Back in Bozeman, whenever we needed salsa I would make a quick trip to our favorite grocery store to pick up a batch of Hot Mama's Medium Salsa. I loved the combination of flavors and it always tasted so fresh, nothing else compared to it. Since I've moved to Seattle, I have yet to find anything that compares. I was determined to find a quick replacement I could make at home so I came up with this recipe. It isn't Hot Mama's but it sure does the trick. The jalapeno gives it a kick while the cilantro and garlic add that fresh burst of flavor I desire in a salsa.
In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Cover and process until desired texture. Transfer to a small bowl and serve with your favorite Mexican dish or as an appetizer with some homemade guacamole and chips.
