Quick and Easy Fresh Salsa


6 Roma tomatoes
1/2 medium yellow onion
4 garlic cloves
2 jalapeño pepper
1-2 Serrano peppers (depending on how hot you want it)
1 handful fresh cilantro
Juice from 1 lime
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Additional salt/pepper to taste


Place all ingredients coarsely chopped into a food processor and pulse a few times, scrapping the side of the bowl down at least once, until the salsa is to your desired consistency. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. If you would like it less hot reduce the number of Serrano and jalapeño peppers and add poblano or Anaheim peppers instead.
