Hands Down, Best Salsa!

Hands Down, Best Salsa!

I love Mexican food! I could possibly eat some form of it every day even though I probably shouldn’t. My problem is I don’t really like any store bought salsa, even the refrigerated ones. I have been making homemade salsa for awhile and I finally feel like I have perfected it. So I thought I would share it since I have gotten rave reviews from family members about it.


I begin by putting my onion, jalapenos, cilantro, green chilis, and garlic into the food processor. I take the seeds and the spines out of the jalapenos to keep the heat down. For the cilantro I cut off the stems and throw the whole top in. I put the food processor on medium until they are all coarsely chopped.


Pretty much all the fresh items go in including the green chilis which are canned.


Stick your nose in there and smell the freshness of all of those yummy things mixed up together. Oh my God, so good! Of course, do that when the food processor isn’t running. 😉


After inhaling all that goodness, I put two cans of diced roma tomatoes in and run the processor on medium again. Then I add in all the dried herbs and spices. It fills my processor up to the very top, so if you have a small one I suggest cutting the whole recipe in half. The way it stands now, the recipe fills 2 quart size mason jars. It lasts about a week in our house.




Try it on your eggs at breakfast, much better than ketchup. Oh and on your steak at dinner!

  1. This looks amazing!! I can’t wait to try it when the tomatoes and jalapenos start producing in my garden. I wonder if this could be canned for later??
    Thank you so much for sharing to the Monday Mish Mash.

    1. Definitely it could be canned. I’m not sure if it would change it during the process. I might have to try it to test it out. Thank you!
