Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa

Yum, yum, yum!
Who can resist a good salsa??
You would think me living so close to Mexico, that there would be a good Mexican Restaurant around here. No. There's Not. 
Well, there is but it's 13 miles north of town and we're 10 miles south of town. And that's not including how many miles the town is! So, we go there on special occasions. :)

BUT! We love great salsa. I love this one because I know it's homemade and I know exactly what's in it.

So, let's get on with it!
What you need:
1 can Whole tomatoes (The big can, can't remember the oz on it, sorry)
2 cans Rotel (I used hot)
1/2 an onion
1 Jalapeno
1 small lime or 1/2 a lime
some Cilantro
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
Now, you should know, if you don't already, this house lives, breathes, and runs off of garlic. We put it in everything and we put a lot of it. We'll put huge whole chunks and we like it that way. -- just a side note.
So, when I say to add 2 tbsp of minced garlic, that is just for me and the hubs. But to tone it down, add 1 tbsp.

You will need either a blender or food processor for this next part.

What you need to do:
Pulse the whole tomatoes.  Juices and all
(You want them little, otherwise you'll just have Pico de Gallo, and that's not what we want here.)
Once tomatoes are tiny, pulse in the rotel, juices and all.
Next, chop up your Jalapeno and onion to medium sized pieces. Just so that it'll fit in the food processor. 
You can take out the seeds if you'd like, since I hear that's where all the spice is at. But I included it.
Pulse up your Jalapeno and Onion.
Pulse in everything else! (except for lime)
Now, squeeze the life out of that lime into your salsa! (I asked my big strong hubby to do it *wink*wink* You know they love being masculine for you)

Presto, you. are. done. 

Now, go enjoy your salsa with your family!!!
