  • 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)


  • 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.
  • Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to blend.
