Ingredients for Mild Salsa
4 Roma tomatoes
1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup cilantro
2 cloves garlic
La Costeña canned jalapeno slices
salt to taste
I have used a mini chopper in the past, but prefer a blender because it holds more. So I start off with two Roma tomatoes (tops and bottoms cut off) and then I roughly cut them up into smaller pieces.

|Two Romas, cut into pieces|
|Onion, rough chop.|
|Cilantro, rough chop|
|Garlic, two cloves, rough chop|
At this point, I put everything in the blender and decide that I need to add two more Roma tomatoes.
|Two more tomatoes; rough cut these too.|
|Salsa ingredients in the blender.|
|My preferred brand of jalapenos for salsa|
|Salsa, ready to blend.|
Now it's time to blend:
|Whirr, whirr in the blender.|
|Adding more jalapenos|
|Look at all that yummy goodness!|
I also have to make a batch for the hubby because he likes his much hotter than I do. So this is what the blender looks like when I make his salsa (more garlic, more onion, and the rest of the can of jalapenos and all the juice was used).

|Whirr, whirr in the blender|
|DH's salsa . . . notice more green|
¡Hasta la proxíma vez!
