Restaurante Style Salsa

Several weeks ago, I spotted a salsa on Pinterest that looked delicious.  Unfortunately, I could never find the link to the recipe.  Then, a few days later, someone had commented on the photo as to the recipe ingredients.  I don't know if it was accurate or not but I decided to try it.  The first batch I tried was too garlicky and needed some sweetness so I've finally tweaked it to my liking!  This is so easy too and it makes a pretty large quantity!  Enjoy!!

 You will need a 28 oz. can of CRUSHED tomatoes, a 4 oz. can of chopped green chiles, 3 green onions (white & green parts), a 1/4-1/2 bunch of cilantro, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. sugar, 3-4 shakes of red pepper flakes, and juice of 1/2 of a small lime.

 I pulsed the green onions, cilantro, and green chiles in the food chopper.  (You can chop these by hand if you want!)  My chopper didn't want to cooperate.  I don't think I had enough ingredients in it to work properly.  So I ended up adding a 1/4 cup of my tomatoes.  Then everything chopped up very fine!

 Add onion mixture, 1 clove of minced garlic, salt, sugar, and lime juice to tomatoes.  Stir well.

 Just like my favorite Mexican restaurant!!

Enjoy!!!
