Simple Salsa

1 large jalapeno pepper
1 medium white onion
4-8 sprigs fresh cilanto
2-3 larg tomatoes
2 heaping Tbs. tomato paste
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp.salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Using a food processor: Quarter and seed the jalapeno pepper. Mince the jalapeno pepper in the food processor. Add the cilantro sprigs to the processor and mince. Peel and quarter the onion. Add to food processor and coarsely chop. Quarter tomatoes and add with the remaining ingredients. Process to desird consistency.
Notes: The tomato paste will absorb the liquid from the processed ripe tomatoes so the firmer your tomatoes the less tomato paste you need. Add more peppers if you want to have a hotter salsa.
