Easy Homemade Salsa. This homemade salsa comes together in minutes and tastes just like it came from your favorite Mexican food restaurant! But better! Better than a store, better than a restaurant.
Chips and salsa are a way of life. A staple food in our home and in the state of Texas. This homemade salsa is one of the easiest to make, and it’s one of my personal favorites.
Once you’ve made your own fresh, homemade salsa (also known as pico de gallo), you might never go back to store-bought.
- The type of tomatoes you use matter! For this particular salsa I love using canned tomatoes. It’s quick and easy. If you’re using fresh I would go for a Roma tomato or a San Marzano. If using fresh tomatoes I would recommend roasting them in the oven first, or even boiling them on the stovetop for about 10 minutes.
- When adding the ingredients to the processor add the garlic, jalapeño and onion first. This ensures that it gets chopped up nice and fine. No big chunks of garlic left to disrupt your enjoyment.
- Start with a small amount of lime juice. Lime can be overpowering. So start small and add more to taste if needed. If you add too much there’s no going back.
- Adjust to taste. One of the best things about making your own salsa is that you can customize it and make it more to taste. More salt, more jalapeño for more spice, more honey, or more lime juice.
- Pulse the Processor: we want our ingredients to be chopped up but still be chunky, don’t overblend.
