Stop What You’re Doing And Make This Fiery Salsa!


We eat so much salsa, we realized we were spending too much money on buying it and decided to make it ourselves.  We did not start with the intention of making a better tasting salsa, just trying to save some money.  However, along the way we realized we could make our own taste even better and even add flavors and ingredients we normally would not.  It was such a cool hack we learned and absolutely love it now!

Check out what our friends over at A Spicy Perspective had to say about this:

“Well, we think this is The Best Homemade Salsa Recipe around because it’s healthy, quick to make, offers a fine chunky texture, and is brimming with absurd amounts of flavor.”

Oh yeah, chunky flavorful salsa is my favorite kind!



4 ripe tomatoes, cored and quartered

1 red onion, peeled and quartered

3 garlic cloves, peeled

3 jalapenos, stemmed and seeded (You can substitute 1-2 habanero or serrano peppers.)

1/3 cup fresh cilantro

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2-3 teaspoons Domino sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

15 ounce can crushed san marzano tomatoes

4.5 ounce can diced green chiles (mild, medium, or hot)



Place the fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, peppers, lime juice, cumin, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the contents are fine and well blended.

Pour in the crushed tomatoes and green chiles. Puree until mostly smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.





Quick Tip: If refrigerated in an airtight container, this salsa should last 10-12 days.

Thanks again to A Spicy Perspective for this amazing recipe.
