There are many different kinds of salsas on the market today, and if you look closely there are hardly any that don’t have some questionable ingredient(s). Which lead me to eventually whip up my very own homemade salsa recipe. Not only is this recipe packed with only fresh ingredients, it’s insanely flavorful, and definitely addicting!

With classic ingredients like tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, and cilantro this salsa recipe is not only simple to make but full of traditional flavor! It’s so quick and easy to make that you’ll want to make homemade salsa instead of buying it at the store from now on. One of my favorite things to do is make this ahead of time and serve it with my favorite Mexican dishes like my quinoa burrito bowls, shredded chicken tacos, and my Instant Pot Skinny Enchiladas

I use my food processor to blend all of the ingredients until the salsa is the desired consistency. Smooth salsa is my personal favorite, but you can blend to whatever consistency you enjoy most.

    1. You can quarter and dice the ingredients on the low 2 setting on the vitamix. I’ve tried throwing everything together in the vitamix before whole or quartered and it didn’t turn out too well. But if you do it individually and then dice process it on low altogether it works well.

  1. This was so delicious! My favorite salsa. It was really fresh and was so good on everything. It makes a good portion so we are it over several days. I didn’t add jalapenos because I can’t do spicy but It was still very good.

  2. Perfect recipe! So easy to make and so many uses! I love eating fresh from scratch salsa. It can’t be beat! Sending extras home with adult kids and as gifts for friends. Who doesn’t love salsa?

  3. Do you add the full jalepeno or do you de-seed it? I added one full chopped jalepeno and it was spicy for me. My kids are from SoCal and we’re use to spicy but I think even this one with just one jalepeno is too spicy for them.

    1. leaving the seeds in will add extra heat to your salsa. I always remove the seeds but i’m not too upset if a couple make it into the salsa

    1. Salsa is delicious in an omelette or over a baked potato. Can be a meal over a baked potato with a little grated cheese. Salsa is also delicious over baked or grilled fish or chicken or mixed with rice

    We have been enjoying this so much with our garden veggies this summer! I must ask if you’ve ever canned this recipe to enjoy in the winter months? Any recommendations on how to do this?

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I am so happy to hear that you have been enjoying this recipe so much recently!
      Unfortunately, I have never canned this recipe before so I am not able to give any recommendations on how to do so. Wishing you all the best!
