Homemade Salsa

This is a recipe I got from my sister.  I love it because it is so easy and quick to throw together and delicious!!  I have not bought pre-made salsa in years!


1 can Diced Tomatoes, drained (my sister uses whole tomatoes, so really any type will work)
1 can Tomato Sauce
1 Onion, chopped
1 Jalapeno, chopped (you can leave the seeds in or out depending on how hot you like it)
Garlic Powder
Pinch of Sugar

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl fitted with a lid ~ you’ll need to use at least a 4 cup size bowl.
2. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least an hour to blend the flavors.
3. Blend all ingredients in a food processor.

If you noticed most everything does not have an exact amount to put in.  I just add as much or as little based on our preferences.  My husband loves cilantro so I add almost a whole bunch to ours.  I love garlic so ours is also extra garlic-y 🙂 
The only thing I would recommend is using plain tomatoes, not any of the seasoned ones.  I tried making it once with the Tomatoes with Onion & Garlic and it just had an odd taste after I added in my own garlic and onions.
