  • 1 (15 oz) can tomatoes and green chiles, Rotel
  • 1 (15 oz) can whole peeled tomatoes, don't drain juices
  • 1/2 jalapeno, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 yellow onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar


  • This is easiest in a food processor but you can use a blender too.
  • Place jalapeno and onion into food processor.
  • Process it for a few seconds.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients and process all ingredients for just a few more seconds, keeping it slightly chunky (not a puree).
  • Put into a bowl with a lid (I like to use my mason jars) and chill in the fridge for several hours (overnight is even better).



This is a salsa that just gets better over time. After a few hours, the flavors really blend and the flavor is enhanced. Also, add fresh cilantro if you enjoy the taste!
