It always seems so convenient to buy salsa in a jar, or even from the fridge section so it's "fresh". Bet you didn't know if only takes about 10 minutes to make your own. It is ridiculously easy! It only takes a few ingredients, a food processor (I love this one) and voilĂ ! Salsa. 

  • 6 small/medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup (or more) cilantro
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 chili pepper (or more or less depending on how spicy you like it) 
  • Juice of one-two limes
  • Salt to taste
  1. Put garlic in the bowl of your food processor and pulse a few times until it's fine.
  2. Roughly chop your tomatoes and onion and add them along with the cilantro, salt, lime juice and chili pepper to the processor. (Use caution with how much chili pepper you add if you're a wimp like me. Start with a small piece!)
  3. Pulse a few times until the salsa has your desired about of texture. The less you pulse the chunkier it will be. Don't pulse too much, or it will become very frothy.
