Best Ever Salsa

READY IN: 10mins

Awesome flavor and you can make it the thickness you desire. I have made this salsa for years, and have made it countless times per request of friends and neighbors. I happen to love cilantro! Feel free to use different measurements. You may want to try a little, add more, etc.

I doubled the amount of tomatoes, and this was still an insane amount of cilantro. Maybe a "bunch" means different things to different people. I would suggest ripping off a SMALL handful of cilantro leaves and throw it in when processing the onion, leaving it chunky.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a food processor,pulse the onion, red pepper flakes, and salt until you get the chunkiness you like. Some like it chunkier than others.
  2. Scrape into large mixing bowl. Put cilantro into processor and pulse until fairly fine.Add to onions in bowl.
  3. Put tomatoes into processor and pulse until fairly fine. Put tomatoes into bowl with other ingredients.
  4. Slowly add reserved juice to mixture until you get the thickness you like.( I add all of the juice to this amount of ingredients). You can add a small amount of water if you like it thinner, but go slowly; you can always add, but you can't take out.
  5. Add salt and red pepper flakes to get the heat you like.
  6. This is my first posting, but this recipe has a lot of mileage! I hope you enjoy it as much as I've had making it for others.It can be doubled or tripled easily.
