Fresh Tomato with Jalapeno Pepper Salsa

Author: Anita's Table Talk


  • 1-2 fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped (I include seeds because I like it hot)
  • 3 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 medium size green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/8 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • ΒΌ teaspoon smoked paprika or chipotle powder (optional for smoky flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • COMBINE the jalapeno pepper, tomatoes, green bell pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, cider vinegar, oregano, paprika or chipotle powder (if using), cumin, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender.
  • PULSE/BLEND until all ingredients are combined but still chunky. SERVE.
