Kiss store bought salsa goodbye because this one is too easy and too good not to make.

blender salsa

Kelsey Beiermann


  • 14.5 oz canned tomatoes I like Hy-Vee petite cut diced tomatoes with garlic & olive oil best with this recipe
  • 1 jalapeño remove seeds and ribs to your heat preference
  • 1/2 small onion yellow or red work best
  • 1-2 garlic cloves if you don’t like the taste of raw garlic, roast or sauté it in olive oil before adding
  • juice of a lime
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • handful of cilantro


  • Throw everything in blender and pulse to the consistency you like!


Adjust any of the measurements to your liking. Mine turns out pretty green because I have a heavy hand when it comes to cilantro.

This blender is my fave. I use it weekly for salsa, smoothies, and creamy pasta sauces, among other things. All parts are dishwasher safe and its small size makes it easy to store. 🙌🏻
