Restaurant Style Salsa

Jana here with a salsa recipe that is a great addition to any Mexican meal!  I have made many different homemade salsas, but this is by far my favorite. It has a similar texture and taste as the ones they serve at our local Mexican restaurants. It is just spicy enough, but not overwhelmingly so. I got inspiration for this from the Pioneer Woman's cookbook.

Restaurant Style Salsa 

1 can whole tomatoes (with juice) or 1 quart canned garden tomatoes
2 cans (10 ounce) Rotel
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
*one jalapeno finely chopped if you prefer more heat

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse 5-10 times until you get the desired consistency. If the salsa looks too runny, I put it through a fine strainer to get some of the excess liquid out. Adjust seasonings as needed.  Refrigerate for at least an hour.
