This salsa is a staple at our house. There's nothing better to serve as a dip for tortilla chips or as a condiment for your favorite Mexican food. Include jalapeno peppers for added heat.

This salsa had a thick pasty texture after having been refrigerated and a little too overpowered with onion. I love all kinds of salsa but would not recommend this recipe. Read More

This salsa was so good! To tone down the spice for the kids however add a little salt. I was extremely surprised with the complex taste of such a terribly simple salsa to make. I am going to jar this to give to friends and family! Read More

This salsa turned out pretty good although I ended up with salsa paste. Next time I think I'll watch how long I leave it in the blender! It does taste better after it's been in the fridge for a while too. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I have been searching for a salsa recipe that is easy to prepare and is the consistency of those served in my favorite restaurants. This is it!! Mine too thickened overnight but I just added some V-8 juice to it. This one is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My son Steve used this recipe for a sixth grade math project and we made it for his class. It was a huge hit! He snipped off the cilantro leaves to measure 1/4 cup rather than use an entire bunch and we found it to be just the right amount. No need to mince the cilantro or dice the onion since the blender does all the work for you. Read More

If this was a recipe for ketchup then I would say it was pretty good but as for salsa it was bland like eating a can of stewed tomatoes pureed. Here's what I added to make it edible 4 dried chiles de arbol three cloves garlic cumin salt mexican oregano paprika coriander and a pinch of pepper hit the puree button. It still didn't work on chips but I hated to throw it away after all the work so I used it in place of enchilada sauce with some leftover shredded turkey threw some cheese and crushed chips on the top and it was a pretty tasty weeknight casserole.
