Homemade Salsa Recipe
Prep time
Total time
Another Texas favorite! It's so easy and fresh tasting that you'll never go back to the salsa in a jar again. Homemade Salsa is a great hostess gift...just dress it up in a nice jar!
Serves: 16 oz.
  • 14½ ounce can Rotel Tomatoes (or store brand tomatoes with green chiles), drained (regular or mild depending on how spicy you like your salsa!)
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 2 small limes)*
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Cover and chill overnight.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips.
*if you're in a hurry, just use lime juice from a jar.
