Appetizers and Dips

Easy Restaurant Style Salsa

Who loves Mexican food, but never gets to eat her meal because she always, always fills up on the free chips and salsa first?  This girl.

This recipe comes together in 5 easy minutes, with very little chopping, and tastes EXACTLY like the stuff that you are served in your favorite Mexican restaurant.  I made this up tonight for some homemade fish tacos (recipe coming) which I will also be serving with my cilantro-lime sour cream.


Recipe from MountainMamaCooks

1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1- 10 oz can orginal Rotel
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends on how spicy you like it)
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro, washed
juice of 1 lime


Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.
