Fiery Salsa

Happy Hump Day!  Its "The Happy Hour" here at The Slow Roasted Italian every Wednesday we bring you fantastic dishes you would find at happy hour.

This Wednesday I bring you a "Fiery Salsa" made just for Mr. W and his raging inferno of a palate.  He enjoys things so hot that just the smell of them makes me tear up.  Well, this isn't that hot.  But, it is too hot for me.  I am more of a mild to medium heat kinda girl.

He also enjoys a thin consistency.  You will find jalapenos, chili powder, cayenne, black pepper, onion and garlic.  Just perfect to hit the whole tongue!  Hope you enjoy.

Fiery Salsa
2 medium Roma tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 ½ jalapenos, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ tablespoon cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ large sweet onion, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
¾ teaspoon cayenne

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Pulse until well blended.
