Equipment

  • Food processor

Ingredients

  • 2 cans Fire Roasted Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes This variety isn't always available. If not, purchase Mexican Styled Stewed Tomatoes.
  • 1/2 bunch Cilantro Chopped roughly.
  • 1 Green onion or scallion
  • 1/2 large yellow onion Chopped roughly.
  • 1 Jalenpino or Serrano Pepper I remove seeds, If you want more spice keep the seeds. Chopped roughly.
  • 3 cloves Garlic Chopped roughly.
  • Salt, pepper, garlic salt, and season salt to taste.
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Only add this if you cannot find the fire-roasted Mexican style stewed tomatoes.
  • 1 tsp Chili powder Only add this if you cannot find the fire-roasted Mexican style stewed tomatoes.

Instructions

  • Rinse, remove seeds from pepper (if desired) and roughly chop all ingredients, except the cans of Fire Roasted Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes.
  • Begin placing chopped ingredients into the food processor. I always recommend putting the cilantro in first and then adding the remaining ingredients on top.
  • Pour one can of stewed tomatoes on top, close lid, and start your food processor using the "Pulse" setting. Continue pulsing the ingredients until they are finely chopped. Do not puree the ingredients.
  • Add the 2nd can of Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes and pulse the food processor. I always leave this last can of tomatoes in slightly thicker chunks. Note: This is a personal preference and don't hesitate to process them to your taste.
  • Unplug your food processor and pour contents into a medium-sized mixing bowl or similar container.
  • If you cannot find the "Fire Roasted" Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes, add in the Cumin and Chili powder.
  • Lastly, season to taste with the salt, pepper, garlic salt, and seasoning salt.
