In this instructable I will show you how you can make a restaurant style salsa. This tomato salsa can be served with for example tortilla chips or put on some tacos. It takes you less than 5 minutes (if you dice the onions and bell pepper) and a good food processor to make the salsa.
To make the salsa you need the following ingredients: can of drained whole tomatoes, garlic, green chili pepper, green bell pepper, fresh cilantro leaves, diced white onion. cumin powder, salt, sugar (optional), fresh black pepper.
The process is simple. Dice the onion and bell pepper. Deseed the green chile pepper. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulls until smooth. If you want a more chunky result make sure to pulse very short else let it run a little longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. If the salsa is to liquidity add some tomatoes without the seeds.
You can store homemade salsa in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of days. Usually they will be more moist on the second day. Drain the excess moisture and stir your salsa before serving. You can also store it in the freezer and thaw slowly before use. Again the salsa will contain more liquid. Drain the excess liquid and stir before use.
