Fresh Salsa to Die For

 We've been making this salsa about once a week at our house and it disappears so fast!
 Fresh Salsa by Rachelle at Mashedpotatoesandcrafts.com
4-5 Roma Tomatoes, or mix & match with tomato varieties you like
1 Green Pepper
2 Anaheim Peppers or toss in another green pepper
2 Jalapeno Peppers--remove the seeds from 1 of the peppers
1 onion-medium sized
1 tsp. Cumin
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Garlic clove
2 tsp. Lime juice
1-2 tsp. salt

Throw everything in the blender--tomatoes first. If you have a high-powered blender or BlendTec then you don't need to chop anything, just toss it in. Pulse to desired consistency.
Enjoy! This salsa isn't super burn-your-face-off hot, but it has a nice zip. My kids still think it's too hot, but I think it's just right to keep you salivating for more.
You'll note from the pictures that my salsa isn't very red--this is because I blend all the ingredients together. If you want yours to look red, then you could try blending separately or chopping. We really like the texture of this salsa. I could drink it folks--it's so good!
