  • Food Processor


  • ½ Bunch of Fresh Cilantro
  • ¼ White Onion
  • ¼ Fresh Jalapeno seeds removed
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 2 tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 6 Plum Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt


  • In a food processor combine the cilantro, onion, jalapeno, garlic, and lime juice. Blend until finely chopped or blades can no longer cut the ingredients (about 10-20 seconds).
  • Turn off the food processor. Scrape the sides of the food processor, then add in halved plum tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, coriander, and salt.
  • Blend for 10 seconds. Then pulse for an additional 10-20 seconds until desired consistency. Taste and add additional salt, lime juice or spices if desired.



  • Recipe yields 3 cups of salsa.
  • To store salsa: If you happen to have any leftover salsa, store in an airtight container, and refrigerator. The salsa will last for 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
