Super Fast & Easy Blender Salsa

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

My family is avid fans of chips and salsa. My husband and boys love to eat them as a snack. It is also an awesome appetizer. When I saw this recipe for super fast blender salsa from Prudy at Prudence Pennywise, it was a must try. I figured this homemade salsa would be similar to a restaurant style salsa.

I love how easy this super fast blender salsa is. Just put garlic, onion, lime juice, salt, cilantro, and canned diced tomatoes with jalapeño in a blender.

At this point you can puree or pulse to get the consistency that you want for your salsa. I like to pulse and leave it a little more of a chunky salsa.

This easy blender salsa is so yummy and just like I expected it to be. The spice is just perfect for my family, just a small kick. It you want it spicier you could add more jalapeño. For a milder flavor, substitute with tomatoes that have green chiles.

The beauty of this too is it only costs around $1 to make. It has more of a fresh taste to it than your regular jarred salsa, even with the use of the canned tomatoes. Blend a batch today and serve in a bowl along with your favorite tortilla chips. It won’t disappoint you.
