Homemade Salsa

From the kitchen of Jennifer: (Click on link to check out her awesome blog--and for more recipes, decorating tips, and much encouragement from an awesome lady of God!
Salsa Time

Ingredients:
* 1 small onion


* 1 or 2 cloves garlic


* 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (OR MORE - I use MORE)


* 1 jalapeno chili pepper, chopped roughly (or a seeded Serrano pepper)


* zest of 1 lime(optional)


* juice of 1 lime (or just a squeeze :)

* 1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes

* 1 dash hot sauce or 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional - I don't use this)

* 1 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt

* 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper

Directions:

Peel and slice onion in quarters. Place in the work bowl of a food processor, fitted with a metal blade. Add the garlic cloves. Pulse four to five times, until onion is diced. Be careful not to over-process, or the salsa will end up mushy. Add the cilantro, chili pepper (with or without seeds), lime zest, lime juice, tomatoes and hot sauce. Pulse until the salsa reaches the consistency of a thick puree. Be sure to leave in some chunks, too. It makes it look more homemade. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
