I received a food processor for Christmas from my wonderful mother, and for a good couple of weeks I was too afraid of it to use it! I had never before seen one used in my whole life - everyone I knew used blenders. I was a bit nervous to use it with all of its various attachments but once I got over that it's been incredibly useful!! At this point I barely remember what it was like to not have a food processor, I think everyone should buy one!

I made this salsa for Super Bowl Sunday, and it really does taste just like the salsa at a Mexican restaurant!! The Husband and I don't like chunky salsa, so I made sure to process it until it was super smooth!

Restaurant Style Salsa
from Iowa Girl Eats


1-14.5oz can petite diced tomatoes

1/4 large red onion, roughly chopped

1/2 jalapeno, roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped


1 teaspoon dried cilantro, or a large handful of fresh cilantro

juice of half a lime

Place tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and garlic cloves into a food processor. Pulse until chunky. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until desired consistency is reached. Refrigerate for at least an hour, then taste and adjust salt and lime juice levels, if necessary.
