A friend from work gave me this recipe. I had previously dismissed any salsa recipe that used canned tomatoes but this one is really good. Enjoy.


  1. Blend tomatoes slightly in food processor or blender.
  2. Add salt, green chiles, finely diced green onion and pressed garlic. You can adjust the chiles depending on how hot you like it.
  3. Refrigerate to let flavors blend if you have time. If not, it's ok to serve it right away.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips, with quesadillas, or anything you use salsa with.

Wow! I was skeptical, but it turned out great! I took a tip from a previous comment and added a pinch of sugar and some freshly squeezed lime juice. I also used Rotel a can of tomatoes since I didn't have just the green chilies by themselves. I refrigerated for a couple of hours, and it was soo good!

This recipe is so easy that you won't believe how wonderful it tastes. I made a small change by adding a can of Rotel and eliminating the can of green chiles (the Rotel has green chiles already in it). I also added a little white sugar and freshly squeezed lime juice. This salsa is out of this world and has quickly become a favorite at our house. Thank you for sharing.

GREAT recipe for salsa! I was very impressed with the finished product, and will be making this many times to come! I do want to note that if you do not let it chill it doesnt take on the other flavors and has an overpowering taste of tomatoes. I let mine sit for 40 minutes, and it was fabulous!!!
