Today is National Chip and Dip day! The first thing that comes to my mind is salsa! My favorite salsa is smooth, has a little kick to it, and best of all is quick and easy to make, right at home!
I love making this salsa for any gathering, or just to have at home to snack on some chips with. This salsa is so easy to make, and it can be made the night before a party and stored overnight. I love storing mine in a large mason jar. This salsa is my favorite because it is so smooth that all the flavors blend together. It’s great with chips, or to add to your favorite tacos!
- 1 medium red onion
- Juice from 2 limes
- 2 jalapeños (optional: a roasted habanero)
- 2 handfuls of cilantro (to taste/preference)
- 1 large can (28 oz) of whole peeled tomatoes
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 1 teaspoon cumin spice
- Up to 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar (sounds weird, but believe me, it makes a difference in taste)
I literally do no prep work to make this salsa. Once everything is peeled, cleaned, or measured out, I pour it all right into the blender/food processor. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 processing it until everything is finely chopped and looks smooth.
I would recommend chilling the salsa overnight so that all the flavors have a chance to blend together and serving the next day!
