his fast salsa recipe, like my guacamole, is created with essential ingredients. You’ll want to create homemade salsa instead of purchasing it from the store since it’s so quick and easy to prepare. This salsa may be made ahead of time and served with your favorite Mexican dishes, such as these grilled chicken fajitas. Throughout the week, it’s also wonderful in breakfast tacos, taco salad, and as a dip for quesadillas and chicken taquitos!
- 1 28 oz can of fire-roasted tomatoes
- 2 jalapenos*
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- ½ cup packed fresh Cilantro
- 2 TBS fresh lime juice
- 2 TBS honey
- Kosher salt and pepper
- Cumin to taste*
Throw all ingredients in your blender, food processor, Vitamix or Ninja and pulse until all ingredients become smooth. Taste and adjust to your liking.
It’s as simple as that!
*If you enjoy some heat in your salsa, leave some or all of the seeds and stems in from the jalapenos. If your jalapenos end up not being very spicy, add in a few pinches of cayenne.
Enjoy the taste of cumin? Add in a couple of pinches (it lends a smoky flavor)
If you want this salsa sweeter, add more honey. Not sweet, don’t add any honey. It is completely flexible and will work just about any way you make it.
Have a tomatillo on hand, roast it and add it in, that would be delicious!
I don’t enjoy onion in this, however, if you do feel free to add in 2-3 TBS chopped red onion.
