    1. 1
      Heat olive oil in fry pan on medium high heat.
    2. 2
      Fry onions until blackened but still tender.
    3. 3
      While onions are cooking, put tomatoes, cilantro, serrano pepper and garlic in mini chopper or food processor on high until all ingredients are finely chopped.
    4. 4
      When onions are done add them to processor along with the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Blend again until desired consistency. I blend mine for a while because I like it smooth like restaurant salsa.
    6. 6
      Let refrigerate for an hour to marinate. This salsa is great the first day but even better for days afterwards.

      very good! i did make a few adjustments. i used a can of crushed tomatoes since i didnt have fresh, and i also simmered it for about 20 minutes after it was all mixed. I also used pickled jalapeno instead of serrano, and poured some of the jalepeno juice in mine for a little extra spice.
