Summer Salsa

This is a really quick and easy salsa recipe. You can always add more ingredients or replace some.

3 medium tomatoes, cored and quartered
1 jalapeño, stem removed and roasted
3-4 small cloves garlic
2 tbsp cilantro
3-4 tbsp water
1 tsp olive oil
salt to taste
½ tsp. crushed red pepper

In a blender/food processor, add tomatoes, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro and water and pulse a few times until completely smooth.
Add oil to a deep skillet, then pour in tomato puree. Season with salt and crushed red peppers and simmer uncovered stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes.

The color of the salsa will be really light at first, but as it simmers you will see it become a really beautiful dark red.
