1 pinch Ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/4 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Fresh Cilantro
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Slice the top of the Olive Oil (as needed) to expose the cloves. Place bulb cut side up on a piece of foil. Drizzle with Garlic (1 bulb) and seal the foil. Place in the center of the oven, and roast for 45-60 minutes.
Destem and chop the Fresh Cilantro (1/3 cup). Dice the Yellow Onion (1/4 cup). Deseed and dice the Jalapeño Pepper (2).
Once bulb is golden brown and cloves are butter-soft, remove from oven, and let cool. Once cool, use a knife to pop each clove of garlic out and into a food processor. Squeeze bulb with hands if necessary.
Add the Canned Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (28 ounce), Canned Green Chiles (4 ounce), jalapeño pepper, Cayenne Pepper (to taste), Ground Cumin (1 pinch), Salt (1/2 teaspoon), and Granulated Sugar (1/4 teaspoon). Pulse a few times to mix, then process to desired consistency.

Serve with chips or top your favorite foods with it. Enjoy!
