Quick and Easy Blender Salsa

I've had this recipe on one of my Pinterest boards for a long time, but never got around to trying it until my niece Cate made this for one of our family reunion activities. I was impressed by how good it was. I like the recipe because it is quick, because you can make the salsa year round since it uses canned tomatoes, and because it tastes quite fresh. You can find the original recipe here.

1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1- 10 oz can original Ro-tel
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends the degree of spiciness you prefer; I actually omitted this)
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro, washed
juice of one lime

Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender (I used a stick blender) and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.
