Salsa recipes don’t get much easier than this one.  

  • Diced tomatoes – canned (I use Muir Glen Organic No Salted Added)
  • Fire roasted tomatoes  – canned (I use Muir Glen Organic)
  • Canned Rotel Original
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Jalapeño
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Onion powder
  • Cumin powder
  • Lime
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE SALSA

  • Add of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend to desired consistency
  • Adjust heat and seasoning to desired taste

The easy salsa recipe is a versatile one.  Add as much or as little heat as you like.  I like mine a little garlicky, so I add two cloves of garlic.  If you aren’t a fan of garlic, then go with a single clove.  If you prefer a chunkier salsa, just don’t blend as much.  And as far as heat goes, add as little or as much jalapeño as you can handle.   Or add in a little hot sauce.
