  • 1 (14.5 oz) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp diced white onion
  • 1 small jalapeƱo (or 1/2 a large), minced (remove seeds and ribs for less heat)
  • 1 small clove of garlic , minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro


  • Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse until you reach your desired consistency. Use a tortilla chip to do a taste test and adjust if necessary. Refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving to let the flavors marry.


I started with 1/8 tsp of sea salt, then increased to 1/4 tsp. Tortilla chips can vary in saltiness, so that's why it's good to do the chip taste test.
