Quick homemade tomato salsa

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: (optional) 1 hour

1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 fresh jalapeño, seeded and cut into chunks (more or less to taste)
1 small onion, cut into chunks
Half a 4 1/2-ounce can chopped green chilies, drained
1/3 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon (or 1 clove) minced garlic
Juice of half a small lime

In a food processor, combine diced tomatoes and green chilies with jalapeño and onion. Process until desired texture is reached. Transfer to a bowl and stir in green chilies, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Refrigerating for at least one hour will allow flavors to blend.
