Homemade Salsa

TGIF! And what better way to celebrate than your own happy hour at home! Crack open a few beers and enjoy this salsa with chips. It’s the most delicious salsa I’ve ever had, and you won’t believe how easy it is to make. No more of the jarred stuff!


This salsa is made from canned tomatoes, so there’s no need to wait until tomatoes are in season to make it. Which, right now, is a great thing, considering the snow is falling fast as we speak…

Homemade Salsa
barely adapted from Simply Fresh Cooking

2 (14 1/2 ounces) cans diced tomatoes
1 onion, roughly chopped
5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
6 tablespoons fresh cilantro

Drain tomatoes and reserve juice. Add onion, garlic and jalapeno to food processor. Add juice from tomatoes, lime juice, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Process on high for 30 seconds.

Add half the tomatoes and turn on high for 5 seconds. Add remaining tomatoes and cilantro and pulse until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to eat.

Makes 3 cups.

    I love this Melissa, I have made this salsa for most of my life. I am from the “Hatch”
    valley, NM. The only difference in mine and yours is that I add some crushed oregano and a little Cumin. REALLY good.
