(recipe, Jen Smith)

primary-image, l


  1. 2 jalapeño peppers, finely chopped (remove the seeds for a milder salsa, or leave them in for a fiery kick)
  2. 1 small onion, chopped
  3. ½ cup cilantro leaves, parsley leaves, or a combination of the two
  4. Zest of ½ lime (optional)
  5. 1 large (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  6. Salt, to taste


  1. Combine the chopped peppers, onion, fresh herbs, and optional lime zest in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse 4 to 5 times, until the contents are combined and coarsely chopped.
  2. Add the tomatoes, and process until the salsa is thick and chunky. Add salt to taste.
