Restaurant-Style Salsa

While perusing one of my many Pioneer Woman cookbooks, I came across a recipe for Restaurant-Style Salsa. Given that my family orders out Mexican once a week, I knew I had to give the recipe a try! I tweaked a few of the ingredients by adding more or eliminating. My family absolutely loved this salsa! In fact, we made a whole dinner out of chips & salsa! haha!

Utensils Needed

Ingredients

  • 1 – 28oz can whole tomatoes with juice
  • 2 – 10oz cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3/4 cup cilantro

Let’s Make It Together!

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. I used my Ninja Blender.

Press the “pulse” button a couple of times until all of the ingredients are chopped and blended all together.

Season with any extra salt or sugar if needed. Your salsa should be a nice soupy consistency. For spicier salsa, add more jalapeños or garlic. For less spicy salsa, add a bit more sugar.

Serve with your favorite style tortilla chips. Mine are the Scoops!

Store any extra salsa in Mason jars. Seal tight and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Be kind and gift a jar to a friend or neighbor! I gave a small jar to our neighbors! *My recipe yielded just over 4 regular sized Mason jars (it just didn’t all make it into Mason jars, haha!)
