Harlan & Lil’s Salsa

Why would I ever buy store bought salsa again?  Eloise made this for us a few years back and she is actually friends with Harlan & Lil, who gave us this fresh salsa recipe:

2 to 4 each jalapeno peppers, unseeded
1/3 to 1/2 of medium bell pepper
1/3 of medium onion
1 clove garlic

Pulse in food processor and add:

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon + a little more lime juice (1 small lime or 1/2 large lime)

Pulse processor and add:

1 can tomatoes (11 oz) drained well (I used homegrown tomatoes, skin off with the juice and seeds squeezed out)
1 small can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt

Pulse and adjust seasonings.  Start with 2 jalapeno peppers first then add more at end if not hot enough.
