My son loves chips and salsa. When he was just a toddler we went to a Mexican restaurant and he was eating chips and salsa. The waitress told us we shouldn’t be letting him eat the salsa because it was too hot for him, but he loved it.
Now he’s nineteen and loves fresh salsa. I’ve never made salsa at home before. So when I saw Laura’s Super Fast Blender Salsa recipe and he was home from school, it was the perfect time to try it.
While I’m sure this recipe would be even better with some homegrown tomatoes, we loved this salsa. The fresh cilantro and lime juice give it a nice fresh flavor that you don’t get from salsa in a jar. Yet it was so easy and simple to make. I used my food processor instead of the blender so that it would be a little more chunky. Here’s my version:
- 1 clove garlic chopped
- ¼ yellow onion chopped
- 1 10 ounce Rotel can diced tomatoes & green chilies, undrained (I use mild – original to too hot for me)
- ½ cup cilantro leaves
- juice of 1 lime
- salt to taste
- Place tomatoes, garlic, onion, cilantro, and lime juice in the food processor. Pulse until well combine and your desired consistency. Add salt to taste.
