February 27: Heidi's Salsa

This recipe comes from Heidi's 10th grade cooking class. One doesn't expect a high school cooking class recipe to be good, but this one is a keeper. I especially like that you can use canned tomatoes, which I do a lot when there are not fresh tomatoes available.

4 medium tomatoes (1 can tomatoes)
1 jalapeno pepper
1/2 medium sweet onion
½ lg green pepper
Juice of 1 lime
1 clove garlic
1 tsp salt
3 T cilantro
4 oz tomato sauce
Wash tomatoes, peppers and onion. Chop them up.
Seed jalapeno and chop. Place all in blender. Pulse
until chunky or desired smoothness. Add tomato sauce
and lime juice. Pulse until mixed in.
