maria's salsa - the best mexican salsa in the world

Maria makes the best Mexican Salsa in the whole world. She even taught some of us how to make it and would you believe we sold every jar for a fund raiser? I begged Maria (who joined our game night last Friday) to send me her recipe for her secret salsa. Just kidding.

I'm growing everything in my garden to make this salsa. Thanks Maria for the secret salsa recipe.

1 jalapeño (fresh)
1 whole tomato – diced (can use 8 oz can of diced tomatoes instead)
¼ small small onion
¼ cup fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic
1 lemon - squeezed(may substitute lemon/lime juice)
½ tsp salt
1 dash cumin (not necessary, only if you’d like)

(if you like more of any of the above, feel free to add them)
1. Cook jalapeño in water (until turns light green)
2. Chop jalapeño, tomatoes, cilantro, onion, garlic, and tomatoes in food processor (to desired consistency- may add water)
3. Combine all ingredients in bowl
4. Squeeze lemon or lime
5. Add salt and cumin (to taste)
