Easy and Cheap Homemade Salsa Recipe

I love salsa. The stuff from the stores just doesn't cut it though. We eat alot of Mexican food at our house and buying fresh tomatoes to make a batch of salsa sometimes isn't affordable. That's where this recipe comes in. It is so CHEAP! It uses canned tomatoes instead of fresh and it's even cheaper that the jarred stuff at the supermarket. Not to mention it tastes pretty darn good and you can use so many different ingredients to switch up the flavor! It was also great added in with the Vegetarian Taco Dip recipe. Enjoy!!

What you need:
2- 14.5 oz diced tomatoes (regular or Mexican style)
1 small can diced green chiles
1/4 bunch cilantro
2 cloves garlic
2 whole green onions
1/2 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper

additional add-ins:
anaheim pepper
bell pepper

Mince all ingredients in a food processor except tomatoes. Add tomatoes, pulse a couple more times, or until it reaches the consistency you prefer. Refrigerate before serving!
