Quick and Easy Salsa

Recipe by TiffanieCourse: BreakfastCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking timeminutes


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans fire roasted tomatoes or use 4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (1 3/4 pounds)

  • 1/3 cup chopped white or sweet onion (half medium onion)

  • 2 medium cloves garlic (2 teaspoons minced)

  • 1 to 2 medium jalapeño or serrano peppers, with stems, membrane and seeds removed

  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 to 2 medium limes

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more to taste


  • Place tomatoes into a colander set over a large bowl and allow to drain. Save drained juice to add back to salsa if it is too thick or save to add to soups or other dishes.
  • Add chopped onion to a medium bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside for 10 minutes, drain, and then rinse.
  • Add garlic to a blender or bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped small. Scrape the sides, and then add the drained tomatoes, drained and rinsed onions, peppers, cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and the juice of half a lime. Pulse until your desired texture. Taste, and then season with additional salt or lime juice. (We typically add 3/4 teaspoon of salt).
  • This salsa improves with time so if you have the option, set it aside in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or more before serving. Store in the refrigerator up to a week.


  • Spice Level: For mild, remove all seeds and membrane and only use one pepper. For medium, remove most of the seeds and membrane and use two peppers. For a hot salsa, leave seeds and membrane intact and use one or more peppers.
