This homemade salsa recipe has been passed down through my family. It is usually made without measurements, but for the purposes of nutrition analysis, I tried to gauge the correct amounts.

Recipe Ingredients for Salsa

4 1/2 cups tomatoes, diced
1 cup onion
2 jalepeno peppers, sliced
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp cilantro
2 tsp lime juice

Recipe Directions for Salsa

  1. Set aside 1/3 of the diced tomatoes in a bowl. (I like to use a tupperware container to make storage easier later.)

  2. Blend another 1/3 in a food processor until almost pureed. Add this to the bowl.

  3. Add cilantro to the bowl. (I usually use dried cilantro leaves from the spice rack, but you can use fresh ones if so desired; just run them through the food processor to break them into small pieces first.)

  4. Combine remaining ingredients (1/3 of the tomatoes, the onion, the jalepenos, garlic salt, garlic powder, and lime juice) in food processor. Blend to desired level of chunkiness.

  5. Add mixture to bowl and stir thoroughly.

  6. Best when chilled before serving, which will allow flavors to develop and thereby, it will become more spicy.
