~1 cup fresh packed coarsely choppedĀ cilantro
3 cloves fresh garlic
1/2 onion, coarsely chopped
1 jalapeno chili
7-8 (~2 1/2 pounds) tomatoes, cored and quartered
juice of 1 lime
salt (to taste)

1. Pulse the cilantro and garlic together for about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and add the onion and jalapeno and pulse until finely chopped. Add this mixture to a medium bowl.
