Chili’s Copycat Salsa
Do you love Appetizers?? We kinda love them (A LOT!) in our family, and always have plenty at family gatherings and parties. Once appetizer we ALWAYS have is chips and salsa.
The salsa recipe I’m sharing today has been a favorite since we lived Texas. When we moved to Texas, we didn’t have a Chili’s restaurant nearby, and since we loved their salsa, I wanted to try a copycat version.
How to Make Chili’s Salsa:
This copycat salsa only requires a few ingredients.
- Canned tomatoes
- Fresh tomatoes
All you have to do is throw it into a blender or food processor and blend until it’s all combined! Simple as that.
- Don’t puree: chop up the larger chunks but you don’t want soup
- Turn up the heat by adding more Jalapenos
- Allowing the salsa to rest for a few hours will help blend all the flavors together, but it is ready to eat right away.
- My favorite way to store them is in a mason jar in the fridge.
Storing: The flavor of salsa is always best the first couple of days, but it will keep in the fridge for up to a couple weeks.
Great Gift: This is such an easy salsa to make that I like to double the recipe so that I have extra to give to neighbors and friends. Pair it with a bag of chips and it also makes a great teacher gift for teachers.
