  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: about 2 cups 1x


  • 56 Roma tomatoes, quartered with tough, white core parts removed (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 small onion (about 1/2 cup), cut in have with root end removed
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced or chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, cut in half and seeded
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, washed and roughly torned
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Optional: Red pepper flakes, hot sauce, extra garlic or cilantro


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until ingredients are finely chopped and well combined. Season with additional salt and lime juice, if needed.
  2. If your tomatoes are really juicy, you can drain off the excess liquid for a chunkier, thicker salsa being sure to squeeze a little extra lime juice over top to ensure a zesty taste.
