My Salsa Recipe

I have been working on trying to get a good salsa recipe for quite some time now. I think I’ve finally get the recipe down that I like. This recipe is inspired by all of the other “Chili’s Salsa” copycat recipes out there. The results may vary from batch to batch based on the size of the yellow onion.


28oz can of whole peels tomatoes (I use Hunt’s with no salt or sugar)
1 whole yellow onion
1-2 cup(s) of pickled jalapenos (flavor and spicy)
2 tsp of crushed red peppers
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp cumin (recent addition)

1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
generous amount of lime juice (half to whole lime)

Add all of this together in the blender and let it rip for about a minute. The consistency should be very runny, not chunky at all. Best of all, it should look very similar to Chili’s salsa.
