Recipe: The Best Tomato Salsa EVER


This salsa is legendary.  I’m not kidding.  Growing up, we always had this in our refrigerator.  To this day, some of my childhood friends have been known to walk into my parents’ house, open the refrigerator, and look for this.  Still.  The funny thing is, this is by far the quickest and easiest recipe ever.

I did have to specify that this is a tomato salsa in the title because ever since my sister moved to Mexico, my mom has strayed from the original recipe in this post.  Now she is all about some fancy tomatillo salsa, salsa that requires roasting of things, etc.  Not me.  I am not trying to roast things all day or really venture past the canned tomato aisle.  Which, of course, is why I just eat all of her new fancy salsa when I visit.

As always, these quantities are approximate.  I always mix it once, taste, and adjust.  If you do this, keep in mind that the flavors intensify as it sits.

The Best Tomato Salsa Ever

  • 28 oz. can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeno, roughly chopped
  • 3-4 green onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 T. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. – 1 tsp. salt

Are you ready for this?  Just throw everything into a food processor or blender and let it go until the texture is to your liking.  THAT’S IT.

Told you it was easy.  Enjoy, friends!
