This quick and easy salsa can be made in just a few minutes with a food processor. Green onions instead of white onions give it a nice, mellow flavor to balance the kick of the jalapenos. This recipe also works well with 2-3 habanero peppers instead of the jalapenos. But be sure to remove the seeds and membrane from the habaneros first! Grab a bag of tortilla chips, dip, eat, and enjoy!

Delicious! This is some really good salsa! I cut the recipe in half and used a 14.5 oz. can of fire roasted tomatoes. I did cut back on the cilatro a bit and upped the amount of garlic to 2 tsp. of minced garlic from the jar. I added 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar 1/4 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. of sugar. I put this into my mini food processor and let it go.... I put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavors blend. Perfect with warm tortilla chips! Read More

This recipe was good but needed a little bit of help. I like my salsa very spicy. The recipe as written is a bit bland. For extra flavor I took 1/2 of an onion 2 tomatillos and and a tomato and roasted them in the oven for about 15 minutes. I added this to the salsa recipe. I also doubled the garlic and jalapeño and added a bit of cayenne some chili flakes and a dash of Mexican oregano. The end result was perfect! Read More

This was an awesome recipe. I also added about 1/3 cup of chopped onion and a tsp of sugar. I used Rotel chopped tomatos & green chilis to make it a little easier on myself. My husband and I ate the whole thing in one sitting. Read More

This was REALLY yummy. I halved this recipe so in case we didn't like it we didn't have excess. I should have made the whole batch. I omitted the cilantro and used fresh parsley instead. (Noone in this house likes cilantro.) I used a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and added in a half can of chilies. I didn't have any peppers so I used a couple generous shakes of Tabasco and I also added a shake of Worchestershire sauce. Very very good. I'll for sure make this again. Read More

Excellent salsa. I used 1 can diced tomatoes and 1 can rotel added 1/2 chopped white onion and only had one jalapeño so also used a small habanero. Forgot about the oil and didn't really need it. Won't buy store salsa again - too easy! Read More

Very good but it wasn't spicy enough. I am going to leave the seeds in the jalapeno peppers and see what happens! I also used yellow onions instead of green. Very easy to make though!!!! Read More
