10 Minute Salsa Recipe

Salsa Recipe


For those who don’t know I used to live in Texas, so I take salsa and all chip-dipping foods very seriously. In my pursuit to get in the kitchen more, I decided to try my hand at making my own. Who knew it was so easy?! Here is the quick 10-minute salsa recipe, originally from this article but altered to my own taste.

Salsa Recipe


  • 28oz can of whole tomatoes
  • 1 small white onion-chopped
  • 2 jalepeno peppers-chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic-chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 handfulls of cilantro (who knows what a handfull is, I used 10-12 little stalk things)
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice 

Salsa Recipe Directions: 

  1. Chop onion, jalepenos, garlic, and cilantro 
  2. Pour can of tomatoes in food processor 
  3. Add chopped ingredients
  4. Add cumin, salt, and lime juice
  5. Taste and add more of the ingredients depending on your liking

Ultimately I REALLY like how this first batched turned out. My family liked it, the boy liked it, so I was feeling pretty good about it. Next time, I will add 1 extra jalepeno because I like things hotttttt and the 2 jalepenos the recipe called for didn’t do it for me. If you don’t want it very hot at all, I advise that you remove the seeds of the jalepeno, then chop it before adding it to the food processor.

Tell me, are you a mild, medium, or hot kinda salsa eater??

    This looks so easy! Quick question – I froze some cilantro and olive oil in ice cube trays because I don’t use it quick enough. I know it would add some oil, but do you think I could thaw them and use in place of fresh in a pinch?

      Yeah! It will definitely have the additional oil flavor to it, but I think the cilantro taste will still come through just fine!
