Best Salsa Ever!

posted in: Recipes | 0

With the addition of a few select ingredients, my homemade salsa went from “pretty good” to “uh huh!!!” Because this makes a lot (about a quart) and because homemade, preservative free, salsa tends to go bad quickly (about a week or so), I will use it on many things – on top of burritos, in salad, in tofu scramble, with black beans and vegan cheese on baked potatoes – use your imagination!


  • ½ cup red onions, roughly chopped
  • 3 – 4 green onions, tops removed and roughly chopped
  • 1 – 2 Jalapenos, seeded and roughly chopped
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 5 – 6 ripe Roma tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 14.5oz can fire roasted chopped tomatoes
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp black pepper


  1. Place first 5 ingredients (through garlic) in food processor, and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Add tomatoes and seasonings, and pulse until chopped, but tomatoes are still fairly chunky.
  3. Adjust seasonings as necessary.
