  • 1 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers
  • juice from 1/2 of a lime
  • 1 handfull of fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 clove mined garlic
  • couple dashes salt

Step 1

The above ingredients are not set in stone. Add peppers, onions, chipotles, dried chilies, fruit, etc. to make more interesting variations. Measurements aren't exact either, everything is added to taste. You can use fresh tomatoes if they're in season and you're willing to chop them up, but canned tomatoes give good results in my experience. Drain the the juice from the tomatoes and add them to a bowl.


Step 2

Mix the garlic, cumin, paprika, and salt in with the tomatoes.


Step 3

Roughly chop the cilantro and add it to the salsa.


Step 4

Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the salsa. Mix it all together. Taste test the salsa and add more ingredients as you see fit. Refrigerate the salsa for about an hour to let the flavors mingle.
