Restaurant style salsa made at home in minutes! This is one of the easiest recipes and it tastes amazing!

Y’all know the kind of salsa I’m talking about, right? The smooth kind.

This restaurant style salsa is one of my favorite recipes, though. I love the fact that I almost always have the ingredients on hand, something that’s easy to do since a lot of this comes from cans.

But don’t freak out about the can situation! I know a lot of people hear ‘salsa recipe’ and instantly think of a ton of fresh produce. I am here to tell you that, in this instance (and possibly ONLY in this instance) this homemade salsa just tastes better using canned tomatoes.


You’ll need a can of whole, peeled tomatoes, an onion, some jalapeno, garlic, cumin, lime, salt, and cilantro.

Add everything to a blender or food processor and process until the mixture is mostly smooth.

Use this recipe to top my fried tacos or as a dip for tortilla chips.

I love how quick this homemade Mexican salsa comes together, with just a few whirs in the blender to get the perfect consistency.

This is pretty similar to Chili’s salsa recipe, except I added fresh cilantro, because I’m sorry Chili’s, but how could you forget to add cilantro? Not cool.

Feel free to adjust the spiciness by adding more or less jalapenos, but keep in mind that this gets spicier after it’s sat for awhile.

I like to leave it pretty mild when I’m making it and then it’s just about perfect for me after a couple of hours in the fridge. And for me, perfect is probably kinda wimpy. I’ll call it a medium spice, but after eating my way around Austin, Texas last week, I should just admit that no, actually, even mild food is too spicy for me. You Texas people are kinda crazy with the peppers.
