My Restaurant-Style Salsa-Small Batch

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by dawnie2u

This recipe is adapted from The Pioneer Woman's blog recipe. Everyone who has tried this salsa absolutely loves it. It is close to my Enough For A Superbowl Party Salsa only a much smaller amount. I think that this would make a great Mexican Gazpacho recipe for summertime. I have found that Hunts brand tomatoes is the best for this recipe. There really is a difference in flavor of brands. I also only use Rotel brand because the flavor is consistent. Here are the heat breakdowns: Mild: use mild (and don't use the jalapeno) Rotel Medium: use original Rotel Hot: use hot Rotel

What an easy and wonderful tasty salsa. I did add some red onion along with the green but otherwise followed the instructions. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the tomatoes, Rotel, green onions and cilantro into an 7-cup food processor (or make in half batches and combine when done). Pulse the mixture about 15 times.
  2. Add garlic, jalapeno (if using), sugar, salt and cumin.Pulse until the consistency that you like. I pulse about 10 mores times.
  3. Pour into a jar or airtight container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to let the flavors meld (If I am in a rush, I will stick in the freezer for about 30 minutes).
  4. It will keep for at least a week, and if we haven't used it all by then, which rarely happens, I add it into soup or chili.
