I love chips and salsa. However, I’ve yet to find store bought salsa that is anywhere near as good as that which most Mexican restaurants serve. Well, here is a salsa recipe that I really like for making restaurant style salsa without having to cook anything at all!
- 1 14.5 oz. can whole tomatoes, with juice
- 1 10 oz. can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 whole serrano pepper, seeds and stem removed, chopped
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. sugar
- ½ tsp. ground cumin
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- ½ whole lime, juiced
- Place all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor.
- Pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you like. I like my salsa to be a little chunky; not too thin.
- Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
- Serve with tortilla chips.
