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!
- 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.
