Easy Restaurant Style Salsa

1/4 small onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno (from jar or fresh)

1/2 tablespoon sugar
2-4 tablespoons RealLime brand lime juice (or fresh)
1/4 teaspoon cumin

1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, cores removed and well drained* 
1 cup cilantro leaves (stems removed)
1/4 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste)

Add onion, garlic, jalapeno, sugar, lime juice, and cumin to food processor and process until everything is well minced. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula a few times. Add the tomatoes and cilantro and pulse about 10-15 times, depending on how chunky or smooth you like it. Salt to taste. Eat or freeze within one week. Best to refrigerate before serving.

*I use a small pairing knife or kitchen shears to cut out the stem ends of the tomatoes. I prefer to use Hunt's brand No Salt Added Whole Tomatoes.
