Mexican Restaurant Style Salsa

Hi Folk's !

Here's my version of salsa.

You will need :

1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes
2 garlic cloves smashed and peeled - reserve 1
1 jalapeno pepper
1 habanero pepper
2 serrano peppers
1/2 a diced onion yellow or white
1/2   tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin
2 TBLS chopped cilantro
2 TTBS fresh lime juice

Open and drain tomatoes reserving liquid (add enough water to the reserved liquid to make 1 cup), slice peppers length wise and remove stems,  place in  a pot, add reserved liquid, peppers, onion and 1 clove of garlic, bring to boil then reduce to simmer and cook until onions and peppers are soft add more water if need ( just enough to keep everything moist).

After onions and peppers are soft, put in blender with tomatoes, reserved garlic  and spices, blend until smooth  ( this is a pretty hot salsa you may want to remove the peppers from the mixture before blending, blend with just the onions and liquid, and then taste for heat level, you can then add peppers as needed till you get it to the heat level you like).

After salsa is smooth and at the heat level you want, add cilantro and lime juice and blend for a few seconds more. Pour into container and chill for an hour to let all the flavors marry. Serve with tortilla chips.

I hope you try and enjoy this recipe.
