I don’t know about you but I LOVE salsa…. all kinds. Thick and chunky, black bean, peach, mango, pineapple – yes, I could go on forever since there are so many different kinds. I use it on everything – dressing on my salad, on my burgers, and with my eggs. You get the picture, right? Salsa is delish! And there’s nothing better than restaurant salsa – hot and spicy.
I am always looking for a healthy, fresh, easy recipe for salsa. I like salsa with fresh veggies when I am putting it on a salad or a burger BUT when it comes to dipping chips, I want it to taste like the yummy kind I find in my favorite Mexican restaurant.
This is a great recipe because you use ingredients you can keep in your pantry. So, when friends drop by for a visit or you need a quick snack for family, you can whip this up. You can mix it up in a food processor, a blender or I have even used my Magic Bullet.

1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tbsp cilantro
- Slice jalepeno, set aside (keep as many seeds as you like)
- Strain the tomatoes, and the Rotel. Dump in a colander and let the excess juice drain. DO NOT rinse them
