Easiest Salsa...Ever

when you're from new mexico, you always have 3 things in the house - green chile (from hatch, duh), jalapeños (the hotta, the betta), and salsa (no, pace is NOT salsa). so, as i was whipping blending up the latest batch of salsa, i thought you, my 3 readers, might want the recipe. yes, yes?

it's the easiest thing you'll ever make. promise.

first, grab the goods (diced toms, jalapeños, garlic salt)
dump it all in the blendy
give it a whirl (chunkalicious) or two (saucalicious)
QA time - give 'er a taste and tinker with the salt and jalapeño ratio, if you gotta (try not to eat the whole batch straight from the blendy)

i know you'll be keepin' it all to yourself, but here's an idea for ya! toss it into a mason jar, slap a cutesie tag on it and give it away to yer friends.

EASIEST (and most deelish) SALSA EVER
2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes (or 1 can diced toms and 1 can rotel)
1/4 - 1/2 cup jarred jalapeños or 1 fresh jalapeño
1 - 2 Tbsp garlic salt

toss it all in the blender and mix to your favorite consistency.

now, you may be thinking, where are the onions? (barf) or i need me some cilantro in my salsa. (double barf) well, i don't like either of those things, so they got no bizness in my salsa. but, hey, you like onions and cilantro, g'head, toss them in, too.

if you wanna make a mean salsa verde, just substitute the diced toms with a few tomatillos. (dehusk those bad boys before tossing them in tho; maybe give 'em a rough chop, too.)

after you make your batch, come tell me all about it. how'd it taste? what'd ya substitute? give me all the deets.


  1. No cilantro?!! I'd have to add my cilantro, and an onion, but that does sound easy and delish!

  2. I was reading the top and was like "what...where's the cilantro" and then I read further down. Matt and I have been known to buy jarred salsa and a bushel of cilantro. We will cut up the entire cilantro and throw it in. YUM. I'll have to try this though. Thanks.


I love hearing from you, so I know that I'm not just writing to the wind.

Comments make me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Hugs and Smooches!
