Ingredients:

10 roma tomatoes
2/3 cup onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cumin

1 poblano pepper, diced
(optional 1/2 tsp sugar)

Instructions:

1. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Cut them in half and squeeze out the juice and seeds.  They don’t have to come completely out, as long as you get the majority your salsa won’t be too runny.

2. Place the tomatoes in a food processor. Pulse 4-6 times until the tomatoes reach a thick and chunky consistency.

3. Place all remaining ingredients into the food processor with the tomatoes.

4. Pulse 3-5 times until well combined, but still chunky.

Enjoy!
