Food: Fresh Salsa

We had creamy chicken taquitos for lunch today and somehow I missed picking up salsa at the grocery yesterday. So I looked up a quick salsa recipe and whipped up this amazing salsa. Nevermind that I didn't have a jalapeño, I just walked right out in the backyard and picked a nice ripe one off of the jalapeño plant :D
My go to site now for amazing recipes is Annie's Eats, this is where I found this fabulous recipe for this fabulous fresh salsa :) I cut the recipe in half and it made a bunch. Enjoy :)

Fresh Salsa

2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and very coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic, halved
2 large vine-ripened tomatoes
1 (28 0z.) can diced tomatoes (drained or not, depending on how much liquid you want in your salsa)
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. cumin
1/2 sweet yellow onion, coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
juice of one lime

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the jalapenos and garlic. Process until finely chopped. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add all other ingredients to the food processor. Pulse in very brief pulses until the vegetables have reached the size you desire (it does not take many pulses so don’t overdo it). Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
