Homemade Salsa

It has been a crazy week y’all! And its only Wednesday! So how about some fresh, easy, homemade blender salsa? Yes, I call it blender salsa. It’s so easy to make and super fresh and healthy. Plus, you can keep it in your fridge for a week or so and munch on it anytime. Of course its great with my favorite El Milagro tortilla chips or its great on salads, tacos, eggs… the list goes on.

You’ll need:
6 ripe tomatoes
2 jalapenos
1/2 a large white onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 a bunch of fresh cilantro
1 lime
Kosher salt

First, do a rough chop of half of a white onion. It’s all going in the blender so no need for it to look pretty.

Remove the seeds from 2 jalapenos then give the japs a good chop.

Chop up the fresh cilantro. Smells so good!

Chop up the garlic. Use about 4 cloves… more or less depending on your taste buds.

Dice up the tomatoes. Leave the guts, makes the salsa nice and juicy.

Be sure to remove this part where the stems breaks off.

All that goes into the blender… depending on the size of your blender and how much salsa you intend to make you may have to do this in two batches. Just add half the ingredients, blend until smooth then add the rest.

Add about half a tablespoon of Cumin and a tablespoon of salt. I use kosher salt.

Add the juice of 1 fresh lime.

All blended up!

I store my salsa in mason jars in the fridge. Easy access for a quick snack or appetizer!

What’s your favorite salsa?
