Super Fast Blender Salsa

by Laura

My family is big fans of chips and salsa. My husband and boys love to eat them as a snack. When I saw this recipe from Prudy at Prudence Pennywise, it was a must try. I figured that it would be similar to salsa served at many Mexican restaurants.
It was so yummy and just like I expected. The spice was just perfect for my family, just a small kick. It you want it spicier you could add more jalapeno. The beauty of this too is it only cost me 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 up a batch today, you won’t be disappointed.

Super Fast Blender Salsa

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 white onion, chopped
  • 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes with jalapenos, undrained
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, with some tender stems
  • juice of 1 lime (or lemon will work too)

  1. Combine ingredients in the blender in the order listed. Puree until smooth, or leave a little chunky, if desired. I like it with a little chunk to it.

Me again, I wanted to let you know that my ten year old daughter LOVES it! She said it is better than our local Mexican joint’s. Now, coming from her, that is a real compliment.

I gave this a try with a tad less cilantro(not a huge fan) and a pinch of sugar-it is really tasty! I think it will taste even better when the flavors have had time to meld. Yummy!

I’ve been making this for years and it’s a family favorite. Except I use the plain diced tomatoes and put in 1/2 of a fresh jalapeno for a doubled recipe. My trick for making sure the onion and other ingred. are chopped small without the tomatoes being too pureed: Put half the tomatoes in the blender with everything else and blend until well mixed. Then add the remaining tomatoes and pulse about 3 times. Perfect!

It does have some spice to it, but my family is pretty whimpy too. You could use plain canned tomatoes and eliminate the heat.

I just recently made my own salsa with canned tomatoes and I couldn’t believe how easy and delicious it was. I like mine with a little more kick so I add some tobasco too 🙂
