Homemade Salsa

I generally have a jar of store-bought salsa, which is fine and good, but I love getting chips and fresh salsa at a good restaurant. It’s just so much better — you can taste (and see) every part of the salsa, instead of that over-processed jarred stuff. So with my handy-dandy food processor, I decided to make my own homemade salsa. The cool thing about this is that you can totally control what you are making. You can decide just how spicy, how chunky and how-whatever you want it. And it’s such a SIMPLE recipe!




1 can (14.5 oz) fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies
1/4 red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 jalapeno, chopped
1/8 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. mexican-style chili powder
1/4 cup cilantro
2 tsp. lime juice


Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until you get the consistency you want. Taste and add ingredients as needed.

Just remember — you can add more spice, but you can’t remove it. So be careful with the jalapeno and chili powder.
