Quick and EASY Blender Salsa

Once you try this salsa recipe, you’ll NEVER buy “jarred” salsa again.   I’ve been making this salsa for about 2 years now and it will last 2 days at the most at my house.  Serve with warmed tortilla chips sprinkled with chili powder for an extra treat.  I always keep these ingredients on hand minus the cilantro and lime. You could cheat and buy the liquid lime and dried cilantro but fresh is so much better!

Ingredients:

  • Can of Diced Tomatoes (or fresh tomatoes if you have any handy)
  • Can of Rotel Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Small Onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Clove of Garlic..I add more!
  • 1/2-1 Jalapeno seeded or not (depends on how spicy you want it)
  • 1 t honey
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 T Cumin (I like more)
  • Medium Handful of Cilantro, washed
  • Juice of 1 Lime

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and pulse to combine to desired consistency.

*The hubby likes it blended and smooth but I like some chunks, so I will sometimes divide the Rotel and add the other half after I’ve blended the salsa.

*This salsa is also a good base for guacamole.  Just dice and chop a few avocados and mix in salsa.

*It also mixes good with browned ground beef for taco meat.  Tastes much better that the packet seasoning. Add some onion while browning the beef and add some salsa for flavor.
