Equipment

  • Food processor or Ninja Chopper (or blender)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 can Whole tomatoes
  • 1 Dried Chipotle pepper (Softened in warm water)
  • 1 tbsp Whole cumin seeds (Toasted)
  • 1 handful Cilantro
  • 1/4 Purple onion (Small)

Instructions
 

  • Place chipotle pepper in coffee mug filled with water and microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until it softens up. Set aside.
  • In a frying pan, toast the cumin seeds until they are fragrant, about 2 minutes. Shake and toss so they do not burn.
  • Add all of the other ingredients to a food processor, and then add the cumin seeds and chipotle pepper. Blend until it becomes a salsa texture, 30 seconds. Make sure the chipotle pepper has blended in.
  • Chill. Will keep for 2-3 days in refrigerator.
