Jar of Salsa in < 5 min

This recipe came from a friend at church who is a great cook so I call it Sister H. salsa. It's more of a restaurant style non-chunky salsa which I love and it's super easy to make. I don't like store bought jar salsa very much because the peppers and onions are rubbery. I was so happy when she shared her recipe with me. My mother-in-law gave me the idea to use a canning jar on a blender - it's just like the magic bullet - genius!

1 can of diced tomatoes (the kind with lime and cilantro makes it even better)
2 jalapenos, chopped into a few pieces (with as many seeds as you can handle)
1 clove of minced garlic
handful of cilantro (I used cilantro that I had previously frozen in a yogurt cup of water)
salt to taste (a few shakes worked for me)

Thaw cilantro under running hot water in a strainer. Put all ingredients into a canning jar. Screw the blades of your blender onto the jar. Turn the jar upside down, hold it down with your hand, and give it a whirl. Use within a few days or freeze.
