Poor Man’s Homemade Salsa

Now I just love salsa, and so does my wife.  I figured since we are having Mexican night on Monday, I would make some fresh salsa to go with it instead of buying some crappy store bought salsa poop.

The first thing that you need to do is to get all of  your ingredients together if you want to make salsa ninja style.

Next you want to quarter your onion.  Then slice your jalapeno in half and remove the seeds.

My secret part to this ninjastastic recipe is to broil the jalapeno and onion under the broiler for about 15 minutes.  You want to keep an eye on your vegetables to make sure they don’t get too dark.  Once you like the look, remove them from the oven.

Combine whole tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno, garlic, sugar, salt, cumin, lime juice, and cilantro in a blender or food processor.  Pulse that thing till the salsa is fit for a ninja.  About 15 to 20 pulses should do the trick.

It should look like this when you are done.

Put it in the fridge and let it get ninja happy for a few hours before serving.
