Love spicy food? Love easy recipes?  Have I got just the thing for you! This salsa has been a big hit in my home for several years now.  The recipe is super simple and can easily be adjusted to suit your family’s tastebuds.  Be prepared though, it’s gobbled up quickly and they will want more.

2 cans original Ro-tel tomatoes (10 oz)
1 fresh medium jalapeno pepper, finely chopped1 medium onion, finely chopped
Juice from 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried cilantro or 2 tablespoons of fresh, chopped fine

I dump all the ingredients into the blender, set to pulse, and puree until desired consistency.  If you like a more chunky texture, omit the blender, mix together and you’re done. Refrigerate.

This can be eaten right away but the longer the flavors meld, the better it tastes.
