Easy Blender Salsa

I’ve always been a big fan of the whole after-school-snack thing.As a kid it was my favorite part of the day. Still is. But now it’s become an after-school-after-work-after-play snack. Basically anytime I can sneak it in my day, I do. Oh look, I just woke up, time for an after-sleep snack.

As I’ve gotten a bit … older? Cause I’m really old (not.) …mature? (ha. that’s funny.) Since I was little (that works) I’ve come to like all sorts of foods for snacks, but when I was a kid it was one thing: salsa. Every. Single. Day. I had a routine.

Go to school —> Come home from school —> eat a jar of salsa. Yes, a jar. A whole section of our pantry was filled with Pace jars with my name on it. Literally. I wrote my name on them. In a family of nine children, it was necessary. Sometimes I am tempted to put my name on the salsa these days but then I remember it’s just me and my husband here. And he knows better than to eat the last of the salsa without replacing it.

This salsa is my new best friend. It costs a total of… maybe 3 dollars? And it’s so EASY. Like, 10 minutes easy. You just throw everything in the blender, give a few pulses, done. Perfect salsa. And a lot of it. For me it would last about seven seconds, but for normal people, this recipe will make a batch of 5-6 cups of salsa. So you do the math. That could last you a while, or you could feed a big party. Both are wins.

Salsa was the first thing I ever learned how to make (successfully) and I would make it entirely from scratch – tomato chopping and all. And I love made-from-scratch salsa with fresh off the vine tomatoes, I do, but something must be said for addicting restaurant-quality salsa that can be made in minutes without dicing a single tomato. And this is what must be said: “This salsa is PERFECT! ”

Ingredients

  • 28 ounces whole or diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 white onion, diced

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste (for me this is about 3 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons pepper)

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to blender. Pulse 5-6 times until ingredients all come together. (You can puree this salsa if you like but I like mine to have some texture. ) Taste salsa and add seasonings if desired. Store chilled in airtight container.
  • You can serve this salsa immediately but it is 1000x better if you chill it for an hour or more before serving!

can’t wait to try this easy peasy recipe. I already have all the ingredients in my pantry and fridge…thx!

This salsa looks so juicy, love that it can be made ahead of time!

I love salsa but never learned how to make it from scratch…this looks like the perfect recipe to start with!

God this looks good! I want to eat it right now and it’s only 8:30 in the morning! Probably wouldn’t go well with my coffee. 😛

You’re photos are always so bright and crisp and gorgeous, can I ask what you use for your photography?

I love it how the first 3 ingredients come from a can which are probably already in your pantry! Going to try this.

    After the amazing flavor, the best thing about this salsa is that it is so dang easy! Plus with those can ingredients in your cupboard, you save tons of money by not needing to buy a bushel of tomatoes!

So easy, fuss free and DELICIOUS! Definitely a must-make!

This is just like my favorite Mexican restaurant’s recipe. Love it! So, now that I have made this giant blender of salsa…how long does it stay good in the refrigerator?
Thank you!!!

    Hi Alyssa! Isn’t this salsa great?? I keep a batch of it in the fridge at all times – I just ran out yesterday so I’m about to whip some up again! I’ve kept it covered in my fridge up to 3-4 weeks and it was still good, it’s always gone by then so I’m not sure if it would last longer! 🙂

This salsa is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Thanks for sharing recipe!

    You’re so welcome Sandy, I’m glad you liked it!! 🙂

    So glad you like it as much as I do Sydney!! I’m a sucker for a good salsa and this one is my fav!

Could this salsa be canned after making it like “cooked” salsas can be? It looks so good im just thinking ahead 😉

    I haven’t canned this recipe but I’m sure it could be done following the necessary steps for canning!
