Super Fast Blender Salsa

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.

  • ½ cup cilantro leaves, with some tender stems

  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.

  • Delish! Super Easy and perfect for a sick pregnant mommy, who doesn't want to be in the kitchen long, but wants salsa!

  • I blogged about this recipe and left your an award on my blog! Thanks!

  • This is the best salsa I have ever eaten! Thank you so much for posting! Delicious, fast, and cheap. Doesn’t get better than that! 🙂

  • I’ve been looking for a recipe like this. Can’t wait to try it! Thanks!

  • 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!

  • We LOVE chips and salsa at our house too!! Thanks for the great recipe; I can’t wait to give it a try!

  • 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!

  • This looks awesome… thank you for sharing it.

  • oh I love this recipe!

  • 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 🙂

  • Ok my husband and I are major spice wimps and I have a 20 month old. Do you think this would have too much kick for us?

  • I’ve never seen a salsa recipe that uses canned tomatoes. It’s a great idea!
