Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 2½ cups
  • 3 cups tomatoes, diced, seeded, divided
  • 2 clove garlic, chopped small
  • ½ cup red onion, diced small
  • 3 serrano peppers, seeded, chopped small
  • 1 tbsp cilantro (Use more if you'd like)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp, ground pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  1. In a blender add 1 cup tomatoes, garlic, serrano peppers and cilantro; blend until everything is incorporated.
  2. Pour salsa into a bowl, and stir in remaining 2 cups tomato, salt, pepper, and cumin; mix until well combined. Add mixture back into a blender and process until tomatoes broke down, but still chunky. I did this for about 10 seconds on low speed.
  3. Pour into a serving bowl, refrigerated until ready to serve.
  4. Will keep for about 5 days.
To leave chunky, do not blend for a second time in blender.
