There’s nothing like fresh salsa! You’ll want to make plenty because your family and guests will gobble it down in no time. To accomplish a nice consistency, you’ll want to use a blender for ¾ of the finished product with the remaining portion you’ll add as the crunch.

8 – 10 Romano Tomatoes

2 Medium Red Onions

5 Cloves pressed Garlic

1 Tbsp Cilantro

1 tsp basil

¼ tsp salt

Dice tomatoes and onions in small cubes. Set aside ¼ of the batch to be added after you blend the larger portion of ingredients. In a blender, place ¾ of tomatoes and onions, along with the pressed garlic, cilantro, basil and salt. Blend 10 seconds, pulsating until you have a thick salsa puree. Pour blended portion into a glass serving bowl and add the ¼ remaining diced tomatoes and onion chunks to the puree. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour to get the full flavor. Break out the tortilla chips and enjoy!
