Homemade Salsa

Recipe from The Pioneer Woman.

1 can (28oz) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
2 cans Rotel (I used one hot and one mild)
¼ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 whole jalapeno, diced (remove seeds, or most of them)
¼ teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
½ cup cilantro (or to taste)
juice from 1/2 a lime

Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor. Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you’d like. Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour. Serve with tortilla chips.
I recommend making this in two batches unless you have a 14-cup food processor. I used my 9-cup and it was a tight fit and some juice came out. Has a good kick to it without your mouth being on fire for minutes afterwards.
