Seed and dice the tomatoes. For this batch to have some and share some, I used ten Roma tomatoes. This can be a big job, especially if you are me and get a little lost in the threads during the slicing and dicing. When I just want to get it done, I throw them in the food processor and using the s-blade, pulse them a bit. This batch above was for a party, so I wanted them pretty. With Pandora's family folk station on some hip swinging, toe tapping tunes, I made quick work of those babies without loosing a digit.
Rinse the cilantro and pulse in the processor. You can also chop them to bits, but time... that's the advantage of owning one of these machines. I don't bother separating the leaves from the stems. Once I learned the stems are about as savory as the leaves, I wondered why I had been wasting my time for all those years.
Put a half of red onion (or my usual preference, a bunch of green onions), two jalapenos, and two cloves of garlic into the processor and pulse.
Taste, adjust, mix and repeat.
And clean up.
Share to a room full of football fans and feel the love. (Didn't Madonna look great, last night?)
