I learned this about this trick from my friends, the Kiefer's. The trick is the tomatoes- makes it super simple and still tastes delicious. The exception is...summertime fresh tomatoes, it is worth chopping up fresh tomatoes.
Salsa is a staple at my house and there is nothing better than fresh cilantro!
3 --cans PETITE chopped tomatoes (I use Kroger brand)
¼- ½ c --cilantro, chopped
2 ½ T-- jalapeno pepper, finely diced (leave seeds in if you want spicier salsa)
½ --sweet or red onion, finely chopped
1-2 --Sweet bell peppers (optional
½ T-- salt (continue to add to taste)
2 T-- fresh lime juice
Optional spices (cumin, chili powder, Garlic salt or power)
Hand chop or use a food processor and chop up everything except cilantro.
