Chili’s Copycat Salsa

Do you love Appetizers?? We kinda love them (A LOT!) in our family, and tend to think about them this time of year with the holiday celebrations and menus we have planned. We make a few for Christmas but for New Years Eve celebrations, we make exclusively appetizers. 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, I couldn’t find a salsa that I loved as much as the salsa from our favorite restaurant in Arizona. I have always loved Chili’s Salsa and started with a Chili’s Salsa Recipe from HERE and made a few changes. After making it several times now, I think I’ve finally perfected this copycat recipe.

How to Make Chili’s Salsa:

This copycat salsa only requires a few ingredients.

  • Canned tomatoes
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Jalopeños
  • Seasonings
  • Sugar

All you have to do is throw it into a blender or food processor and blend until it’s all combined! Simple as that.

How long does Chili’s Salsa last? 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.

If you love the Chili’s Salsa recipe as much as we do, then you’ll love it too!! Even my dad said it tasted just like it… and he can be very picky! 😉

  1. I want to try this recipe! I have a question, are the jalapenos in a cann, the same as green chilies like the Hatch brand? I am a bit confused sorry. 🙂

    This was so accurate to the chilis salsa!! My family downs it every time we go, and we were craving it tonight so i decided to make it!! It was fairly Difficult to find the dIced jalapeños at county maRket, but they were in the mexican food lane. So good guys! Thank you!
