Restaurant Style Salsa

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, February 4, 2010

Ever a little disappointed in the jar of salsa you just decided to try from the market?  Not into chopping tomato, after tomato, after tomato and getting cilantro stuck in your fingernails?  Well, thanks to Pioneer Woman, I’ve found a salsa recipe that’s sure to satisfy and takes, quite literally, less than 10 minutes to prepare.  And, The Phoenix, Mr. Salsa Snob Extraordinaire, approves.  (I say that in the most loving way possible, honey.) Amen.

I don’t even have much to say.  Just throw it all in a blender or food processor and pulse to your desired consistency.

That’s it.

But don’t forget to let the flavors meld in the fridge for awhile.  Muy importante.

Enjoy!  And, Go Colts!

  1. Now this was a good salsa. Much better than any Pace, Tostitos or other jar salsa you get in the store. And even better than the restaurant style salsa’s you can get in the produce chillers. And I can even make this salsa for the super bowl party, and best of all I get to use a blender.
