Homemade Spicy Salsa

This recipe is too easy and delicious not to share! Awhile ago, we ran out of salsa (the horror!!) and my husband and I both wanted some. I decided to make a quick spicy salsa and it turned out so good. We had enough to last all week and had many meals and snacks with it (tacos, chips and salsa, quesadillas).

Homemade Spicy Salsa

1 28 oz can low-sodium tomatoes, drained (I used diced)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small onion, chopped in quarters
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 fresh jalapeno (or can use 2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos)
1/4 tsp cayenne powder

Blend all ingredients together and serve. If you like it chunkier, blend only for a few seconds until just chopped.

Once our fresh garden tomatoes are plentiful, I plan to make this salsa using the fresh tomatoes.

I love that this recipe is super low in sodium but also very flavorful. My husband and I did not feel like it needed any additional salt.
