Drain liquid from tomatoes, reserving 1 Tbsp. liquid; discard remaining liquid. Place reserved liquid, tomatoes, and next 8 ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse 5 to 6 times or until finely chopped. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours before serving. Garnish, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 7 days.
Note: We tested with DelMonte Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Mild Green Chilies.
I made this along with my standard pico I make. Both went over great! This one is more cost effective as I didn't have to spend as much on fresh tomatoes. I did however modify it to meet special needs of someone who cannot handle heat. I bought two cans of diced tomatoes, a fresh anaheim pepper. I made the recipe first with one can, but it by far needed two. I will be using this again.
