Applebee's International, Inc. is the leader in the casual dining segment of the United States restaurant marketplace. The company franchises and operates more than 1,100 restaurants under the Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar name, about a quarter of which it owns. The eateries offer moderately priced, high-quality food and drink for all ages in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Applebee's is continuing to expand, with 1,800 outlets the company's stated goal. A smaller restaurant format has been designed for areas with populations under 25,000, to facilitate penetration of previously untapped markets.
1 14½ oz. can Ro-Tel
1 14½ oz. can whole peeled tomatoes (do NOT drain)
1½ tbsp. finely diced raw jalapeno (include seeds only if you want your salsa to be hot!)
¼ cup diced onion
¾ tsp. garlic salt
½ tsp. cumin
¼ tsp. sugar
Place jalapeños and onions in a food processor or Magic Bullet and run for approx. 5-10 seconds.
Add Ro-Tel, tomatoes, sugar, and cumin.
Process all ingredients until thin, but not completely pureed. (Just think of the consistency of Chili's Salsa and aim for that.)
Place in a covered container and chill for two hours.
Serve with thin, warm tortilla chips.
