BEST Homemade Salsa
Who doesn’t love Salsa? I grew up on the stuff (remember – I’m half Mexican!) I’ve always loved a great Homemade Salsa recipe and have tried so many different kinds growing up. I’ve also tried many recipes myself and have enjoyed them all but think I finally found the easiest and yummiest way to make homemade salsa. It literally takes just a few minutes to make and tastes like it came straight from the restaurant. All I need is a big bowl of homemade Tortilla Chips and I’m set. 😉
I was able to make this homemade salsa recipe in my new Nutri Ninja ® | Ninja ® Blender DUO™. I’m not going to lie – I’m obsessed with the new Ninja. It is AMAZING!! It’s like they took all the best features from every blender/food processor out there and put them all into one. This kitchen tool can do everything! You can see from the picture below that it has so many options and does a great job chopping, blending, mixing and anything else you can imagine.

How to Make Salsa:
I’m not joking around when I say you literally throw everything into your blender or food processor, blend it up, and that’s it. There’s no chopping, no dicing, no nothing! Even the Roma tomatoes and cilantro can be tossed in whole. How nice is that?! And to be honest, I prefer restaurant style salsa like this over chunky salsa or pico. The fact that it’s this easy to make is even better!! I don’t have any experience with canning this salsa, but we’ve always been able to keep it up to a week in the fridge, either in a tupperware container with a lid, or a mason jar with a lid.
Here are a few variations you can make of this salsa recipe:
- If you like onion in your salsa, add 1/2 small onion, roughly chopped.
- You can seed the jalapeños if you want it less spicy, or leave the seeds in for a spicy kick.
- Add 1 tsp of honey for a hint of sweetness.
- If you don’t have Ro-Tel (canned diced tomatoes with green chiles) at your local grocery store, you can substitute half a can of diced tomatoes, plus a 4 oz. can of green chiles.
Just add all your ingredients… And blend!!
Yum! Until I learn how to make homemade tortilla chips, I’ll just enjoy this yummy homemade salsa with all the tacos and enchiladas I make. 😉
