Cinco de Mayo Salsa

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, my company hosted a little friendly salsa competition. Let's just say that this little recipe pulled out a win for me but not without tears. Tears from touching my eye after cutting jalapenos. Not my smartest move but this recipe is smart because you use canned tomatoes! It's got some heat so go easy on the peppers if you prefer a milder salsa.

Cinco de Mayo Salsa

4 fresh jalapenos (see note below for heat level)
1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves
2-3 cloves garlic
2 limes, juice
1 teaspoon salt
2 cans Hunts diced tomatoes

Put everything but the tomatoes in a food processor. Pulse until diced. Add the tomatoes and pulse a few times to combine. Serve with chips.

Note: This recipe can be very hot. And can be made without the jalapeno seeds and veins to make it less hot.
