Every member of my family makes a version of this Blender Salsa. It's easy, tasty, and an often requested recipe. I love to make it as part of weekend meal prep, so we have fresh salsa at the ready for Taco Tuesday.
1 - 15 oz can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, cut into quarters
Large handful of fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño (optional)
Peel the onion and cut it into quarters.
Cut the jalapeño in half. Remove the stem. If desired, remove the seeds as well.
Pour the can of tomatoes into the blender. Add in the remaining ingredients in the order listed above.
Blend until well combined.
Taste salsa and add salt if desired.
Tips on Blender Salsa
- If you prefer recognizable cilantro in your salsa, omit it from the blender and instead chop the cilantro and stir it into the salsa after you’ve blended it.
- Blender Salsa can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in the refrigerator.
- Fresh juice is best, but feel free to use bottled lime juice if that's what you have on hand.
