Chips and Salsa

It's movie night every night with this amazing salsa recipe


  1. Fresh Roma tomatoes – use the nice and red ones, avoid anything soft.
  2. Canned tomatoes – I like to use canned in addition to fresh because it gives the salsa a better consistency.
  3. Fresh cilantro – cilantro adds key flavor, don’t omit this!
  4. Jalapeno – this adds a nice kick. If you don’t like heat you can replace it with 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper, or omit.
  5. Red onion – yellow onion can be used here as well.
  6. Green onion – if you don’t want to buy both kinds of onions you can omit the green onions and add just a little more red onion.
  7. Garlic – it may seem small but garlic packs a flavorful punch. Only use fresh garlic here for best flavor.
  8. Lime – this really brightens up the salsa.
  9. Chili powder and cumin – I don’t always add these but they’re a nice addition if you have them on hand.
  10. Sugar – just a touch balances out the acidity of the tomatoes and lime.
  11. Salt and pepper – the salsa would taste flat without the salt and the pepper adds a light kick.

Roughly chop the vegetables (and fruit if you want to get technical, those tomatoes). Add vegetables to a food processor along with spices and lime juice. Chop in quick bursts until it’s finely chopped up.
