Restaurant Style Salsa

Ok, I have to admit here, I am loving spicy lately. If you have read my Tummy Tracker updates, you have seen this! Ha! I also lurve Pioneer Woman and her recipes. This is her salsa recipe that I have wanted to try for some time, and I am so glad I did! I channeled my inner Ree with my picture taking! I love the salsa at our local mexican restaurant and always want to take a bottle home, but....I can't. Or...maybe.....nah! This is identical and EASY!

I pulled out my favorite cookbook.

And gathered ingredients.

I do not have a food processor, so I used my Ninja Master Prep Blender (which I LOVE) and made salsa in two batches.  The first batch was the whole tomatoes.  I pulsed them 3 times and it was the perfect consistency. Next I pulsed remainder of the ingredients and then stirred together.

Mix together and Kaboom! You have delish, yummy salsa that tastes JUST like what you get at the local mexican restaurant. Yummo! Refrigerate of a few hours to let flavors mix together well. :)

Restaurant Style Salsa by the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond:

1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes with juice
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped onion (the absolute perfect amount)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 whole jalapeno quartered and sliced thin. If you like hot, use seeds and all
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro (or more :)
1/2 whole lime juice (I used 1 Tablespoon bottled lime juice)

Combine all ingredients in food processor or in batches in blender. Pulse until you get desired consistency, taste...twice, or three times, and run and yell to your kids that this is the best salsa ever! Take a pic on your phone and text it to your husband to let him know what he's missing at home! Adjust flavors as needed. I thought the recipe was perfect as written!

Yummy, Yummy!
