Blender salsa might be the best salsa and easiest salsa I've ever made. Just throw all your ingredients into a blender and you'll have fresh salsa just like at the restaurants.
Have you ever ate at Moe’s Mexican restaurant? It’s like a Qdoba Mexican Grill or Chipotle. They are known for their queso dip but I like their fresh salsas as well. What I like most about this salsa is that the only equipment needed to make this is a food processor/blender and it tastes pretty similar to the one salsa at Moe’s.
No cooking on the stovetop is required. I’ll probably be bringing this to the lake this summer.
What Ingredients do I need?
In this section, you can find substitutes or suggestions for certain ingredients. I also will try and list out what the ingredients' purpose is for.
Tomatoes - Whole or Diced tomatoes from a can. I know what you’re thinking. If this is a fresh salsa why not use fresh tomatoes? I like using tomatoes from a can because these types of tomatoes have already gone through the process of boiling the tomatoes and removing the skin off. If you don’t mind doing that yourself, then go ahead and use fresh tomatoes.
Diced Tomatoes with Chilis - or 1 10oz can of Rotel tomatoes
Diced Chilis - 1 4.5 oz can
Cilantro - fresh is best, can sub parsley
Lime - freshly squeezed
Onion - yellow or white
Chili powder, garlic, and salt for spices
