Homemade Salsa

I made this the other day for the first time in a while. I’d forgotten how easy it was and how good it is compared to store-bought salsa! I got this recipe from a friend at my old school. It quickly became a favorite among the teachers and we always made sure she brought it to our potlucks. It really is easy because you used canned tomatoes, but it still tastes so fresh. Here you go!

Homemade Salsa

  • 1 medium yellow onion, cut into quarters
  • 1 large clove garlic, cut in quarters
  • 3 fresh jalapeños, seeded & cut in quarters {I usually leave one with the seeds in it- but that makes it very spicy.}
  • leaves from 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz can Mexican Style stewed tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • salt to taste
Put all ingredients in food processor. Pulse to chop; do not liquefy.


That’s it! See, I told you it was easy. And this makes a TON of salsa. I can barely fit all of the ingredients in my 12 cup food processor! So, I usually freeze half for later, and it still tastes great. Hope you enjoy!


PS- I changed the “recipes” tab at the top of my blog- when you click it now, you’ll see a list of all the recipes I’ve blogged about. I thought it would be nice to have an easy place to go to find what you’re looking for or a new idea for dinner!

    I love that you put all the recipes together! I am FINALLY getting to the rhythm of this being a mom and a “good” cook thing. It takes practice but I’m getting there! We love the Dr. Pepper pulled pork and will for sure make it again. I need to print out a few others that you blogged about to try soon!
