Homemade Mexican Salsa

Delicious fresh salsa made in minutes.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Fresh salsa is easier to make than you may think.

Just put the ingredients in the blender, blend, and within minutes it’s ready to serve.

In this recipe, the salsa is made with canned tomatoes (cut, diced or whole), jalapenos, onion, garlic, cilantro and seasoned salt.

This salsa is  great for making ahead of time and lasts nicely in the refrigerator.

It’s easy and quick to make and adds a really nice homemade touch when served with any type of Mexican food.

The most important ingredient in this salsa is the salt.

Even with all of the fresh ingredients, the salsa can taste bland if there isn’t enough salt in it.

So for sure do a couple taste tests and add more salt until it tastes just right.

Serve this salsa as an appetizer with tortilla chips, on top of scrambled eggs, on tacos, tostadas, burritos or as a dipping sauce for taquitos.
