  • 1 28 ounce can whole tomatoes, NOT drained (or 3 ½ cups chopped fresh tomatoes)
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies (or 2 fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped)
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro stems included (or can substitute with fresh flat leaf parsley)
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, with the tomatoes, chilies, and onion on the bottom (closest to the blade). Pulse a couple of times to chop up the larger chunks, and then puree until salsa reaches desired texture. Taste the salsa and season with additional salt or honey, as desired.
  2. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to blend.
