Make Your Own Fresh Salsa

Salsa is a lovely substance. Even better when it’s lovingly homemade, and the flavors are bursting with freshness. David and I pretty much never get sick of having batches of fresh salsa, just like we don’t really get sick of Mexican food…like ever.

Fresh, not dried, cilantro is key for a great batch of salsa.


Tip 1: Take care of your cilantro, and it will last at least a week longer.

Tip 2: Have fun while making your salsa — have a bag of chips on hand for taste testing so you can adjust the spices as you like them. More cumin? Yes, please.

Tip 3: If you want a spicier salsa, include a few (or all!) of the jalapeño seeds.


Fresh & Homemade Salsa
1 can (16.5 oz) diced tomatoes
2 T diced red onion
1/2 jalapeño, seeded
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until desired consistency is reached.
Taste test with chips and adjust salt as needed.
