Super Easy and Fabulous Salsa!

I make a LOT of salsa! Recently I discovered a 'cheat' way of making savory and delicious salsa. I'd actually never heard of Rotel, but the minute I tried it, I was hooked! Rotel is this great little product containing diced tomatoes and green chiles. It comes in mild and hot and can be found at just about any grocery store. I've made salsas from fresh tomatoes many times, but my husband swears that this salsa is his hands-down favorite! It's bursting with lime and garlic flavor and tastes garden-fresh. Enjoy, and come back soon to check out my guacamole, lime sour cream and grilled chicken quesadilla recipes!
Makes about 2 cups

1 14 oz. can of Rotel (I typically use the traditional Rotel, not the hot or mild)
1 good pinch of Kosher salt
black pepper
juice of one lime
1 garlic clove
about 2 tbsp. of fresh cilantro (NO dried herbs, please!)
1-2 tbsp. chopped red onion

Pulse all ingredients in a small food processor (or you can use an immersion blender). This salsa gets better after a few hours in the refrigerator. I suggest leaving it in overnight before serving.
