Homemade Tomato Salsa


4 medium ripe tomatoes, cored and seeded * 2 - 3 cloves garlic, peeled * juice from 1 fresh lime (about ¼ cup) * 1 – 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, stems removed and finely chopped * salt and pepper, to taste


Cut 3 of the tomatoes into quarters and place in blender or food processor. Add garlic cloves and half the lime juice. Pulse until thoroughly combined. Dice remaining tomato into evenly sized small pieces. Stir into tomato garlic mixture to create a chunkier texture. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro (adjust according to personal preference). Add remaining lime and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with your favorite Mexican entrée or by itself with crispy tortilla chips.
