You know it must be impossible for a Spanish person to order seltzer and not get salsa. - George

I can never go back to store-bought salsa. It seriously tastes like tomato paste to me.
Homemade salsa is SO easy, and I make this one all the time. Of course, I got this recipe from See Jane in the Kitchen, who got it from Pioneer Woman.

Restaurant Salsa
1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
¼ cups Chopped Onion
1 clove Garlic, Minced
1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
¼ teaspoons Sugar
¼ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Ground Cumin
½ cups Cilantro (more To Taste!)
½ whole Lime Juice

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse 10 to 15 times, until desired consistency. Taste and season more if needed.

Refrigerate salsa for at least an hour.


  1. We are never, ever without a jar of this in our fridge. I just wish I could figure out how to feed it to myself through an IV drip.
