Easy blender salsa

I got this recipe from my good friend Jamie's recipe blog, Dinner's Ready. I love salsa, but I pretty much hate all jarred salsa that you can buy in the store. Same thing with ranch dressing - the prepared stuff = gross. This recipe is so easy and yummy. I could eat it like soup! Jeremy doesn't think it's hot enough, but it usually turns out plenty hot to my taste, especially if you buy "Hot" Rotel. I don't always use all of the ingredients in this recipe either - just what I have on hand (as long as it's the majority of what's listed). This recipe makes A LOT - I usually have to blend it in two batches. I dont' put all the lime in either, but that's just my preference.


2 cans stewed tomatoes (not Italian style)

3 cans diced tomatoes with green chilies ("Rotel" brand is the best)

1 cup cilantro, chopped

juice from 2 limes

2 garlic cloves, minced

half a white onion, chopped

1/2 C green onions, sliced

half green bell pepper (can add a red too if you like), chopped

salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and puree.


  1. That salsa looks yummy. I could sure use some right now. :)

  2. We like salsa, I will have to try this!
