Homemade Blender Salsa is so fresh and could not be MORE easy! Watch the How To Video below.
It’s absurd the amount of chips and salsa consumed in our household. My Aunt shared this recipe with us, and it’s now our favorite salsa recipe. The best part is that you can make it year round since you can use canned tomatoes. When tomatoes are in season, they make this recipe even that much better. So pick up your favorite bag of chips, all the ingredients, and let’s get blending!
Here’s the ingredient line up. If tomatoes are in season, be sure to use them up in this recipe. If not…no worries, this recipe is still so good without fresh tomatoes.
Ingredients for Homemade Salsa:
- 2 – 16 oz. cans of stewed tomatoes (you can substitute with 1/2 of fresh tomatoes)
- 1 – 4 ounce can of chopped green chiles
- 1 garlic clove minced (one 1/2 teaspoon)
- 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped and seeded
- 1 bunch of chopped cilantro (add as much or as little as you like)
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 1/2 of a lime, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- pinch of pepper
How To Make Homemade Salsa:
- Add all the ingredients into your blender and blend to your preference. Serve with your favorite chips and enjoy!
The great thing about this recipe… is that you can control the texture whether you like salsa on the chunky side or a little more smooth. As you can see in the picture, we like ours on the smoother side. Do you have a good blender? We’re crazy about our Blendtec Blender. It makes this recipe a breeze.
If you like your salsa more on the hot side, you can leave the seeds in the jalapenos. Or you can add in a little hot sauce.
Why is my homemade blender salsa foamy? If after blending your salsa it looks foamy (bubbly) do not worry you have not ruined your salsa, this tends to happen because as you are blending air is being incorporated into your mixture which tends to create the foaming you are seeing, let it sit and the foam (bubbles) will start to dissipate.
How do I thicken my salsa? If you find that your salsa has come out too runny since this recipe is a blender recipe and not a cooked recipe you can strain some of the liquid out. To prevent the salsa from being runny in the future you can eliminate 1/2 a cup of the liquid from the tomatoes before adding into the blender.
Why is my homemade blender salsa not red? Do not fear if your salsa is not red (as you think it would be due to the tomatoes) you have not done anything wrong. With blending the salsa air is incorporated and that extra air during blending is what causes your salsa not to look red.
How long does homemade salsa last? Your homemade salsa will last anywhere from 4-6 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Hope this recipe becomes your family’s new favorite!
