I have tortilla chips and salsa with my lunch pretty regularly. I’m a big fan of most salsas and I love trying new ones. I started making my own recently, which is fun and easy to do! As a bonus, it’s saving us money; I’m making more than twice the amount that I used to buy for less than I used to spend. ^_^ This recipe fills a 32oz (quart) wide-mouth mason jar.
28 oz can petite diced tomatoes
¼ cup onion, diced
10 jalapeño slices (from store-bought jar – I use Great Value from Walmart)
¾ tsp garlic powder
1½ tsp ground cumin
1½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 Tbsp cilantro
3 Tbsp lime juice
This salsa is made in the blender and is as easy as it is delicious! You throw everything in at once and blend for less than ten seconds. It’s that simple!
If you taste it right after blending, you will get a different mix of flavors than if you refrigerate it for a few hours first because it sort of marinates and evolves over time. I prefer the refrigerated flavors better, but both are good.
It definitely has a bit of a kick to it, so if you like milder salsas, try this one with less jalapeños and/or onion than I listed in the ingredients.
