsa recipe!



We like this...with conditions. Cilantro is a very overpowering flavor, and an entire bunch of it...way too much. Other than that, I think this could be a really great salsa.
