Salsa, Tomato (one minute)

#3       Comment on this recipe.


    This quick salsa can be made with either fresh or canned tomatoes, but if you're using fresh, make sure they are sweet, ripe, in-season tomatoes. If they aren't, canned tomatoes are a better choice.


  1. 1/2 small jalapeno chile or 1/2 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced
  2. 1/4 small red onion, peeled and root end removed
  3. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  4. 2 T fresh cilantro leaves
  5. 1/4 t salt
  6. pinch ground black pepper
  7. 2 t lime juice
  8. 2 small ripe tomatoes (about 3/4 lb.), each cored and cut into eights, or one (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained


  1. Pulse all ingredients except tomatoes in food processor until minced, about five 1 second pulses, scraping sides of bowl as necessary. Add tomatoes and pulse until roughly chopped, about two 1 second pulses.
