Homemade Salsa

Homemade Salsa
Yield: 12 cups

2 cans of whole peeled tomatoes (28oz cans each)
2 cans of diced tomatoes (15 oz cans each)
4 roma tomatoes, diced
2 medium onions or 1 1/2 large onions, diced
2 cups of chopped cilantro
1 cup of chopped green onions
1 whole head of garlic, minced (aprox. 14 cloves)
3 shallot cloves, minced
4 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper
1-2 jalapenos (depending on your heat preference)

1. Finely chop your onions, green onions, cilantro, and tomatoes. 
2. Mince your garlic, shallots, and jalapenos (if you decide to add jalapenos).
3. In your food processor, add your canned tomatoes, dashes of salt and pepper, lemon juice, and add half of everything that is on your cutting board (half your tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro, green onions, shallots, and jalapenos, etc). Blend in your mixer for 10-12 seconds.
4. In a large container add the remaining ingredients, that are on your cutting board, and then pour the salsa mixture, from your food processor, over the fresh ingredients. Stir well and store in your fridge for up to three days.

Enjoy your fresh and homemade salsa with some homemade corn chips! Here is my recipe for corn chips and guacamole. I make salsa, guacamole  and chips every couple of weeks. It is a staple in our house: healthy and yummy! Have a great night! :)
