So, I dug up an old recipe I'd relied on to fulfill my salsa needs when we last inhabited the salsa-challenged northern region, ran it through the food processor, and proceeded to eat about 300 tortilla chips "testing it out". While not fancy, it's certainly better than chunky ketchup. So I thought I'd share. Try it sometime. Your chicken tacos will thank you.
14.5 oz can of Rotel
14.5 oz can of tomatoes (I use diced)
1 tbs + 1 tsp jalepeno
1/4 cup diced onions
3/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp sugar
(*You can play around with the sugar, I like an extra dash or two for sweetness. I have also tried it with a brown sugar to make it a little more Red Pepper-like. Mmm. Red Pepper.)
Very simple directions:
Run the onion and jalepeno through the food processor. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Process for a few seconds. Chill for awhile for best results. Eat with 300 tortilla chips. Promise yourself you'll do an extra half hour on the treadmill tomorrow. Maybe.
