Canned Tomatoes: I suggest using fire-roasted canned tomatoes because they have a great flavor for salsa. You can absolutely use regular diced tomatoes if that is what you have. Also, you can use 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes if you don’t have 2 (15 ounce) cans.
Diced Green Chiles: You’ll want to drain your (7 ounce) can of diced green chiles. If you don’t have green chiles, feel free to add a can of Rotel or leave out entirely.
Lime Juice: You can use fresh or bottled here. If you have a whole lime, go ahead and use the zest and juice of the whole thing. The zest will add bright flavor to the salsa. If you don’t have lime juice, any acid will work. You can substitute with apple cider vinegar or orange juice.
Jalapeno: This is where you can use your personal preference. If you like a more mild salsa, cut your jalapeno in half and remove the seeds and ribs. Make sure to wear gloves or wash your hand right after removing. If you prefer salsa with a little more heat, leave the seeds and ribs. You’ll still want to cut the jalapeno in half to make it easier to blend in the food processor.…
