This salsa recipe is great because it uses bottled tomatoes, but it still tastes fresh because of the cilantro.  It's a thin salsa which works great because my kids won't eat tomatoes, but they eat this right up!

1 onion, quartered
1/3 bunch cilantro
1 inch jalapeno, seeded
2 quarts whole tomatoes (drain most of the juice out)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place ingredients in a blender in the order they are listed.  Turn it on high.  As soon as all the ingredients are blending, count to 5 then turn off the blender.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Note:  When I bottle tomatoes, I don't add salt.  If your tomatoes have salt, you may want to use a little less.  Also, if you want it hotter, add more jalapeno!
