Super Easy Salsa Recipe


I was making a sauce for a margarita chicken recipe the other day and to my surprise I stumbled across an easy way to make salsa. All I had to do was throw in some onions, and lime juice. I never knew that salsa from canned tomatoes could taste just as good as fresh. It had a good kick to it because I used tomatoes with jalapenos but if you want it milder, just use plain canned petite diced tomatoes.

Ingredients:

1 14.5 ounce can of petite diced tomatoes with jalapenos
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Salt to taste

Yields a good size serving of salsa for 4-5

Time: 10 minute prep and 30 minute chill time.

Directions:

Add all ingredients to blender. Blend until desired consistency. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

  1. I'm not a fan of spiciness, so I just use green peppers instead of jalapenos. Sometimes I add garlic too.
