Mexican Restaurant Style Salsa-Super Easy and Quick

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by beth2440

This is a recipe that I got off a food blog and tweaked to my liking. My ten year old daughter, Caroline, has eaten three batches in four days! It is so simple to make. I like it better after it has sat awhile in the fridge for the flavors to meld.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor or blender, throw in garlic and onion, pulse a few times to mince.
  2. Add tomatoes, juice of lime, cilantro(I buy a bunch and use about a 1/3), salt(1/2 tsp to start) and sugar(a good pinch to start).
  3. Pulse to the consistency you like. I prefer smooth.Keep tasting to adjust salt and sugar.
  4. Place in container and allow the flavors to meld for a little while. I like it both cold and room temperature.
  5. Break out the chips and enjoy!
