How to make homemade salsa

Step 1: Cut the roma tomatoes into large chunks. Dice the red onion and mince the garlic.

Add the roma tomatoes, canned tomatoes, red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, sugar and cumin to a food processor.

Pulse in 1 second increments until the salsa is combined, but still has some chunks for texture. You do not want it to be totally smooth.

Step 2: Add salt to taste. Cover and chill the fresh salsa in the fridge for several hours to allow the flavors to really marinate together.

The longer you let the salsa marinate, the more the flavors can marry and become even more delicious.

This recipe makes a large amount, making it perfect for endless chips and salsa, or as an appetizer for a party or family meal.
