Just Like Restaurant Style Salsa

What you need: 

1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes with juice
3 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes and green chiles (I use original Rotel)
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 pickled jalapeno slices, chopped (I use Old El Paso)
2 teaspoons pickled jalapeno juice, optional
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 cup cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced

What you do: 

1. Combine all ingredients into a food processor (I have a large one, if you have a smaller one, then do it in separate batches and put it all together in a bowl).
2. Process until desired consistency is reached.
3. If you can stand to wait, allow the salsa to sit in the refrigerator for an hour before serving. It allows the flavors to come together, but I can never wait that long to dig in.
Source of recipe: After trying some different salsa recipes I found online, I decided to come up with my own. After some experimenting, this is what I came up with.
