Super Salsa for the Super Bowl!

Happy Super Bowl weekend to everyone! Today I'm sharing a recipe for a salsa that will be great to make for a Super Bowl party (or any other kind of party). I first posted this recipe back in June, but I think it is worth a repost. A friend of mine mentioned yesterday on my Facebook page that she made the salsa, and it made me think about sharing the recipe again. This salsa is not for those of you who can't handle a little heat - it has a lot of KICK to it. For those of you can handle the heat,  tomorrow you can sit back and kick it with chips, super salsa, and the Super Bowl. But don't stay up too late tomorrow night because I checked the calendar, and Super Bowl Monday is NOT a day off from work. Darn!

Recipe for Super Salsa

2 jalapenos, deveined & seeded and coarsely chopped (take out more seeds for less heat, less for more heat)
3 cloves of garlic, cut in half
1 14-ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 of a smallish yellow onion
2 Tbsp. of red wine vinegar
3 large tomatoes
1 Tbsp. of cumin powder
1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. of kosher salt
1 - 2 Tbsp. of cilantro leaves
Juice of one lime

Add the jalapeno and garlic to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add all of the other ingredients to the food processor and pulse until the salsa is at your desired chunkiness. Put salsa in a bowl and cover. Put it in the fridge for a couple hours before serving so the flavors can marinate together. Enjoy!
