Homesick Texan Salsa

I was so excited when my sister gave me this Homesick Texan Cookbook for Christmas!  I already like the Homesick Texan blog, so I knew the cookbook was going to be great.  I started marking recipes immediately.

This salsa took just a couple of minutes to throw together, and we really liked it.  We had it on our nachos, with our eggs, and on and on.  It makes 3 1/2 cups though, which is a huge amount of salsa (even for us, and we eat a good bit of it), so you might want to cut the recipe in half.  Her recipe notes that it keeps for a week in the refrigerator. 

Homesick Texan Salsa

1 (28oz) can of crushed tomatoes
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup cilantro
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1/4 to 1/2 cup pickled jalapeno slices
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Salt, to taste

Place all ingredients except the salt into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Taste and adjust seasonings and add salt to taste.
