Homemade Salsa

Homemade Salsa


My Uncle Dale first made this homemade salsa years ago and each member of my family has tweaked it to their own tastes. This happens to be how I like it best, plain and simple, but feel free to change the ingredients by adding fresh garlic, fresh onion, serrano peppers instead of jalapeños, etc.

1 10 oz can of Rotel
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 handful of fresh cilantro
2 jalapeños with stems/seeds
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1. Place peppers, cilantro, Rotel/tomatoes (do not drain), lime twist, and seasonings in blender with peppers on the bottom to ensure the blend correctly. Pulse only until you can see peppers have blended. You want it to be chunky, not runny.

2. Serve with chips or whatever you like. I keep mine in a Tupperware dish with a lid up to a week.
