Taco Tuesdays are legendary in my house. In fact my kids will stage a coup if I neglect to live up to it. Living in California, especially so close to southern California, Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen. You can find one on every corner and if that's not enough, there are taco trucks too. Normally I will pick up a container of salsa from Burrito Loco. There's is good. Not too spicy and not too bland. But yesterday I was inspired to make my own. It cant that hard. The hole town is doing it after all!

It was AMAZING! Never again will I ever buy it. So easy to make. Took minutes. I did it in the morning. I hear it is better after it sits for a while.

So here is my recipe. You will notice that the amounts are not precise. You may need another jalapeño or more salt. So make sure you have a spoon ready for lots of tasting (I mean you have to taste the product....mmmm where are those chips?)


I large can of peel tomatoes
1-2 jalapeños seeded and roughly chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic (I used 2 because they were small)
1/2 onion roughly chopped
handful cilantro
1 tsp kosher salt
juice of one lime

throw it all in the food processor until mixed well
