CHILI'S COPYCAT SALSA


This recipe does taste very similar to Chili's restaurant salsa.  It is a very minimalist salsa with few ingredients and surprising mild for containing so many jalapenos.  The lime juice in it gives it a fresh zing when combines with the tomatoes and compliments spicy dishes.  It is also quick and easy - takes around 5 minutes.

Makes 6-8 servings  - original recipe Read more: here 
  • 1 can (14 1/2-15 oz) diced canned tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons diced jalapenos (I used 2 fresh jalapenos)
  • 1 TBSP lime juice 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced - I used 1 small onion

    Chop the jalapenos in half, remove the seeds and dice.
    Peel onion and dice into pieces.

    I used the juice of half of a lime, but you could use bottled lime juice.







    Put the above ingredients in a food processor along with the salt and cumin, then open the can of tomatoes.










    Run on high speed until pureed,  but still a little chunky (around 1 minute).

    Store any unused portion in a glass jar in the fridge for about a week.
