  • 28 oz can whole tomatoes drained
  • 10 oz can tomatoes with green chilies undrained
  • ½ red onion about ½ cup
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and roughly chopped*
  • Juice of 1 lime about 2 Tbsp
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • A handful of cilantro about ½ cup chopped


  • Add your ingredients to the blender, placing the onion and jalapeño on the bottom.
  • Press the “Pulse” button on your blender until the desired consistency is reached. Do not simply put the blender on the blend or your salsa may liquify too much.
  • You can serve your salsa immediately or place it in the fridge for about an hour to allow those flavors to mend together.


*For a really spicy salsa, you can leave a few of the jalapeño seeds in. 
  • This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa.
  • This salsa should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  
  • This homemade salsa will last about a week in your refrigerator.
